lights still out at good manor~


well, we came home monday late afternoon to no electricity due to the category 1 gale force winds brought on by hurricane ike.....
over 1millions central ohioans were without power on
sunday night and many many still are LIKE US!! so we have been showering
at our dear friend sharons home and had a lovely dinner with her last night...
she is a real jewel and her southern charm is so infectious!
being around her and nina last week, i caught myself saying y'all quite frequently! lol..
i will post more about the WONDERFUL retreat when the electric comes back on...
some are saying Friday but most are saying Sunday, ugh!
i know it could be alot worse and am thankful it is only the electric that is off and good manor is still in tack and the dogs are all fine....
xoxox
ps...below are pictures from the area surrounding good manor and the wind damage
and me blow drying my hair with the computer ac adapter hooked up in the SUV
on our way to dinner monday night, lol..

Hurricane Ike was not very nice! I have family up in Houston and surrounding areas that are still dealing with the aftermath of that powerful storm. We thought for awhile that we might have to flee, but our house became a place of refuge instead. I hope your power is restored soon. - Teresa
