Coffee Shop Connection (Ike Aftermath Update)

Hi friends

Just a really quick check in to say hi and let you know we are OK. We are back home, and our home is still without power, but tonight, we found a coffee shop in town that has power and a wireless connection, so we are soaking in the glory of hot coffee, air conditioning, and the Internet! Aaaahhhhhhh.....

I have SO much to share with you...lots of photos and anecdotes about life as an evacuee and now Ike survivor.... Let me say, we have it so good compared to so many folks further south and east of us who were absolutely devastated. Although we have no power, we have gas appliances so we can cook and we have hot, we have been blessed with unseasonably "cool" weather (for us...80 high, 60 low), so opening the windows at night is actually an OK thing! Yep, we got it pretty good...

I so appreciate all your comments and concern - sorry that I don't have time to visit with you all right now...but soon, hopefully very soon, I will be able to spend some quality time with you all...

Meanwhile, please continue to pray for the folks who are suffering...there are thousands and thousands of them. I can't believe that just three short weeks ago my friends from Colorado were here and we were enjoying Galveston and Kemah together...and now...utter devastation in the very places we very sad....

I'm looking forward to sharing more soon...I miss you all so very much...

Hugs and Blessings,


  1. Hi Becky,
    Glad to hear you are okay and back at home! Hopefully your power will be on soon. The state of MN has sent down "power" people to help.
    Take care,
    Warmly, Deb

  2. Glad you are ok, continued prayers for all. I just cant imagine how awful that would be. I am glad you got coffee and the internet and hope your power is on soon. :)



  3. I've been watching the news ~ I am amazed at what I'm seeing and have been praying, and of course will continue to. I wish I could do more. I work in insurance and I've been hearing of all the destruction. I'll especially be praying that the insurance process goes swiftly and smoothly for all with losses.

    PS ~ I'm glad you got a little bit of internet, AC & coffee!

  4. So glad you have a house to come home to!! Thanks for taking the time to check in and letting us know you're okay!

    Thank God He has kept you and your family safe through this devastation. I keep jumping on your website looking for an updated post and was so relieved to see this post. Looking forward to your photo journal. It's still hard to believe we were there just a few weeks ago. I'm so glad I have several souvenires from our visit.
    We love you!

  6. I'm so glad you're okay! Hopefully, you'll have power soon and things will get back to normal. ::Jill

  7. Becky, so glad to see your post and know you at least have some comforts. I am praying for those whose loss has been large.


I am deeply appreciative of the time you've taken to leave a comment - thank you!
