Annie and I are OK, but it has been a long morning to say the least. And the house is OK…thank goodness.
I was woken up at 2:50am by a semi blowing its horn for like a minute so I got up and looked outside and people were running out of the building and yelling to get out. I ran downstairs and saw that the back of the building was a huge fire. So I called 911 (with a bunch of other people) and the proceeded to watch this building turn into the biggest fire I have ever seen…fire was billowing out of all 4 floors windows and people were climbing out of the fire escapes. We had to stay outside from 3am until 6am while they were fighting the fire and then there were fears that the building might collapse. I just feel so bad for the people because they are so poor to begin with and now they are sitting on the street still with red cross and they have nothing.
Our street just opened back up to traffic and it is 10am. It was seriously the biggest fire I have ever seen. I felt like we were in a movie at some points. But I wanted to let everyone know that we are OK and so is the house.

So I am sure everyone in Cincy knows what happened but for you out of town-er's, i thought I would give you an update...
It is a beautiful day tailgating for the bengals game, and then we enter the stadium...clouds roll in, but still no rain and then incredible winds start up. Apparently they were clocked at 75 mph. It was crazy windy during the entire game, but nothing to be alarmed about, until we leave the disaster of the game and walk outside for out trip home. Trees down, siding and shingles flying, the Ohio River having white caps like the ocean, and no power! We returned home to find out that we have some siding hanging on by a hair, but no further damage, other than lots of trees down. But get this...Duke is saying that people won't have power for 3-4 days!
Annie and I slept at my dad's last night because he had power because of new development and power lines being underground. Annie was lucky enough like the rest of the city for work to be cancelled. But have no fear, by some act of God my office and the Kroger data centers have backup generators, so I am here at work :( Just doesn't seem fair, no does it.
Hope Ike didn't hit anyone else...it really put a true hurricane in perspective cinsidering we only had partial winds. Imagine double the wind plus the rain...not fun!!
