The neighborhood looks bad.

I was at my mom’s house today. It’s her birthday and I took her beautiful flowers from FJ Florist in south Houston. They are INCREDIBLE! (And relatively inexpensive as well.)

Well, it rained on the way there, not much, but a little. I prayed we’d get rain in my neighborhood.

Then I came home. There are some trees down and lots of shredded foliage. It looks like it did about a week after Ike hit. Boy, I’m glad everyone’s okay at our house.

Some places are out of power, still. The storm hit several hours ago. There was also one house that caught on fire and burned quite a bit, but not near us.
