Just to let everyone know Jayna had 4 feet of water in her home. I have helped to salvage some of her possesions. We will be working more Sunday to get more out. Hopefully her house can be salvaged. Hope all turned out well for others. Til the sky goes dark from a flood of arrows... Jeffery known as Barbarian

Just a note from your 'emergency' moderator since the real
moderators have no or limited access to email. We (Ken and
Theresa) got our power back this morning blessings for that and we have
only yard damage, a tree fell in the backyard onto our long shed that is a
storage area. Lots of broken tree tops but none on the house.
Spoke to Simonn and Tessa earlier today and they are still on generator with
minimal damage. Both Simonn and Tessa have been sick, taking meds, but doing
ok. I think that parts of their fence is down and some trees are damaged.
No telling where all this stuff in the air may have come from. So everyone take
lots of vitamin C and wash your hands regularly. We could have things floating
in the air from Mexico and even Cuba as big as this storm was. Ike did not stop
at the border for vegistation inspection.
Baron/Baroness have power but some damage to house although not major. I think
that they have already posted their conditions.
Armund and Catrien are ok and I think that I saw a post earlier about their
home with some leaks and window damage.
Scott and Dena Steele are headed back from Austin, I talked to Dena last night
and they were heading home in the morning, which was this morning.
Heard from Janna, she is ok in Bridge City.
Jeffery the Barbarian has been checking on peoples homes that he knows about
and his place made it ok in Port Neches.
Also heard that the Kingdom Chirgeon, Kroaker (sp), he and his parents did
evacuate before the storm from Galveston Seawall Blvd.
Also heard from Lady Libby and her family. They evacuated to Jones Country
site and stayed in Diagos trailor for the duration of the storm. Shawn, Tim
and Michael placed Shawns truck in the doorway of the castle to brace the door
and put cinder blocks on the other side so the door held during the storm. The
castle is still standing with no damage. They are home now in Beaumont with
power and minimal damage. they lost a wall on the wash room on the back of the
house but no major damage to the main house except for a leak over Tim's
room, that Zane brought tarps to cover. They have a tree down in the back yard
but it did not hit or damage anything.
Little Todd and family went up to the site to look around. Only about 1/6th of
the number of trees were affected as compared to damage by Rita. The big
shade oak at the bridge might have very well dodged a bullet. A little plaster
could probably help keep the bugs out also.
I heard this afternoon that Beaumont is lifting the mandatory evacuation at
6am tomorrow (Saturday), but the curfew is still from 8pm till 6am.
For anyone that hasn't seen pictures of the devastation to the beach,
rollover pass is impassible it looks like an accordion. Ferry landing is gone
and the bridge from Houston, at last I heard, is closed. There is very little
standing on crystal beach and bolivar. I saw a news reel of the Big Store
at Crystal beach and the only thing left is the roof.
We have had calls and concerns from Glenn Ahbann (sp), Aten, and the West, from
people making sure we are all ok.
Well I will leave for now and hopefully before long everyone will be back
up and running. If you have heard from anyone please let us know. I have not
heard from or know where Valencia and Charles are but they should be fine
since Charles is a tree trimmer and knows what should be done. I know there were
some notes that where posted earlier that may have more information but I have
not read all of them. When I got signed on this afternoon I had over 600 emails
and not enough time to read all of them. :) Anyway everyone stay safe and
hopefully we will all be back to normal soon.
Information on populace meeting date and place should come later from our Baron
and Baroness. Gander Mountain has been closed.
As well off as we are here, we send our prayers and thoughts to those who have
lost so much more. Anything that we have here we will share.
I am yours in service,
