Texas gals-In Ike's path?
Hey all you Texans. Any of you in Ike's projected path?? We (in SW FLA) had some of the outer feeder bands yesterday am. We are just living with the hurricane shutters up these days. Can't wait to sell this house and move back north to the land of snow storms! At least your house is still intact after those. Hope you're all safely out of the way.

We live in an eastern suburb of Dallas and we're expecting wind and rain this weekend. My ils live in Houston and they are not willing to leave, so I'm holding my breath that all turns out ok.

I live in North tx, but we have had a cold front and lots of rain from the storm. We are in a Flash Flood watch now. It is just really nasty outside. My aunt lives in Houston but they are on vacation in New Mexico. They were going home on Saturday, but probably they will be staying in our area for a bit now.

PICTURE: Aubrey in her cute cat outfit. If you look you can see how her right foot turns in. She walks that way as well. It is not as exaggerated in the morning's but gets worse in the evenings. This was after her nap.
I live near Ft Worth and last I heard we are supposed to get high winds, heavy rains, tornados are possible. I bet it is a lazy indoors kind of weekend here!

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. My entire family lives in Texas (we moved to MS when my dad's job was transferred), anyway I hope you all do well through the storm. We got some storm surge off of Ike and the entire southern part of our county is completely flooded. Update when you can so we know you are all okay! -Liz
