So Sarah just emailed to chastise me for not blogging… apparently my hubby has been blogging up a storm (no pun intended) but he is just parroting what is being said on the local news. As for me, I did not get the 24/7 weather channel gene so I have been watching what’s happening out my window and Law and Order 🙂
Clearly we still have power, water, and all the good things of life. We had a big bacon and egg breakfast (might as well use ’em up) and had to defrost dinner (got a little over zealous there). Put the fridge on max cold last night too to increase the longevity of its contents. Dropped the AC to 68 too and am freezing my butt off (as in wearing jeans and a sweatshirt) but if (optimistic) / when the power goes out, we’ll be glad we did (at least for one extra hour).
So here we are waiting… oh, did I mention our hurricane brownies?
Seriously, we are hearing and seeing bad reports from Galveston (60 miles away) and I am glad that all the family have visited and we have enjoyed the beach in 2007 and 2008 cause I think the 2008/2009 season is going to be *much* more challenging. Chris’s blog, I’m guessing, is a blow by blow of what’s happening there.
Now, I better go stir dinner or it’s gonna burn.
Reporting safe and sound and all is well in Houston Friday, September 12, 7pm.
