Closer to meeting Ike

All is still relatively calm here. Just woke up to a breezy morning with lots of high clouds. This time tomorrow we will be in for a lot of wind and rain. Now if if it jumps to the east like Hurricane Rita did, we will just have wind. We didn't even get a drop of rain from that, at least the people who stayed said that. We have our 72 hour kits out, everything is picked up and we are just waiting for who knows what. For those of you who are watching the news, they like to scare people so take everything they say with a grain of salt. Every time I turn on the national news or the Internet you think we were all going to be washed away. The local news is a little more down to earth but you don't get that. If you don't here from us tomorrow don't be alarmed as there probably will be power outages.

Well, I will definitely say the news makes it sound pretty scary. You have been in our prayers here (meow). I hope it goes away quick! Good luck and I can't wait to hear from you!

Here are 3 headlines from the Internet:
"Texans staring into the barrel of a gun"
"Certain death- Ike pushes sea into Galveston"
"Dire warning as Ike approaches."

People are mowing their yards right now-I did mine yesterday.
