More Ike

After a nap through the end of the lingering storm, Conn and I took a walk through the neghborhood. Lots of felled trees. A variety of damage. No power anywhere.

Then we had a late lunch and started working on the yard. Most of the front yard is cleaned, but we barely made a dent in the back yard.

We worked until dark then walked over to Virginia’s. We passed a few spots of reestablished electrical service, and about 10pm Virginia got her’s too.

No such luck here, though some of the street lights were working.

Sunday morning we got more rain, which my aching body slept through. The familiar hum of chainsaws can be heard throughout the neighborhood.
