Well we are about 30 miles from where they are predicting Hurricane Ike to hit on the gulf coast. We are in the process of boarding up, gathering water, food and flashlights. Please pray for us and for all of those that are in the path of this Category 3 hurricane. The last cat 3 hurricane to hit here was Celia, back in the 70's and it devastated many areas! We should be safe here, our house was built to withstand this type of weather ( it is my husbands, grandmothers house) It is cement, and I feel safe staying here. We just have a lot farm equipment and all that we can not go off a leave. Unfortunately, looters take there toll, as i am sure you have seen after Katrina. So, keep us in your prayers, and pray that we don't loose our electricity for too long! I will try to keep you guys updated, maybe even post a freebie or two to keep me busy till it hits! But right now, we have to prepare. His, Teri
*** Update*** they are saying that Ike should go in somewhere to the north of us now, as a Category 4 which is a HUGE hurricane. Although I am happy we may be spared the brunt of the storm, we are by no means out of danger, but we need to pray for those who will be in the hardest hit areas, no matter where Ike comes ashore. We are almost finished boarding up ( we have like 66 windows! ) and have been to the store and have all of our things necessary for loss of electricity. But its dark and kinda errie! I will keep you posted on the latest news. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
So here is a little something for you to enjoy in the mean time! Just click on the preview! Keep your eyes out for the "woof" its coming!
