I’ve been so busy this week with work, writing and all the normal stuff that bogs down our everyday life, that I hadn’t been paying much attention to Hurricane Ike and the major threat it poses to residents of eastern Texas.
A report last night from CNN.com said that single-family homes along the coast of Texas face “certain death” depending on where they are and where Ike comes on shore. Yikes.
I know our very own Jason lives in Austin, but according to the projected path, he looks to be safely to the west of it. But my in-laws live in Jefferson, up in the northeast corner (east of Dallas) and it’s expected to turn right for them and retain a lot of strength when it gets there.
Ike is supposed to make landfall tomorrow morning (Saturday) and our thoughts/prayers are with those of you in eastern Texas. I hope you can make it through safely and that this thing doesn’t end up being another disastrous storm.
