Hurricane Ike Strikes Ohio

The past several days have been extremely gusty in Ohio.  After hearing little talk or warning from the local meteorologist about low-level, hurricane-force winds, many in the


Southwestern Ohio region are still recovering from 70+ mph wind damage and massive power outages.  Ohio Governor, Ted Strickland, toured the Miami Valley and declared that the area has sustained unprecedented wind damage.  >

Losing power makes you realize how powerful mother nature is and what a privilege it is to have electricity.  While some in my area has been lucky to maintain electricity, we have had limited Internet access from Time Warner’s Road Runner service.  Every now and again the lights will flicker, and we find ourselves holding our breath.  It’s amazing how quickly the functionality of mobile technology loses its importance when there’s no juice.
