Ike has most definitely arrived. Not sure how this is will to work out, but I'm going to try and post an update from my old Ipaq phone. That's because the power went out around 11PM and the computer is not available. There's no telling when the power will be back on. Maybe hours, or days. The storm hadn't even made it ashore yet before the power went, which seems unusual. Once the power went out, we decided to try and get some sleep before the storm really hit. That lasted for a couple of hours until the winds and noise picked up. We're in our safe area but I've looked outside a couple times. The winds are so strong our trees are leaning to the left and being buffeted around. You can hear the rain hitting the windows and it sounds like they're being sandblasted. You hear it all the time, but the rain is blowing sideways. We are hearing some strange noises that we can't figure out exactly what they are yet. We're listening to the radio and the eye of the storm is over Clear Lake, and we still apparently have hours to go before this thing is done. I'll be back when I can.

    Great to have you back. I've really missed your posting.

    Hope you and all your family come through Ike safe and sound.

    Regina - thanks as always. We made it through safe and sound. Nerves a little frayed and stir crazy after so many days in the house, but none the worse for wear. Thanks for looking out.

    Torrance - You can tell Ike Tina ain't here! He whooped up on the city like Ike was whooping her too.

    I've been on a little hiatus trying to get my head straight since my Mom passed. I'm getting there and back to blogging and will be over to check you out soon.

    Jobsanger - Hey Bud! Thanks for coming by. I've been trying to get back in the swing of things and I hope I'm there now. We made it through the storm (literally and figuratively), and I'll be over to your place to catch up on all of the politics I missed soon.
