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.....
