Hasta La Vista Ike, Hello Power!

Well, Ike has left the building ~ so to speak. He is still making messes north of here and still enjoying a good bit of power. And speaking of power...
Ours came back on just about 1/2 an hour ago. The whole family cried out (minus the man) with glee when the lights suddenly came on! Way to go Cleco. Really wonderful timing actually, cause I was just feeling the connection between the window a/c and the extension cord going to the generator, and it was HOT. We were going to have to turn the thing OFF. Oh woe. woe is me. It is absolutely amazing to me how cranky being hot can insight me to get!
On a happier note, it took me a whole 1/2 hour to get to blogging because I put nice fresh, clean sheets and pillowcases on my bed and am blogging right from it this very minute. A little silver lining to being married to a hero called to duty - I have the bed to myself for just a wee bit of time and I am taking advantage of it.
I am thankful that my husband is willing and able to help people in need, even at risk to his own self, and even when they were dumb in the first place. How could I complain at such a blessing?

So thankful the S4J family got through it all safely! And I'm thankful for heroes like your husband even if he is being pressed into service due to others poor choices. I'll pray he gets home safe and sound. Sounds like you've got everything on the homefront covered. ;)

Our nephew is a traveling businessman who was in New Orleans on business when Gustav was pressing down, then in Houston when Ike was coming in. He's home for a couple of days of peace and quiet. We joked that he'd better be careful or he might just experience an earthquake while he's here.

glad you are safe. I have a desk top, so am in severe covet-ation re: your laptop and the ability to blog from bed. God bless your fam, and especially your hubs as he's in harm's way.
