Hurricane Ike – Yikes

Ok. I am conflicted.

On one hand, I am scared to death of natural disasters. On the other hand, I am also pretty complacent because…hello, I’ve never been through one. Unless you count the Big Chill ’98 or whatever happened many years ago in San Antonio. Hey, school was cancelled – who really cares?

But as I stopped for my weekly starbucks at Kroger this morning, I started to get slightly worried, many thoughts running through my head. Should I have a cart full of 80 cases of water also?? Why are there no more batteries? Shoot, my dogs have to eat. Why are there so many people here??? If we lose electricity will there be enough light to read my books??? And most importantly…if they cancel work on my day off…can I stay home on Monday?????

And let’s not forget that Maggie stared up at the sky for a good 10-15 minutes this morning while I was getting ready for work.

Animals. They know things.

I guess I will be going to HEB at lunch.

Stay safe…be smart…and weather the hurricane!
