    Looks like that little bugger is headed right towards where I live. It could hit us head on or 300 miles north or 300 miles south.

    At the very least we will get tons of rain and tons more mosquitos than we already have. We haven't been able to go on our nightly walk because we get eaten alive by those little guys.

    I hope Ike isn't a Cat 3 by the time he hits land. I also hope the change in air pressure doesn't cause me to go into labor early!

      Oh yuck Martha!!!

      I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Do you have somewhere to go if you have to evacuate?

        I'm not familiar with hurricanes...how far in advance do they know if it will go north or south of you? Or do you just know when it actually hits? I hope it isn't too bad!

            I live in Houston and we're worried it will come this way. I hope it doesn't, a coworker is actually supposed to get married this weekend!

              I have my fingers crossed for you Martha, as well as everyone else that has, may & will be affected my Ike! These storms are never nice to deal with, and I too hope that it is not very strong when it does hit the mainland.
              Do you have somewhere to go if you have to leave?

                    Martha I'm right with you! I live in San Antonio and we usually NEVER have to worry about this stuff!
                    What's going on??

                      I actually live in Corpus now....actually 35 minutes south of Corpus.

                      I could always go to San Antonio but I don't even know if that will be a good option. We probably wont leave. My parents are here and I know they wont leave, so we will stay with them.

                      I am not sure when exactly it is they will know when it's gonna hit...Normally I wouldn't care if it came here (I mean, I would, but I have already been through a few) but I so do not want to deliver now.
