The day is overcast and cool. Temperature, low 60's (F). Ike remnants passed through our area over the weekend. There is flooding across our county. We discovered a bit of roof damage. We're sure it will be easy to fix.
We cannot believe the power that was Hurricane Ike. There were lives lost in St Louis. Major flooding is to continue, in our area, this week. I cannot begin to imagine what it must be like in Texas and Louisiana! Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those, affected by this storm.
While waiting for the fellow to come by and assess what needs to be done to the roof, I took a little walk around our yard and gardens.
Autumn officially arrives this coming weekend. It's beginning to feel very much like Fall, here.
