lasarina and I plan to shelter in place. We are not in an area where there is any imminent threat of flooding, shelters don’t let you bring pets, and they don’t let you bring 15-20 bottles of oxygen either.
If you want to keep up with our status throughout the storm, I would suggest you go to Twitter (http://twitter.com/home), sign up, and “follow” wyldraven (http://twitter.com/wyldraven). Since it can be updated quickly and easily via text message, I’ll still be able to provide status updates in case of power outage, at least for a while, until the cell battery dies.
I’m still hoping that Ike will follow Rita’s track, and this will once again be a non-event for Houston. I seriously doubt that though, and am planning for a rough time.
