Look at the size of this hurricane! It takes up almost the whole Gulf!
Well, Ike is on his way and Houston and the coastal cities have been evacuated. It's supposed to be a big one folks! You'd think being in the northern part of the state and 5+ hours away from the coast, we wouldn't have to worry much in Dallas. But, I've heard a wide range of scenarios, from heavy rain and wind to hurricane strength winds and 6" of rain in a short amount of time. (thats A LOT of rain) Hopefully no tornadoes will head my way =)
Wish us luck and keep everyone in your prayers.
