Ok, so Ike is almost here. Landfall is expected late tonight. Galveston is starting to flood. The wind is starting to pick up here in Katy. My wife says that the shelves in all of the local supermarkets are practically empty.
We have our emergency plan in place. Should things get desperate, we'll retreat, with our emergency supplies, to the master bathroom near the center of the house. Should they become dire, we'll retreat into the walk-in closet, just off the bathroom.
My daughter and grandchildren will be arriving soon. Interestingly, I'm a little more concerned about whetheror not they will be able to keep their cool, when the wind and rain hit, than I am about the actual effects of the hurricane. Especially when the power goes out and it gets real, real hot. But, my wife and I have had emergency training, so we should be fine.
So, here we go.
