Okay, Now I'm Getting Nervous

The TV anchors are in full apocalypse mode, and the scary part is that they may even be right. The storm is headed right for Galveston, and after that, Alvin. This is really the pits. For the first time, I wish we'd left. If we'd done that, though, I'd be worrying about the books and the cats. At least if we're here, we can try to mitigate any damage.

By the bristling beard of Odin! You'd have left the cats behind! And the books!

May the gods be with you and Judy, my friend. Be safe.

Hey Bill, stay safe. If you decide you need to get out, you know the way to College Station. We have room beds here. We even have a cat and a supply of kitty litter.

In case of emergency, call 979-696-2614 or 979-218-2618

Thanks for the offer, Mark. We'll probably head for Judy's place in Thornton.

Brett Battles said...

Hang in there, Bill. We'll all be thinking good thoughts and hope you're spared any problems!

Gran said...

Good luck, bill to you and yours.

You and Judy are in our thoughts, Bill. If we all took deep breaths and blew eastward, do you think we could change Ike's course?

Bill Crider said...

Hey, it couldn't hurt.

And likewise with Tagged friend, Deby in Alvin, Cyber Saddle Pals, Texas Lawyer Boy, Bill Rodis and his lovely wife, Becky outside San Antonio and Anthony Tollin in San Antonio, and all the Texans and non-Texans, visiting the Lone Star State.

Let us hope, I prayed, that a kind Providence will put a speedy end to the acts of God under which we have been laboring. - Peter De Vries

Prayers and dry thoughts. Stay safe.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Terrie. Still no real sign of the storm here, but we know it's coming.

Bill, My wife and I left again for the second time in two weeks. We are waiting it out in Mississippi this time. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Well, I'm glad New Orleans was spared this time but I was hoping it would hit a lot farther south than you.

Fingers are crossed here.

You know my thoughts are with you. Remember those hills I mentioned a couple of days ago? Stay safe.

You and Judy and the cats and the books are in our thoughts and prayers today, Bill. The local ABC affiliate is running the live coverage from KHOU on their digital channel, so we're keeping up with what's going on down there. Best of luck to everybody.

We'll be thinking and praying for y'all down there. Stay safe.

Amen to all of the above.
