The storm's coming and it's a BIG one!

For those of you who don't know, Hurricane Ike is about to hit the Texas coast. Of course, this caused great panic in Austin earlier this week when we were told we would have 100 mph winds, thunderstorms and possible tornadoes spawned. Great times. I cannot tell you how excited Krista and I were to possibly squeeze ourselves and our dogs into my tiny downstairs closet in the event of a tornado. It turns out that we may now only get some rain and 35-40 mph winds. My lawn needs the rain and you won't find me complaining about that! I just have to laugh at the panic that is still over Austin. Schools had half days today, everyone seems to have left work early, HEB sold out of its water and my florist canceled my appointment for tomorrow. But my eyebrow wax is still on for the morning. That's right - beauty trumps mother nature every time! ;)
