I'm Not Fond Of Ike

Hurricane Ike's a comin!


We have my brother, his wife, 2 dogs and 1 cat that have evacuated to our home.  We have food, water, candles, batteries, flashlights, etc.  Today I'm doing a little traditional preparing for a hurricane baking.  I am also preparing a tornado shelter under our stairs despite what my brother, my husband and my daughter think!  I will be making banana bread and oatmeal cookies.  We are also doing the laundry so we will have plenty of clean clothes if the power goes out. 

Currently, the water is already coming up onto the island of Galveston.  The wind is picking up and it is so humid! 

Would you like to come for a visit?

We'll be praying for you Texans!
We bake and do laundry before a storm too. Seems like you've been through a storm before.
Hunker down and stay dry!

Good Luck Katrine! I'll keep you in my prayers as well. Please post again as soon as you can so we will all know you are safe.
