Everyone I've talked to is staying in their homes and they aren't calling for an evacuation of our area so we're staying too. The only thing on my mind today - get ready. Ike is definitely on its way here. I got the last of our supplies this morning (geez the grocery store was packed!!) and I've been getting things ready around the house. My parents and brothers will come over to our place because we're further north than they are. Mr. Z will get home at any minute now and will take care of the outside stuff. Since the hurricane will make landfall around midnight tomorrow, we're kind of expecting to spend the night in our master bathroom/walk-in closet (the safest place of our house) - who knows. Anyway... I hope everyone will be ok. Please keep us in your thoughts. I may be twittering a bit during this whole thing.
Here's what today looks like. Calm before the storm.
See you on the other side!
