Hurricane Ike, go take a hike!

Pretty creative title, huh?

Right now I am in high gear getting ready to possibly evacuate due to hurricane Ike.

Thinking there's a possibility your house could be completely leveled is scarey. Going through your possessions and deciding what is most important to bring with you should you not be able to return to your home is overwhelming. The fact that my husband has to stay behind doesn't help either.

I will probably spend the better part of the evening trying to get organized. If you think about it could you please say a prayer for our family as well as all the families who could potentially be affected by Ike.

Right now the plan is to head to San Antonio and then possibly on to Waco or Dallas, depending on where Ike decides to go.

This is a whole new world for us.

Take care,
Julie

We're preparing, too - looks like it'll be ya'll or us - or somewhere in-between! BE SAFE!

Gosh, I know what you mean about going through possessions. Isn't that the worst? It was hardest on the kids, especially when we had to leave our daughter's beloved cat behind. And my pictures. UGH.

Stay safe! We are in this with you since it could go in either of our directions.

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Looks like we read a lot of the same ones.

We're going to head back to the Houston area tomorrow (Sunday). We heard from friends and family that our home is okay except for the fence, which we fully expected to lose and aren't too unhappy about. We needed a new one. We're very thankful that all of our family is okay. My sister in Katy has some roof damage as does our church and some of our neighbors. We're all very lucky, though.

I've enjoyed staying in "your" town! We're soaking up the AC before we leave because we may be without power for a week or two. Take care.
