Hurricane Ike is Coming Right At Us!
I returned to Houston yesterday morning only to find out the hurricane is headed our way. I made the decision to stay at the farm. I was suppose to drive to Dallas to cover the first horse show of the season for the magazine. I thought that I might just go for the Thursday and Friday classes, but was too worried that if Houston activated the counter flow lanes on the highways, I would have a difficult, if not almost impossible time getting back. I know I made the right choice. We have a complete weather station at our farm and are already having wind speeds of 25 MPH. I cannot imagine how high they are going to get when the eye passes over us in about 18 hours. I will update you as often as I can - and as long as I have power. Please keep us in your prayers.
