Aftermath: Hurricane Ike

We survived the hurricane with relatively little damage; our yard was littered with broken tree limbs, leaves, and moss. No damage to our house that we can tell. We lost power by 10pm Friday night, and it was restored to us by 3pm on Saturday. We were incredibly fortunate, as many thousands around the Houston area are still without power and will be even for the next couple of weeks. Lots of downed trees around our neighborhood. By 4am Saturday morning, the wind seemed to be at its highest intensity around our house. The radio confirmed at that time that the eye was passing over downtown Houston, 30 minutes northeast of us.
