Hurricane Ike, It's Crazy Here Again!

We went out to dinner tonight and the roads were a mess! Or more specific, the gas stations were a mess. They were packed just like they were for Hurricane Gustav and after. I guess someone heard that if Hurricane Ike hits Texas we won't get gas and the other rumor is that gas prices are going up. I don't know which is true but omg, people were freaking out.

They changed the forecast and now say we will be getting even stronger winds tomorrow, tomorrow night and Saturday! They say to expect 30-35 mph winds with 55 mph gusts! It's supposed to be similar to Hurricane Rita in 2005. We just had a lot of wind and rain, we didn't lose power but I remember our neighbors did b/c we let them plug an extension cord into our outlet on our front porch. I am just so ready for all this to be done with.

We went back to the store today. I was able to find some bologna! But they still have a long way to go before the shelves are fully stocked again.
