Well, it looks like Ike will spare South Florida, although we'll probably still get some crappy weather from it.
Hubby was pretty freaked out about it and for a bit there I started getting concerned.
The good thing tat came from it is that it shocked us out of our complacency. We finally got the hurricane supplies we should have gotten back in June. We now have plenty of batteries for the battery-operated fans and TV, a new cooler, freezer bags in which to freeze water, new flashlights, etc.
Oh yeah - and Spaghettios - lots of Spaghettios. Hey! That's hurricane food! And Vienna sausages...mmmm Vienna sausages. This time in addition to canned tuna, I also got canned salmon - I figured if things got really crappy and the heat was making me feel sub-human, some lovely salmon and hard boiled egg would make me feel better. Ooh - and deviled ham! Seriously, how often go you eat deviled ham?
So...a big old kiss to those who thought good thoughts for us - apparently they worked! But keep it up for a few more days just in case - thanks!
