See the star I added? That's where my house is...in the heart of Friendswood, Texas. Just outside Houston. 32 miles inland from the gulf. Of Mexico. In the direct path (this morning) of Ike. I don't like Ike. But, can I call 'em or what? Thursday and Friday off from school! We are staying put. We are about 30 seconds from the church, and that will be our shelter if we need it. If we were going to fly out, we should have already done so, and I'd rather brave the storm than the traffic! We have friends and family that are staying,too.
On the upside, Southwest Airlines did cancel Todd's trip tomorrow, so he will be coming home tonight after all.
So, I am off to remove objects from the yard that could take flight, fill the water drum with clean water, check my supplies, get the 72 hour kits out and ready. Then, I will start a thorough cleaning of the house. I want it clean if Ike's gonna come through and destroy it! hmmm...maybe my remodel will be done, sooner than later! ;0)
