The windstorm on Sunday left many in this area in the dark when the remnants of Hurricane Ike passed through the area. All throughout the area, trees were downed, including some over homes and cars. Several reported devastating damage to property. It's clear the cleanup efforts will take quite some time.
Happy belated birthday to Vern Huff (Sept. 12).
