Ike visited us over night last night with a bit of wind and some rain, sometimes heavy but mostly not too bad considering what others had gotten. Apparently the worst of the rain went north of us. We're very thankful for that!
In the rv-dreams chatroom we've heard from a lot of the people from Texas and all of them seem to have had some type of damage but all are ok, that's the main thing!
When I got back from my walk this morning Shonagh and Dave were just on their way out so I asked if they had any water hoses for sale in the office. Turns out all we needed was a washer which he did have so he put that in and saved us a trip out for a new hose. I love it when things happen like that!
Today I got the laundry ready. Since there is no laundry here at the campground, I headed into Carleton Place to do it there around noon when I hoped it wouldn't be so busy. As it turned out it was a pretty good time to be there. After that I stopped for a few groceries, then went to the library. My sister kept me in books when I was in Lindsay but I'm on the last one now so I needed to stock up!
I came home, put everything away and tried to have a nap but didn't seem to be able to sleep although I felt tired so I read for a while.
We had a few showers today but also a bit of sun when I was in Carleton Place so Ike didn't do much damage here, thank goodness. I feel so sorry for the people that it has affected with loss of lives, damage to homes and no power for long periods. I can't imagine how difficult that must be.
I didn't take any photos today so I'm featuring a photo that Gordon took of the Scugog River while we were in Lindsay.
