Last Saturday, before Ike visited us, AEP sent many crews to Texas to help restore power and normalcy to the real victims of the hurricane. When the remnants of IKE came this way, they contracted with power crews from Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky and Oklahoma.
Still, some residents won't be back on the grid until Saturday.
Now, if I can only get my cable (and Internet and phone) restored...
Here's some video I took before the winds got really strong Sunday and before I came to my senses and realized the potential danger I was in.
This homeowner lost his front porch.
And this one lost his car and his garage, not to mention the 200 year old hackleberry tree.
