Remember this house? It was the only beachfront house standing in Gilchrist, Texas after Hurricane Ike.
They still don't have power, but that didn't stop the owner, Pam Adams, from sprucing it up for the holidays.
Pam's sister, Judy Hudspeth, sent in this picture of the house decorated with generator-powered Christmas lights and a tree.

Now that is the spirit! Awesome postive outlook. Judy should be commended for her spunk!
Merry Christmas Judy and family! God Bless You!
MERRY CHRISTMAS! May God bless y' all!
What a lovely sight in the middle of all that desolation. Shows you can't keep a good American down. Hope their Christmas is a good one.
Theres proof you cannot alther the will of americans. The only house standing for miles, with no power. these poeple powers their christmas decorations with a generator. This is the power of will, hope, and determination, and perhaps the very grace of God. Merry Christmas Pam Adams from Texas. Merry Christmas indeed.
What an inspriring picture of optimism against adversity. I wish them all the best in the new year.
Great picture. How are things down in Gilchrist by the way? Inquiring minds want to know
