Watching Ike

September 7th, 2008 · 2 Comments

After anxiously watching Gustav last weekend, we were fortunate enough to avoid much of any repercussions beyond a couple hours of mild wind storms and a couple days of constant drizzle (enough to turn my pool green  *sigh*).  But now our eyes are back on the ocean…this time watching Ike.  I’m anxiously watching to see how he fairs as he hits the Gulf and what direction he will turn.  The last “guesstimation” I saw had him heading in our general direction; however, every meteorolgist I’ve seen so far has said that really it’s all still a guess until he actually makes it into the Gulf.

I saw were some of the southern Louisiana residents are just now heading home with this uncertainty of will they even get to stay there long?   Also because Gustav did not cause the damage that was predicted, officials are worried that this time if Ike heads their way, people may choose not to evacuate.

I’m fortunate enough to live far enough inland that I’m not sure that any hurricane would cause us to evacuate, but we still do have the potential to have lots and lots of wind and rain damage.  Looks like it will be hitting wherever it is headed Thursday and Friday.  Keep everyone that lives in the Gulf on your mind and in your prayers.  This is a very active hurricane season that seems we’ll have no choice but to watch closely.

    Thanks so much for the thoughts. We are preparing today. I’ll post back as soon as electricity is restored (I have no doubt we will lose it for a while).
