Well, it looks like I'm going to meet Ike tonight or tomorrow. Hurricane Ike. I can't say I'm looking forward to it, but I'm inland enough to not have to worry about storm surges.
Since I make beer, I have quite a few stainless kegs (6) and brewing vessels (?) full of fresh water.
I'm not too worried about physical safety, as I have plenty of beer and, in case of emergency, slivo. The wee four are with my folks, who are about 20 more miles inland. The wife and I are hoping the power stays on so that the espresso machine will work.
Don't worry, though, we have a hand grinder and a cezve for Serbian coffee.
Oh, and we have a Sansa player with lots of great music, so that we don't get too board and end up with another kid in 9 months.
We are keeping our nanny, Miss Mossberg, handy. She has plenty to eat, though we hope we don't have to use her.
Even with all this, we could probably use a few prayers, even though I know a bunch of you silly Yanks don't much like us down here in Texas.
