yIKEs

We've dodged the bullet several times here in the Houston/Galveston area - but it looks like we're going to be feeling the effects of Ike whether we take a direct hit or it stays on its more southerly track to Corpus Christie. Right now it's all up in the air, depending on what the high pressure system that is steering it does. Regardless, we're preparing here in the Bay Area. We're stocked up on hurricane supplies here at the Bubba's Sis house, and ready to ride it out (no plans to evacuate at this time). School has been canceled on Friday, so we'll have all day to sit and wait on it. I'm sure the kids will be climbing the walls by sundown.

Will keep you all posted!
**Update - School has been cancelled tomorrow, too, and the track has moved closer to us. Watching and waiting.....

Hmm, so they cancelled school for Friday. I'm still not sure what I'm doing and I'm supposed to fly out tomorrow. I think I'll be able to do that. It's the flying back home on Saturday that I don't think will happen...

Well, I was right. But, at least I have enough luck that things will happen BEFORE D goes out of town. Hopefully all we get is rain.

Ike seems to be as unstable as when he and Tina were married. Stay safe!!
