Ike: Compare and contrast

We were in Sugar Land for three days. There are downed trees there, maybe three or four in an area of one hundred homes. There are probably forty or fifty big limbs down. One house lost some shingles off the roof. But that was it.

We came home and the lights are still down. But at the first main light there were two police officers directing traffic. But when rush hour began thirty minutes later, they were gone. What’s up with that?

The main light in the whole neighborhood is out, but it hasn’t been too bad. People are generally pretty good about following the rules.

Our neighbors are all out in their yards, sitting on chairs and having discussions. It’s fun and yet odd. Normally there isn’t anyone out in our neighborhood except the children.
