We made it Home
I had to travel to Indianapolis Sunday for a meeting and got out just as IKE was rolling in. We saw a large exit sign in the middle of I-65 Southbound in Louisville, a tree across the southbound lane north of Sellersburg and encountered a downed powerline across the Interstate as well. Indy was not hit as hard as was forecast, at least from what we saw.
On the return trip we saw lots of damage in southern Indiana, and went about fifty miles in search of restroom facilities...either no water or power outages everywhere we tried along the way. We rolled into home about 8 PM and were glad to find no damage to our home. One neighbor lost a row of about half a dozen mature pear trees broken off at about 2 feet above the ground...
