We still have it. It went off for 45 minutes this morning but came back on.

I am watching the local news and they are showing video of a bayou near my house that is completely full. Luckily we are several feet up and a half a mile away in an area that didn't flood during T. S. Allison.

We still have power

We just watched a movie but it is pretty windy out, so I imagine it won't be too long. We have already had a few power dips.

No, I do not face "CERTAIN DEATH"

I stole this from a friend of mine, who got it from lovely Fox News:

We are not in any of the mandatory or voluntary evacuation area, and our neighborhood has the word "Heights" in it.

R did go for a walk a little while ago (partially to stop at Walgreens to get a few bars of soap because I realized that the sliver in our shower was the last bar in our bathroom) and checked out the bayou near our house. He says it's up, and not flowing the right way, but I'm still not worried about flooding. We're quite a ways up from it.

This is a test

Not of the emergency broadcast system but of mobile blogging. Hurricane Ike is about 30 hours away and I thought it would be interesting to see if I can Blog through it. I have already started some fridge cleanout before the power goes out, making banana bread in a bundt pan and a dozen muffin cups. I also forsee quite a bit of knitting. Stay tuned and let's keep our fingers crossed that my phone works!
