Hunkerin' Down

I'm not sure I have heard the word "hunkering" before Ike started our way, but I guess that describes what we are doing.

Our family just got back from our camping trip and immediately had to start preparing for Ike. It's not too bad since we are already in camping mode.

Who needs electricity and running water?

Wait a minute! I DO!

Hopefully, the effects of Ike won't last too long.

We are praying for all of the people in the path. Especially, the people who are not taking this storm seriously and heeding warnings to leave.

The rain and winds have not started here yet, but are expected in the next hour or so. I think we are as ready as we can be.

We love all of our sweet family and friends that have been calling to check on us. Mimi is staying with us tonight since her house has several trees hanging over it. I'm confident we will lose electricity at some point and am not sure when we will get our electricity back.

I'll give an update when I can.

I'm liking the new look. Just think you don't have to wash the windows with this look. Hope you keep electricity for a long long time yet. Lots of love-Sue

I was hoping that this post was a sign that you guys had electricity. We got a text from the Deerings this morning reporting that all is well. We are so thankful!
