Huricane Ike: More pictures of the Aftermath - Day 2

Just walking around this morning after a massive rain shower over night, the place looks different. The trees and leaves are showing sign of dying; there is no smell as yet, but it is coming I am sure. Wait until it gets hotter and the trash is not picked up! I did see the Center Point Energy folks out and about so that is a good thing.

I've talked with my neighbors more in the past two days than in a year; mostly as I'm not usually home, so there is a good thing about this event.

A local eatery is open; the Empire Cafe and there is power at the intersection of Woodhead and Westheimer so the gas station is open and the lines are getting long.

Fence from a house is down.

Uprooted tree.

The other side of the uprooted tree.

This is the note on the dry cleaner's door.

Blocked street; I put up that tape as there is a downed power line right in the tree.

Not sure why people are still driving under this pole. I did see CenterPoint Energy on a nearby street and they said they've seen it and will get to it when the can.

The only thing holding this pole up are the wires attached to it!

Snapped right at the base.

See how low this stop light is to the taxi?

The walls have moved in quite a bit.

Those wires used to be attached; so no power for me until it is connected again :-(.
