A Monster in Our Midst

Well folks it looks like us Texans are looking down the barrel of a gun again. We recently dodged a bullet by the name of Gustav and now Ike is a knockin’. In the past we never worried much about hurricanes. It seemed each time one entered the Gulf of Mexico a cool front would come to the rescue from the northwest and push it away from us. This went on for years and we became complacent. Hurricane season was not taken seriously until Rita bit us in 2005. Since then every time the word “hurricane” comes up you get everybody’s attention. We’ve been lucky since then and now we’re facing another monster and once again our behinds are puckering. It will be making landfall sometime this weekend, but even the professionals do not know exactly where. We fully expect to be evacuated before then hoping to return to find our homes still intact. It’s not that I wish this thing on someone else, but I hope once again we dodge another bullet. Hope to be posting good news on our return.
