Power Return After Ike --- Almost There--Almost!!!

Hurricane Kyle is history...after hitting Nova Scotia last night and moving northward and weakening. Early today, subtropical storm Laura formed in the north-central Atlantic and the 5 day forecast takes it toward the British Isles with 60 mph winds...interesting.

Our weather is just so pleasant and willl continue to be mornings and warm afternoons with low big changes but the humidity will increase Saturday and Sunday and there could be a shower or two both days.

Centerpoint's 9 pm report this evening...95% have power and 5% do not (down to 114,000 without power). There are lot of people filled with joy this evening.


And so, joy is our Spanish word of the Spanish it is alegría--pronounce ah-lay-gree-ah. We were filled with alegría when our power returned.

Speaking of joy, bring joy to the little ones you love by giving them a gift of education which is also entertaining. Our DVD called Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco Volume 1 has been recognized as a Top 10 Educational Product for 2008 by Dr. Toy!!! You can order through, Ventura's Educational Supply, Dolo Publications, Carlex Inc., The Curious Mind Store,,, and

Crews were picking up tree debris all over the place today, including our neighborhood. Walking along the Oyster Creek trail this morning, we noticed that the decaying trees were really starting to stink, especially around Oyster Creek. What a smelly job crews have ahead...and that is a really trouble spot because there are snakes and even alligators. But the trees will have to be moved because they are going to clog the creek with the next big rain. I'm sure other area creeks and bayous are in the same boat.

The Baines Middle School resource class is still ready, willing and able to do the laundry for anyone who needs it. Please contact Ms. Mitchell.

Thanks to all the folks working so hard!!!

Be safe!
