Ivan has passed

Got up early this morning to inspect the damage from Hurricane Ivan, which passed over us last night. Everything was pretty much in order, except that the pine bark mulch in one of our front flower beds decided that rafting was much more exciting than drowning.

We lost power a couple times before going to bed, but never for very long. Phone service stayed active, but cable service dropped out on occasion. Probably the most worrisome event was the slow approach of water towards our house due to the intense rainfall. The flood waters crested about 2-3 feet away from our house, so we were spared from a basement swimming pool. Those in along the Gulf Coast in Alabama, and Florida were not so lucky.
