IKE!

Rhymes with Yike!

Making a bee-line for the Houston TX area.  Please keep my 2 nephews and BIL,SIL in your prayers.  They have not evacuated and don't plan too.  I just IM'd him and all is well (11:30pm their time) - just waiting it out safe and sound at home.

A Cat 2 storm is dangerous, but do-able.  It's those 3 and above that scare me.  This is such a large storm with a huge eye that is looking pretty ugly.

Gas jumped from $3.55 to $4.17 today!  What a rip off.  Can't they wait until the rigs are destroyed before they pillage my pockets?

On other Hurricane news, our Carolina Hurricanes signed Eric Staal for 7 more years Woooooo Hoooooo! 

Our Panthers made a beautiful game winning touchdown last Sunday.  My guy pals are going to the game this Sunday....let's hope for a win for them!  Miss T is upset she's not going.

My Yankees are doing a double on Saturday with Tampa Bay a team that is first in the East standing right now.....what's up with that?  I'll blame it on a season without Joe.  And Jeter is up for man of the year????

I was hoping to visit Yankee Stadium before the big move..........

The fact that it is 900 miles wide; I find that to be very disturbing. Hope your family made the wise choice.

That storm is huge for a Cat 2.  Hope and pray your family is ok and will be safe.  That gas going lower was just a gimmick.  Barrels were going up again last week but wow, your really did jump.  Have youself a good weekend!  HUGS Chris

Y-Ike-s to Ike.  I hope they are alright.  I, for one, am happy that Joe is here with my Dodgers, looks like we are playoff bound.  Have a good remainder of the weekend.

The Yankees should have never let Joe go......it's the Yankee organization to blame.
I am glad Joe's team is doing well, this year.  It's serves the Yankees right. ....oh well~
Feel bad for Jeter, he's my favorite~
