Hurricane Gustav Damage

A few pics I took before and after the Hurricane.



Some differences are obvious: roof damage, boarded windows. Some are more subtle. Check out how neat the yard looks in the before picture compared to all of the small limbs scattered around in the after pic. Also, look closely at the neighbor's tree behind my garage. It's thinned out quite a bit after the storm.

I also saw some National Guard troops rolling through town.

While we're on the topic of Hurricanes, if you own your own home and you live in an area prone to Hurricanes, you may be surprised to learn that you probably have a "hurricane deductible" that is substantially higher than your standard deductible. You might want to look into it before the next storm comes.

A few more pics here.

Prayers and best wishes to those in Ike's path.

Still there?...Is the family ok?

Yup. Still here and all is well (thanks for asking). I just haven't had time to post anything lately.

How'd you weather the storm?

Kevin - "pax tecum" said...

We did well...just some minor shingle damage, flashing... we're all healthy and thankful.

Take care...
