Thanking someone!

It's 4:54 a.m. I woke up a little bit ago b/c I heard the sound of plastic tarps ripping in the wind. So I went outside to check it out. The first thing I notice is an extension cord plugged into my porch outlet, hmmm. So I walk out to see where it leads and it is going into my next door neighbors window? That's weird. So I look around some more and realize that we are one of few on our street with power! So then I walk to the back of the house and see the front of the neighborhood is pitch dark! Then I walked down our street and see the whole back of the neighborhood is dark as well! I know it sounds really weird, but we're all on separate grids.
I am so thankful right now!
I figured I'd post this now, just in case. I hope I'm not jinxing myself!
I can't believe we're getting this strong of wind from Hurricane Ike. It's really bad out there. I'd say as windy as Hurricane Gustav was to begin with.
Ok, going back to sleep. Will update more later if possible!
