We made it back home last night after being evacuated for Hurricane Ike. Our area has a lot of damage that is typical for hurricanes. There are alot of trees down, carports scattered and fences down, but that is the majority of damage for Mid-County. We know that some people have major damage but Nederland was spared. Our house had almost no damage at all. A little water got in the back door but that is easy to fix. The church lost its big awning in the front, also a little siding and some water came through a window but that is all. We praise the Lord for helping us through the storm. We still have no power and it could be off for a little while. We are not sure when we will have it back. Overall we are thankful for God’s protection.
