This is a Hurricane Ike post - our dad and brother went and helped our grammy during the hurricane.
She lives 120 miles northwest of Galveston and this is just a few photos of the damage.

She lost several big trees - one went in her house! She was okay - just scared.
We would have been too (so would Joe Stains!) The root span was 12 feet high our dad said!

Trees blocked each entrance onto her property, but they cut up the trees and tarped Grammy's roof! She will not have power for at least a week.. our Aunt Jocelyn is out too... plus her phone lines too!

Daddy brought Grammy a generator so she has some power

Sorry to hear about your Grammy's house but we are so glad she is okay.

We feel badly for your grammy! Thank goodness that tree missed her house! We're glad she has a generator! A week is a long time not to have electricity!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I'm glad your Grammy is OK. And it's good your family went to help her. That is a really big tree.

Wow, that darn Hurricane really did some damage. Our friends who live in Glalveston haven't even been able to get in to see if they have a house still! Glad your Grammy is okay.
