Okay, I am reporting in. I'm scared. My hubby hates it when I say that. I guess it's because I've shown a sign of weakness.
We have been told by the State of Texas that we must have our cats under surveilance and in isolation for the next 65 days. For more information read my post titles, Drats, Cats, and bats.
1. Two cats had run out of their 3 year rabies certificate two weeks before a rabid bat showed up on our front porch. Therefore, by the state they must be isolated for 90 days.
2. We probably should have evacuated for the Hurricane Ike that is predicted to hit our Lake Livingston area with 100 mile an hour winds within the next 24 hours.
3. We cannot board our cats because of the state order. Remember my rabies post? My bat?
4. The 100 mile an hour wind will be directed directly to my house and this is the picture. Get the picture?
We have an entire wall of glass that will be hit with the direction predicted for IKE.
I have a tiny cuby hole prepared within the house that will allow us to hunker for the storm.
My husband is making me leave.
I don't want to drive north with the dog. He wants to watch out over the house and the cats.
I am scared. I don't know if I'll leave or weather the storm with him. We are going to make that call in the morning.
I just want to tell all of my AR friends and family that I will communicate as soon as I am able. If (when) our electricity goes out I will be without Internet and everything else. I have gas in my car...food in the house and a prayer on my lips.
I do pray for all the people that are in line to be hit by IKE and I thank our State for the reactions they've had in evacuating so many people that wouldn't have been able to get away.
I pray that all souls will be protected from this hurricane and all negative hits.
Please stay safe. I am thinking of all of you. I will remain in touch as I can...Later in the rain~Deb
P.S. I love you all, my friends..thank you for all the emails and calls of concern. Let's all pray for all.
