Starring: the Fearless Bakers and their fellow Texans, the Smiths
Ike didn't stand a chance against these fearless Texans! They weathered the storm like pros. Facing down the wind, the rain, and looking the hurricane right in the eye! The house on the rocks stood still. The foliage surrounding them... not so much.
Following the Ike challenge, our Texans have spent their time cleaning their yards, their neighbors yards, their church friend's yards. They've been sweaty and hot, but have maintained their positive attitudes throughout. Nobody is even complaining about the stench. ;) Could be because even though they are without electricity, their gas powered water heater has provided much needed relief (to their bodies, spirits, and noses) in the form of nice hot showers.
Updates to come.
