Well we left

Apparently Hurricane Ike never got the memo to miss Texas and has Houston in his cross hairs. Each day it keeps shifting further and further east but Houston is going to get slammed either way. Right now, the ocean has reached the top of the seawall in Galveston and the hurricane is still several hours away from making landfall.

Britt, the boys and I left yesterday morning. We didn't have a mandatory evacuation for our zip code but we left anyways. I didn't want to put the boys through the stress of 80-100 mph winds, no electricity and possible tornadoes. I can't keep them safe from windows breaking, etc, so I left. We're in Austin with family and truthfully I'm a little bored. I wish I hadn't left but I'm glad I did. There are lots of Houstonians here that we've seen and we know that we'll be able to go home soon.

For those reading this, please pray that Houston isn't demolished and that nobody is killed. I want to go home and I want a home to go home to.
