We are home and waiting on Ike to hit. We have our "safe spot" ready. We will be sleeping in my bedroom closet tonight. The boys are kinda confused about it all still. We are ready. We are just hanging out for now. Watching the news. Looking out the windows and watching the wind pick up from time to time. We had 3 trees cut down today. And some major limbs cut also. Most of our family, friends, and neighbors are all in the same boat. We have all decided to just hunker down. My prays are with you all. I pray that we will all be safe. I will keep everyone posted on the outcome of this storm. **Galveston Island is already flooding. The storm surge is like no other they are reporting. The storm is not here yet and we have had no rain but the water is already coming up and over the Galveston Seawall. Wow!! We can only sit and wait to see just how much worse it will be.
