HURRICANE IKE!

The day after we returned from Asia, the hurrican was on it's way to Houston. It was nearly empty on the shelves at Walmart Thursday afternoon...


This time the storm hit our area, and it was storm and rain all night. We could hear the roof was flying away. We were up all night, luckily we had electricity! The water started to come in after a while, so we had to put out alot of buckets. Here you can see the water is coming down inside the paint.


The next morning we could go outside and look at the damages, our house was the worst damaged in the whole neighbourhod.






Today we are cleaning up in the backyard, the hummingbird feeder came back up, and the hummingbirds were quick to come back to the feeder.


We also found this creature, whatever it is..

Uff - håper det ikke tar alt for lang tid før ting er tilbake til normalen hos dere! Tenker masse på deg og dine i disse dager! Pass godt på dere alle sammen!

So glad you are feeding the hummers. FYI: Do not add red food coloring to your mix. Bring to a boil 1 cup sugar to 4 cups water - no food coloring...it is bad for the hummers.

Hei!
Takk for mail, dermed fikk jeg tittet innom deg igjen også! Lenge siden sist!
Ike for pent med oss ser jeg -vi fikk et tre delt i to, et gjerde blåst ned og ellers et par små lekasjer. Og bassenget FYLT av blader fra alle naboer tror jeg... for en jobb!
men nå er vi tilbake til normalen. Krysser fingrene for at også skolen snart får tilbake strøm, guttene har hatt to uker "fri" nå!
Snakkes -
