Is anyone here from Texas in the path of Hurricane Ike? I hope you can
get evacuated before it makes landfall. Amanda...Tammy?

Re: Hurricane Ike?
HI!

Well, I am not even in the country at the moment.  I am in Kazakhstan
for work.  I did get a phone call through to my DH.  The good news is
everyone he has spoken with is fine and not hurt. All family is fine.
The bad news is we know of a few people that stayed on Galveston
Island and haven't heard from them (last time I called the my DH was
2:30 pm Houston time).  More bad news on the home front is the
electricity is out, shingles are off the roof, the fence is down and
the big tree in the back yard is on the master bath roof.  The roof
structure held so far but DH wasn't sure if the was damage to the roof
as far as leaking is concerned.

Where Amanda's lives was under mandatory evacuation.  I am positive
she is with her DH's relatives in Huntsville and should be fine.  I
can not image her staying because of her cutie pie little girl BUT I
haven't spoken with her yet.  I plan to call soon.  I just hate to
call cell phones now since who knows how long people will be with out
electricity.    I did see a picture of a freeway exit close to
Amanda's house and it was under LOTS of water.  We will keep Amanda
and her family in our prayers.

This storm cause major damage over a very wide area.  Very sad!  I
just hope the death count does not rise!

Thank goodness! I am so relieved to hear that you and your DH are OK.
our house is still standing and that is also a good thing. I will keep
Amanda and her family in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that we hear
that she is OK soon! Please let me know if there is anything that you
guys need that I can have sent over to you.  The airports in Houston
were closed yesterday, when are you planning on going home?

Big hugs and please tell your DH to be very careful when he is out an
about!

Re: Hurricane Ike?
It is good to hear your family is safe! I hope your friends at
Galveston Island are fine as well. Amanda and your friends will be in
my thoughts. Hopefully your roof damage will not be to bad and can be
easily repaired.

Re: Hurricane Ike?
Glad you were able to talk to your DH and know he is safe.
I'm sure Amanda evacuated, especially with a little one and we'll hear from  
her soon. I had already checked her blog, but it has not been updated since  
Wednesday.
We got the winds starting this morning here in Indiana. The Boy Scouts had  
packed up early and headed home from their camping weekend to beat the wind  
advisory.
We were without power for 6 hours today, got it back on a little while ago.  
There are still lots of trees down and roads blocked. We picked up shingles  
all over our yard. Thank goodness the roofers are suppose to be here next  
week to put our new roof on.
Friends of mine in two different small towns here in the county are still  
without power and may not get it until sometime tomorrow.  They are already  
talking about canceling school tomorrow due to the damage. Course it's  
nothing compared to what the people in Texas are going through.

Thanks for checking in with  us Tammy. We were wondering about you,
and Amanda! I hope she doesnt come back home to very much damage.
Thank God  you all didnt  have to go through it. Keep us updated!

  We had wind and rain today from the same storm. You'd think our
youth football league would cancel  the games for bad weather...NOPE!
Those poor kids had to play in it. We had about 3" of rain dumped at
one time in about half an hour, then more rain for a few more hours.
The parking lot (a grass field)  had to be blocked off by order of the
mayor, because it was too muddy and cars would ruin the park grass if
driven on it.
   I felt kind of  bad for the fans who brought their expensive fold
out tent awnings hours before the game and set them up to protect them
from the rain while watching the games, only to have the 30 mph
driving winds blow them down to  the end of the field where they lay
twisted and tangled and ruined. It finally stopped raining in time for
our game, but the wind was still fierce.

Re: Hurricane Ike?
I hope that you are safe and sound at home by now and everything sorted!

Hope all others affected have been able to go on with their normal day to  
day lives too.

Re: Hurricane Ike?
Hello,

Good news!  Amanda and family are fine.  They did evacuate to her in-
laws house.  They are without power up there also.  She was able to
speak with her neighbor and her house is fine.  There is a gas
shortage so they are running the generators sparingly so she won't
have access to the internet until the power is back on.

Re: Hurricane Ike?
Thanks Tammy for the update. Great news to hear.

Re: Hurricane Ike?
So good to know you and Amanda are okay.
We hardly got any rain here in San Antonio.

Re: Hurricane Ike?
Hi, Jacqui.

My Mom actually complained about not getting rain.  LOL.  I told her
not to tell my husband that.  She lives in Victoria and they are
behind in rain fall (as is everyone else). ;o)

Re: Hurricane Ike?
Hey everyone!!  We got power back yesterday and were able to go home.
We did evacuate, there's no way I was staying with Alyssa at the
house, besides too many people would have beaten me if I tried..lol!
We got some pretty bad rain and wind in Huntsville and my inlaws lost
some trees in the pasture.  Our house is fine, no damages, just some
panels in our fence blown over.  I am very grateful because it could
have been much worse.  Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts.  I am
thankful to have such good friends in this time.


Hugs,

Amanda

Re: Hurricane Ike?


Glad to hear from you Amanda, and that you are all back home safe! We
were worried about you!
Linda

Re: Hurricane Ike?
I know!!  That's why we decided to leave and not chance it.  I am very
thankful that's all we have to deal with.  I have heard too many other
horror stories from friends and on the news.  God really looked out
for us!

Thanks again for all the thoughts....now if I can just get my tv and
internet back at home.

Amanda
