Bracing for Ike

Well, it doesn't look like we can avoid the full force of Hurricane Ike at this late date. There would not appear to be much of a chance that it will change direction. We are anticipating that winds will pick up significantly around 3:00 this afternoon; by nightfall they should be close to 100 miles per hour. The eye is expected to pass through Houston shortly after midnight. (Why do disasters always seem to happen under the veil of darkness?). While 100+ mph winds are not to be scoffed at, because of the immense size of the storm, flooding (and storm surge) may cause even more damage. Stay tuned...
