I was in Chicago yesterday, so I missed the windy remnants of Hurricane Ike. I did get a ton of rain on Saturday in Chicago (estimated between 6-8 inches) which ended up flooding part of I80/I94. When I got home to Cincinnati I was saddened to see that my neighbor’s tree which provides shade for my deck had fallen down. Not much damage to our houses, but the tree pretty much blocked my back door. Spent most of the morning sawing and cutting it up.
Last I heard, over 70% of the people in Cincinnati still don’t have power. I’m half lucky. I have power at home, but don’t have power for my business.
UPDATE: Power’s back at the office. It’ll be back to work tomorrow!
