Hurricane Ike certainly has a larger effect than most would think. Here in
Pittsburgh we had high winds (no rain) which ripped up many trees and roofs,
downed power lines and took out phone, electric, and cell service. As of
Monday night 100,000 households did not have power in our area. Many are
being told they won't have it until Wednesday. The irony is that many of our
electric repair trucks, parts and manpower are volunteering in Texas where
they headed out late last week.
