Odd days.

A week later and Hurricane Ike's presence still lingers. We personally fared well -no damage and adequate supplies. We were fortunate and grateful - many of our neighbors were not so lucky.

Thoughts and prayers with them all.

Mother Nature is in a mood.

This is a picture of how the weekend is shaping up for us in Houston (and the entire Gulf of Mexico coastal population).

Fun times.

Seriously, the storm is still about 5 hours from landfall and already the wind is beginning to rage (not quite howls yet - but close).

We're as prepped as we're going to get and now we are just sitting here waiting for the power to go out.

It's a good thing I can crochet by the warm flourescent glare of my beloved Coleman lantern.

Here's hoping for a safe siege with no body count.

Safe passage, everybody.
