Yes, they do! I was just commenting on a few blogs, and the wind was coming up (and a light rain) about 15 minutes ago...and now it is pouring outside with somewhat higher winds! I am always amazed at how far-reaching the affects are from these storms! I posted this ATC and one other one on my other blog a few nights ago, but felt it fitting to post this particular one now since we are in the middle of a few of these things in a row. I am thinking if Ike is a category 3 or higher, my family and my Mom will drive to Lakeland, Florida...where we have family...and camp out a few days there. I have to work both before and after the hurricane...so as soon as I am relieved, we will head out. By Sunday I will have full tanks of gas in our cars, and get my bags packed and ready to go with a few days clothes,and my trusty laptop!
I will also take my new sketch pad, and pencil, and find something interesting to try and draw.
I already drew out a cute pic for Cactus Monday, and it is a relief to me to have it done already (I start sweating it out that I will remember or actually think of something to do). Isn't it funny the things you allow to give you stress (even though it may be such darn fun stress, cause I really do enjoy it)! LOL. I am a big nerd/weirdo!!!
Granddaugher Emily, and her Mom doing well over in Germany. Thank God.
I am laying here in bed, with lights out except for my long necked bendy Tweetybird nightlight overhead, and the light from the laptop...listening to the sound of the steady rain and wind outside. Tonight I am grateful for my roof!
