Martha - I've been thinking about you guys. How is the weather now? I didn't realize that it was the pressure change that might cause pre-term labor. Make sense. I thought you just had a feeling you might go into early labor. How are you feeling?

I'll keep in contact....looks like it's going to hit above us now...yay for us, boo for them.

 

I am feeling good right now...nothing going on. We bought a crapton of water and food we can eat just in case we lose power....then my mom came home with a generator! ha! I am glad we are staying with my parents right now...I feel like I have to take care of them, even though they are in better "condition" than I am!

i just looked at the new projected path. I hope it loses strength because it's heading right for my family.

Oh this hurricane sucks!

 

Martha - I'm glad you are feeling ok right now. I'm sure your parents are glad you guys are there with them. I think the food, water and generator is a great idea. You can never be too prepared.

 

Morgan - I'm so sorry to hear it's heading towards your family. Are you in contact with them? Have they had to evacuate?

 

Funny story....well not really funny but kinda. Our boss lives in Houston and is in our Dallas office Mon-Thur. Well, he is at home right now (in Houston) TAPEING up his windows. Uuummm hello....tape? Seriously? What is he thinking? They're saying Houston may only get like 80mph winds - which is definitely something your windows can handle - but tape? He cracks me up!!

they have not had to evacuate their town. my mom doesn't evacuate even if it's advised. She'd only do it if its mandatory. a few years ago when rita hit, the evacuation was the worst part. also, there was a time she didn't evacuate & a tornado hit where she would have gone. something similar happened to mike's parents.

the area we live in doesn't flood. my town had a huge flood in 98 & our house was fine.

I always hope for it to lose power. I know people all along the coast so there isn't anywhere better for it to go.

my family is prepared. we've been through many hurricanes. we still get nervous though.

Martha - I am glad to hear that you won't be getting the worst of it anymore, but I do feel bad for those who will be getting it.

 

Morgan - That really sucks that it is heading straight for your family, but I am glad to hear that they are ready for it. My thoughts are with everyone that will be affected by the hurricane. Lets hope it loses strength and doesn't cause very much damage. Everyone keep us posted on how you and your families are doing!

my mom said it's heading more towards mike's family (near galveston). they are only having people evacuate that live in low-lying areas. my aunt & cousin have evacuated.

 

everyone is ready for the storm. now it's just waiting & hoping it's not a bad one.

I can't imagine how scary that must be and the unknown of what will come. Sounds like they are all well prepared though and that's all you can do!

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
