Luckily, I got back home before the rain started here. I know I shouldn't complain, when folks in TX have such a horrible situation. Based on the tiny bit of "Ike" that we have seen, I cannot imagine what Galveston and Houston residents have been through. This is one nasty storm. You can see from the first picture that a humming bird rode out the storm on our feeder. There were actually 3 of the little birds all perched on the feeders; about the only time they've been social with one another. I think the overhang of our roof offered them a little protection, but you can see this one is all puffed up trying to stay warm.
And later today this spider appeared with it's massive web. Not to mention all the earthworms trying to flee the water. Ugh, they crawled under our garage door. And somehow one managed to get in to our foyer. Yuckyuckyuck, you should have heard me scream.
I am so glad to be home, even with all these crazy critters; I even have a a few days to make some art, yippee!! Hopefully I'll be able to share some more pictures soon.
