Well, it didn't pose much of a threat to my own self, but I am still waiting to hear from many friends...Electricity's out I expect. Several dear ones of mine were either evacuated themselves or were hosting family who was evacuated. Some still don't know how their homes are doing, although all the cats and dogs I know of are accounted for.
And I went to Galveston many times as a child; it was horrifying to see the beach was inundated, and then the boulders on the street, and the water in The Strand. It's so nice at Christmas...And there are lots of stretches of the island that were crowded with homes on Friday, but are today nearly bare. It will be a while yet before we understand how bad it was.

It brought back a lot about the one really big hurricane I was ever in. We were unprepared for it -- at the time, prediction wasn't as good, and it wasn't supposed to hit near us. I was at school. The sky was green. There were tornadoes. The school buses got us home in a couple of feet of water, and I think my parents and I were never so happy to see each other.

So overall, I feel pretty uneasy about Ike. But I am okay. Thank you very much for asking.

It is a huge disaster for so many! I just hope for the best. Just how far things will get stretched, energy, time, resources, and what not for people to get back.

personally I'm sad in a temporary way, mainly because I'm fickle. Tomorrow I'll probably feel completely different.

It's only morning, but I already feel exhausted!

Instead of the joys of a quiet, peaceful breakfast I had to enjoy the adrenaline hunt of four mischievous young gerbils who learned their jumping and climbing lessons well and escped from their terrarium and probably partied all night in my living room.

a piece of useless wisdom gained: the last one is always the most difficult to catch.

a snapshot of me: headed for the kitchen with half-closed eyes, still dreaming, but strangely aware of some unusual noise I almost stepped on one of them little fwkkers.

Mischievous young gerbils as in children?
