My Mood: Hurricane IKE- all in the path
10 yr Member
Default Hurricane IKE- all in the path

Many people in here have family & friends in the Galveston / Houston areas of Texas. Prayers are needed for those that have decided to "stick it out because we're quite a ways inland". They will still get the rain and the winds, possibly not as much flooding, but many have chosen to stay I guess.
One of these is my own brother and his family. He's northwest of Houston, has gotten food, water, and many batteries and is going to stick it out. Knowing that when power goes out, it most likely will knock out cell phone services....the waiting and not hearing anything is going to be difficult. While seeing all of the news on tv...take a moment please for a heartfelt prayer for all living in the path of Ike,


God be with you,

Marilyn

My brother and SIL live in Victoria, which is 40 miles inland. They are hunkered down for the duration of Ike.

SIL says that all the news studios have reserved all the available rooms in town, and then their people fan out along the coast.

My brother said now that they are ready, it's like sitting on the railroad tracks, waiting for the train to come.

I was able to talk with MommaD for a few minutes. She and most of her family have temporarily moved 180 miles north of Houston area.

BUT, her husband is a policeman, and had to head back for work tomorrow in Houston. She seems pretty calm about it, but keeping them in my prayers.

to everyone. Thank you for all your prayers. Dh and I just finished eating dinner and now we're ready to settle in for who knows how long. The wind has just now started to pick up a bit here.

Please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers.

Everyone please stay safe and check in when you can...

I just remembered that I have a cousin in Houston.... I don't know how to get a hold of her---I don't know her married name.

for all..
