Power out at the De Jongs

The remnants of Hurricane Ike delivered very high winds (gusts up to 70mph/110km p/h) and knocked-out our power at about 5.30pm on Sunday. We have plenty of water to drink, batteries for lights and gas to cook, but with our water pump running on electricity we don't have running water at the moment. This includes our toilettes. We are one of about 300,000 without power here in North-East Ohio so it could be another 24 to 48 hours before we have power since all the additional crews were sent to Texas earlier in the weekend.

We are camping at home and try to make due with some cell phone coverage and public WiFi.
