The Aftermath - Part II

Here's a couple of pictures of the damage in the backyard. You can't tell it, but the tree in the middle of the pic was uprooted and is leaning over the back portion of the house. Paul Thomas and one of the Torbit boys came over and cut off the biggest limbs that were sitting on the roof.


Here's Arlene (and me) cleaning up and working off our "Ike 15." You can see where the fence was knocked down in a few places.

Oh I'm sorry about the fence but overall not as bad as we thought! I'm glad everyone is safe and dry and now, cooled off with some AC.

I am so glad that you feared so well and that you are safe!

Wow, sounds like the fence companies in Houston are going to be enjoying quite the influx of money! I'm glad you only sustained minor damage and that you are safe. The world would not be the same without our Dallas.
