Ike - Day Five

Still in the dark blogging by iPhone.

Crews were out in the neighborhood piling up storm debris. Lots of tree limbs and quite a number of trees down, especially pecan and Bradford pear.

Schools are out until Monday and lots of kids were out and about.

Tonight there was a flurry of activity in the street as some street lights turned on. Almost a party. I wonder if we'll continue to celebrate street lights a month from now.

Kudos for the day to to AM radio for providing continuous news coverage as opposed to their usual format of baseball games and UFO talk shows.

BTW there ARE strange lights in the sky! Hopefully they'll to away after we get our light pollution back.

You should draw a map of the strange lights. Then we can connect the lights in rough shapes of deities and use them to steer huge boats around the sea!

Street lights? STREET LIGHTS!

Luxury. We dream of street lights.

Isn't it nice to see the stars from your house in the middle of Houston! I know I was glad to see them again regularly when we moved to Alaska.
