Our house stands in an ocean of trees.  Surf was up last night.  Waves of roar sounded, along with the crack of breaking hulls.  This morning there was a sea of leaves in the yard.

Now we're learning how to do without.


  1. that was quite a storm. I have been telling my crew I don't remember one like it.Hope you are doing well and don't have to do without too long. We would have been in a sea of leaves except over the past few years we had to cut down every single tree in our yard due to drainage problems... the last three went only in August. I guess better for us cut down than blown down.

  2. We felt the effects of Ike, too. Never thought I would have to deal with hurricanes in Oklahoma.
