Please be safe, evacuate if warranted and know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I was just reading about this on cnn's website- it looks pretty serious. The photo of people evacuating looks like a nightmare and they expect Ike to hit as a category 3, but it says there is a 25% chance that it will be downgraded to a category 2 by the time it hits. That is still a pretty threatening hurricane.
So, I second TM- stay safe and please don't try to risk it! Many well-wishes are being sent your way!!
Absolutely, I am sending caring thoughts of support to you guys. DDD
As things are getting worse for those of you in the path of Ike. Please try and be safe.
Hopefully this Hurricane slows down in speed...
Thinking good thoughts too - stay safe in the wake of Ike. I have family in Houston and Corpus and am praying everyone will get through OK.
Praying and holding good thoughts for the people on the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast.
Thank you all. We need your prayers; especially those closest to the Gulf.
There are lots of weather links at http://www.bobbybates.org/emergencyinfo.html if anybody is doing any tracking.
Be careful, evacuate if they tell you too, and stay safe. Prayers being said for all those in the path of this storm.
Sending prayers. Stay safe. Let us know you're safe when you can.
Saying prayers and holding good thoughts that all of you in the path of Ike are safe and sound. As others have advised, if they tell you to evacuate, please pack up and go.
Check in when you can to let us know how you're faring.
Gosh the storm surge is going to be 25 ft plus, prayers to all those who chose to stay!
Prayers...hope everyone who lives in that area got out.
Sending prayers...please stay safe, be careful, and let us know how you're doing.
Adding in more prayers.
We made it through safely.
We lost several trees and are without power, but are otherwise in good shape. We were very, very fortunate.
We are being told it will be 2 to 4 weeks before power is restored. We have a generator, but ability to get on the board may be sporadic until we regain power.
Thanks for the well wishes.
That's good to hear, Sheila- well, considering how bad it could have been. The photos I see on tthe news leave me worried about all those in that live in that area. Even people who evacuated are going to have a tough time getting things back in order. How do you get fuel for the generator under these circumstances?
We evacuated on Thurs. from Houston, Clear Lake, to San Antonio. We are still in SA as we have no power, though feel lucky. Our subdivision is three miles from the Hilton you are seeing on CNN. It was forecasted to be right in the middle of the storm surge from Galveston Bay and I just knew our house would be gone! As it turned out, the storm moved just a tad east and spared our whole subdivision! We haven't gone home yet as I said because of no power, but we understand our fence is down and no other major damage. We don't know about windows yet. I'll check in once we get home. Thanks for all your support....it worked!!
I forgot to add...no school until further notice....AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!
