In the Houston paper this morning the headline said people were getting storm warning fatigue. Early this morning they had Hurricane Ike heading right for Houston, making landfall sometime on Saturday. As of 5 PM today, they have it making landfall at Corpus Christi Texas which is about 100 miles from here. We'll probably still get a good blow here but I wouldn't expect to evacuate. But we're going to be on pins and needles until probably Wednesday. By then the storm will be 3 days out and predictions from that point on a pretty good.
As a consequence of all this, my blog will probably be dark for a few days. I'll try to make a quick post if we have to bug out. Please keep everyone on the Texas coast in your prayers. It my not hit my town, it's going to hit somebody's. And of course don't forget about the folks in Cuba and Haiti who are and already have been hit pretty bad.
