Here we go again!
As I type this, Hurricane Ike is making his presence known. Ike will come ashore somewhere near Galveston in the wee hours of the morning, but we are getting already feeling the effects here. In case you haven't heard, this storm is massive---it stretches out 275 miles from the center. Right now, the wind is gusty and we are getting some squalls of rain, but nothing major. According to our local weather guy, things will deteriorate overnight and the rain will last all weekend. As a result, we have laid in a supply of movies, snack food, new puzzles, and board games. We plan to spend the weekend holed up in the house hanging out together. All in all, not a bad way to spend a weekend. As long as we don't lose the electricity!
