    Default Hurricane Ike

    Hi all. AOK here at home. I was 40 miles west of the center of the storm and quite a storm it was. Here in Katy, TX I recorded 75mph sustained winds for 8 hrs (95+ gusts at times). Some minor damage, was only without power for 21 hrs. Heading back to work tomorrow - my building was in, the path of the eye. Several windows missing and the roof hatch blew open allowing water to rush in. Top 3 floors (20 story) flooded (building is an open atrium all the way to the top). At home I sustained some fence damage and roof damage. Leaks entered the house but I still have a house thank goodness. Could have been much worse. I will need to replace a preamp that fell prey to Ike. Thanks for all of your concerns - there are many people in Houston who need our thoughts and prayers. Many will be without basic necessities for weeks. This is/was my last 'cane to ride out.

    Any other H-towners here? I work out by the Imperial Valley FEMA POD - there was a shooting at the center. SWAT had to be called in. Why can't people act civil during times of disaster?
