Today a good friend who stayed in Beaumont went by our house to check it out. She said there is a little damage to the siding around the roof, our fence is beat up and mostly down, and our yard is covered with branches. We have a lot of trees around our house so it is great news that none ended up on our roof!

For Camryn: She saw Fluffy and Leo (our outside cats) and was going to make sure they are fed.

The electric company is saying they will have power on in 80% of homes in Beaumont by September 25th. We are hoping it will be soon! My parents have been so welcoming and generous to us, but there is no place like home. Not only do we need the power on, but right now there is no trash pick-up and Beaumont is under a boil water notice. Also, there is salt water in the water supply and they said that it will be that way for 3 to 5 more days. And the sewer system needs to be up and running. Our biggest concern right now is our refrigerator. We did not have much left in there but whatever is left is spoiling. We need to clean it out soon, so our refrigerator will not be ruined.

Praise God your house is okay!! I am so happy because I know it could have been a lot worse. Thank the Lord that you could stay with your parents. I know they are glad to have you! Keep us posted.

I am so glad to hear that everything is o.k! What a praise report! Even those little kitties are o.k. We've been praying for a good report and now we'll pray that everything will be back to normal in Beaumont very soon. God is good!

I third the praises to God that Lori and Aaron's house is OK!! It is such a cozy house and fits them just right....I do believe God has angels posted around it...until they are finished with it and its time to move on. I've enjoyed spending this extra time with you guys. God orders our steps so even in this trying time He has blessed beyond words.
