Hurricane Ike Update – 2015h

A nice breeze, with a few gusts. Few drops of rain. We heard a transformer blow in the neighborhood about 15 minutes ago, but we still have power. I relented and boarded up a few critical windows — Jennifer can be very persuasive.

Oma’s power (she lives a few miles northwest of here) is out already. She had vowed, in the event of an outage, to get in the car and head to Chicago, but I think she was expecting the storm to come before the power failure.

Why the power problems before the storm?

  1. This is probably the wrong thread for nostalgia, but you are the only other person I ever knew (well – besides my sister) that called their Grandma “Oma”. May she rest in peace.

    What are you German or something?
