That is the feeling I have had going through out today. It just seems like a normal day and it has been. Except that we have been preparing for a hurricane with 75 mile per hour winds and the possibility of not having electricity.

Part of me feels like it is going to end up being a thunderstorm and all this energy and plans will be for naught. And I will celebrate if that is the case.

Part of me is scared. I don't know what to expect from high winds, what does that mean exactly? Damage will be done but to what extent, where and to whom?

I'm nervous for Sage's reaction. He does fine in thunderstorms but every time we talk about the hurricane or watch something on tv about it, he says there will be lots of rain sos we have to leave!

We're in the no turning back mode now. We are staying until the worst is over and then we'll reevaluate. The kids and I can make it a few days without electricity but if it gets too long, well, we might be rethinking our position.

Last I saw, Ike is supposed to hit tomorrow night about 9pm. I'm prepared for another ominous day tomorrow. With some rain.

And maybe a trip to Target for a few more supplies.


  1. oh man, hopefully it won't be too bad. We'll pray for you.


  2. Thinking of you ~

    I live 45 miles from Corpus Christi and the models had it hitting us early in the week so I know exactly how you feel.

    Stay safe and let us know how you are!

  3. I love you Chunk. I will be praying for you and your little sweethearts.

  4. Thinking of you and everyone in Ike's path.

  5. We are praying for you and your family to stay safe.


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
