Michael thanks for check in. All my family is safe. Visited my house, my daughters house and my sonís house yesterday. Took me an hour for me and relatives to chainsaw our way down my street to get to my house. Massive tree damage everywhere. Lost one 80 yr old magnolia that grazed my house. Canít tell if I have roof damage because itís up against the house. Lots of roof damage. Daughters house is complete loss, big pecan tree through the house, sons house damaged by high winds and a tornado. Lake Charles is a total mess. Much worse than Rita 15 years ago. But the sun shined today. Weíll get back

We had tree and plant damage, my poor banana took a lot of wind abuse, but will survive with trimming. We hunkered down in south Central Louisiana (south of Lafayette). Windows boarded up and several tornados all around us as close as 4 miles. So glad it's over.
