Hurrican Ike brought 80 mile per hour wind gusts to Ohio and beyond, and Megan and I have been without power since Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. We here rumors that electric service will be restored by Wednesday evening at 8:00 p.m., but other sources are telling us that the lights may not come back on until the weekend.
Fortunately, my camera batteries were fully charged and I've been taking pictures. We had a large limb fall in the backyard, but it missed the house by feet. In the front yard, we had a limb side swipe the garage, and we only have a dent in the gutter. We were lucky.
