Looks like a direct hit for Galveston. We are on the far west side of Houston and this track takes it a bit to the east. Still, we expect hurricane force winds and a lot of rain.
Living in Houston as I do we’re all running in circles, spitting up nickles as Hurricane IKE approaches.
Gas lines were forming at 6:00 am as I topped off my tank. We stopped by the Kroger to pick up a few things and it was starting to get busy. My office is closing early today and will be closed tomorrow.
You can feel a bit of tension as the city gets ready.
