OT: Checking in after Hurricane Ike Hey guys. We got out of the way of Ike but were still caught in some of the outside bands so we didn't get our power back here in Iota, LA until 10:00 last night. We don't know exactly how bad it is but we do know we have severe flood damage at our house in Bridge City, TX. The whole town is underwater. If anyone saw a picture of a Pizza Hut half underwater during the hurricane coverage, that's about a mile from our house. The town is pretty much screwed right now. What's most important though is that my friends and neighbors got out safe. I found out yesterday afternoon that my cousin and uncle had to be rescued by a dumptruck when water at his house was almost to the top of his above ground pool. I had last heard from a friend of mine about 6:30 Saturday morning with a little water already in his house but his phone died. After hearing about the rescues taking place and the people on top of homes and businesses, I was very concerned. He text me at 9:00 last night though and he and his dad are ok. That last paragraph is all that matters to me folks. Homes and possessions can be replaced but I can't replace my cousin or my best friend. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers you extended me before I left. I really appreciate it.
