I'm Not Fond Of Ike

Hurricane Ike's a comin!

Ike

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?

Okay! I do not think this sounds like fun! I am watching on tv horrified that you are there waiting for it. I don't think I would rather have a hurricane than an earthquake because the anticipation is awful. Hope you are all okay tomorrow. Please post and let us know as soon as you have power back. Love!
