Sunday Salon: Hurricane Adventure
I've spent the last three days worrying about, anticipating, and, finally, going head on with Hurricane Ike.
We tried to decide whether to leave or stay, leave or stay. We decided to leave yesterday, but we only traveled as far as Houston. Safer than being thirty miles from the gulf, but still a hurricane adventure. Winds gusting a hundred miles an hour...falling tree limbs...rain beating on the roof and windows....
We've spent today cleaning up around my bil's house and trying to make it without power (though we were fortunate enough to have a generator).
We've had reports that our house has a hole in the roof, so we are crossing our fingers that we'll have a home when we return tomorrow.
Side note: I was happy to find that I can download books onto my Kindle even during a hurricane.
