We were very lucky that our home did not get damaged, although we had about 2 days of hard clean-up work on our little 1-acre property.
Can you tell what this is?
This was the kids trampoline, we were concerned that the wind might lift it and do more damage, so Mr. H strapped it to the big trees on our property line....thank goodness he did or it might have become a flying saucer!
Here is the famous Texas City Dike, it looks like part of the Gulf. It used to be about 5 miles long and full of restaurants, bait camps, great fishing piers and even a nice beach area.
Other people weren't so lucky and their homes and property were badly damaged...
These are some of the most interesting shots, I took these from our boat a couple weeks after the storm.
The most distinct memory I have of the storm though, and I wish I could have gotten a picture of it (or at least a video), was on the night the storm hit... We were sleeping in the living room because Mr. H had already set up the window unit connected to a generator because we knew the power would go out. The living room is surrounded by windows and the sound of the tree branches scraping the windows was freaking me out because I just knew at any moment one would come flying through the windows, so I got up and went to get in my bed (without AC - but no windows other than french doors leading out to the pool). As I walked down the hall and looked out towards the pool, it looked like a WAVE POOL! The wind was causing the water to go from side to side and it really looked cool so of course I had to wake up everyone so they could see too!
I'm linking to Miss Jenny's Alphabet Thursday for the letter "I"! Be sure to check out all the other cool "I" posts this week!
Well that's it for now, I have more interesting photos but I think I may save those for another post :)
