    I am a Texans fan in upstate New York (far away from hurricane problems).
    Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers regarding the impending strike of Hurricane Ike. Good luck, guys and gals. May you all be safe.

    Thanks!
    Houston is pretty much shutting down for the weekend. Everyone I know has gassed up, stocked up, boarded up, and has moved to what they consider safety. We're getting ready.

    Everything moveable is tied down. I'm over 100 mi from the coast, hopefully some of the sting will be gone time it gets here.

    Thanks Brickman and jgl for your well wishes. We take it to heart. I would like to share with y'all what it means to be a Texan; we'll take this on the chin, pull ourselves up by the boot straps and move on!!!

    Thanks again, guys.

    Great thread, brickman. Living in extreme south Texas, we just went through Dolly a month and a half ago. It can be a scary thing. But just stay calm and the storm will pass...H-town area is in our prayers...

    We just finished up doing all the prep work we can think of. I even vacuumed my house (probably guaranteeing that my roof will blow off), since I am not sure how long we will be without electricity.

    So I fixed a stiff Bloody Mary and am planning on taking a nap after I finish it. I have a feeling it is going to be a long night.

    Everybody stay safe and dry!!!
