Hurricane Ike strikes Kentucky

Wow! What a day yesterday was as Ike came through our City. We did not get one drop of rain but 75 - 81 mile winds for close to 4 hours. Needless to say that was a first for us and now we have pretty much no power in most parts of the city.

Over 280,000 residents without power and as I drove in to work this morning I had to detour two times because of trees down and power lines across the road.

Oh well at least we don't have the water to deal with. They say it will be at least a week to get power restored to everyone so I will probably be online when I can get to a computer with power. Hope everyone else is ok. I'll check in when I can.
