We Lucked out for both storms!

I evacuated for Gustav, in retrospect I didn't need to, but had the predictions been correct I would have had serious damage. I got power back approx. 24 hours after the eye had passed, I was only home for about 3 hours of no electricity :-) I was VERRY lucky about the power; downtown didn't have power for another 24~36 hours and lots of people were out for 1.5~2 weeks.

Ike was a total joke overall, for some reason we kept getting feeder bands over my house all night, so 60~70 mph winds, but the power never even went off.
