Hunkering Down for IKE

We're distracted from remembering 9/11 today as we prepare to hunker down in advance of Hurricane Ike. It looks like it is headed to Freeport, just southwest of the Houston area, which puts us on the storm's "dirty side."

Sugar Land is not in an evacuation zone, so we are going to stay here. It's important to leave the roads clear for those who live in storm surge areas and must leave.

Lots to do today! I won't have time to bake a Grace Solidarity Cake, so if you are so inclined, bake one for me and everyone in the path of Ike.

Just stay safe okay?!?!? You can come up here and stay. Rachel or I will happily put you up and your can make your cake here.

Take care of yourself, Jody. May God protect you all.

Jody, wishing you safety. That Ike has a mind of his own. I'm glad it's not coming so much toward Corpus, but I fear for you all in Houston and Galveston. My 23 year old son lives in northwest Houston and is ignoring it.

Prayer of protection going up right now.

I plan to bake Teh Cake for church Sunday, as part of my sermon.

I've never heard the term "dirty side" for a storm. Sounds just awful.

Prayers going up for you and yours.

Praying for you.
