Well, Hurrican Ike is headed my way for sure. I live about 40 miles north of Galveston where it will enter land. We are predicted to have 75-100 mph winds and 110+ gusts and 6-10" rain. We may not have power for several weeks. Which means no internet and no JM I will update as soon as I can, but it doesn't look good for us right now. We are all boarded up and staying put. Please just say a prayer for all the people that Ike is going to affect. I love you all and will talk to you soon.

Oh, Michelle!!! Do be careful!!! I'll be so worried about you guys, they're saying Galveston is going to see the worst of it (or that's what I hear on the news and radio). Do you have a cell phone? Does someone here have your number? When is it expected to make land-fall? Tonight-ish??

Jenn the storm will hit tonight around 1 am. We should start feeling effects as early as this evening. We are on the "bad" side of the storm.

Angie, I will text Pat (pitridge) when I can so she can update everyone.

Thanks for the prayers.

Jenn, LMAO! That made me laugh. I needed that.

I believe we will be fine in our house. It doesn't flood where I am at. I'm really just worried about winds and tornadoes. We will hide in our closet, that is the safest place in the house.

Happy to oblige, darlin! My attempts at levity aren't always funny, but I try. I'll be thinking about you, and hoping that you guys will be fine; and not huddling in your closet. Are you all stocked up; water, candles, matches, blankets, clothes, tp, canned food (dont' forget the can-opener), etc?

Good luck Michelle! We are staying put too and hiding out in the closet as well. It's the only place in the house with no windows so that's where we are going.

It doesn't flood where I'm at either so the concern is the wind, but I think we'll be okay.

I'm hoping the power isn't out for TOO long.

Please stay safe too and update as soon as you can, so that we know you are ok.
I'll be praying for both of you.

Yup, we are stocked up as well and doing last minute things so we are ready to go. I was going to start a hurricane post later on and I can keep you updated for as long as power lasts. Other than that I will update as soon as I can or if someone on here PMs me their cell number I can text and let you know how it goes.

Michelle, we will have some interesting stories for our babies about this! This is all making me glad I am not due in September! I can't imagine dealing with this if I were almost due.

I'll post some pics later of our closet setup.
