The Eye of Ike - 4:27 AM
The eye of Ike is here. I have spent the last 4 hours snoozing in and out of sleep. The wind has been coming in around 80 plus MPH constant and then gusts. Every now and then we will get a big gust that wakes me up and sounds like the roof is barely holding on. There are knocks and bangs on the windows from unknown debris.
The power finally got knocked around 1:30 AM. Right now though, it is crazy calm. No wind... No rain. Just quiet. After a quick look outside there appears to be no major damage but it is still dark.
Leaves scatter the yard with small branches. There appear to be a few small trees blown down around the neighborhood. The power/internet/Uverse have all come back on during the eye. Not sure how much longer we have of the calm.
