Seriously...Not again!!!

Life on the gulf coast...Gotta love it?!?!? I often wonder why we live where we live. My husband and I both love the mountains, love "seasons"...and HATE mosquitos and humidity. Oh well, this is where we were plopped! Of course we have the best job and friends and, I'm not gonna complain too much.

But these last couple of months have been a little tiresome. June-November is hurricane season. I've lived here all of my life and have survived several hurricanes and tropical storms. And they used to be fun...hurricane watch parties, foregoing the warnings and heading down to Galveston to watch the waves (and crazy surfers), stocking up on candles, pizza and beer (oh & water too ;)). However, with kids you have to be a little more it's hotel reservations and filling up on gas, stocking up on medicine and water (seriously this time) and watching the weather channel 24/7!

First it was Edouard...and now it's IKE. We live a little northeast of where the "Projected Path Line" is (actually where is says 2 PM Sat. is where we live)...they call that the "Dirty side" of the storm. Pray that we will be safe once again and maybe, just maybe that it fizzles out just a bit before it hits.
