Flying a Kite in Ike

The kids tried to take advantage of flying a kite in almost 60 mph winds after traces of Hurricane Ike moved through Bloomington two Sundays ago. It was almost too windy to get the kite up but they eventually succeeded.

The storm also caused a number of trees to blow over, many of them onto power lines and 30,000 people were left without electricity. We were lucky to only experience the outage for about an hour but our neighbors across the street were without power and phone service for three days.

What a wonderful way to "ride out" a hurricane in the midwest...especially since it was all wind and little rain.

All your photos are great, but the middle one is very art-sy.

Glad you found your USB cable!

Looks like the wind could just about pick up Ethan!
