Well, I'm home today, school was called off because of hurricane Ike. It hasn't started yet. In Galveston the water has already come up over the sea wall and the end of the island that doesn't have a sea wall is flooding already. Crazy and the outer bands of the storm haven't even arrived!
We are at home. Brett (it is Friday and he does rock!) went to help our older neighbor with some plywood cutting. (They asked him to make "a" cut). Hey was there for over 2 hours and they got all of their windows coverd with plywood. No complaining from my man. That's why he's awesome.
We took everthing out of our backyard and put it in the garage and we are taking the screens off the windows so we don't have to replace them. We are expecting winds between 60-70 mph for 12 hours straight with gusts between 70-90 mph. I can't really imagine thatWe think the worst thing we'll experience will be losing power. Yuck. But, it is a lot better that what we are seeing on the news.
Okay so what did I do today? Well, I went out to get some hurricane supplies. At Michaels. Hee hee. I got some things to work on for the craft fairs coming up and I got Brett a model. He decided that he is going to start being crafty too. :) What a man.
So, maybe I'll made some wonderful things, until we lose electricity! So, this is us, home for the weekend.
Say a prayer for us in Texas! I'll keep you posed!
