Hurricanes - Ugh!
Hey everyone! I've been gone for about a week now. I went with my mom to visit my grandma in Nebraska since she isn't doing well. The day after I left, my city was evacuated for hurricane Ike. We're still not allowed to go home. So I'm staying at my mom's with my husband, my 2 cats, my 2 dogs, my friend, her cat, and my mom's 2 dogs! I don't have much time to myself!! I've heard our house is fine, just lots of debris to clean up. My husband is actually driving there now to empty out the fridge and come back. They said we should have power by October 6th I think it was. We have sewer back. Our water has to be boiled and it also has a large salt content in it because of the storm surge. School is cancelled indefinitely. I haven't heard how my campus is yet, but there are disaster recovery teams checking them out now. We've already missed 2 days for Gustav. As of Friday, we'll have missed 9 days of school and only gone 10 days! What a crazy start to the year!
