What's to like about Ike?

Here comes Ike.

At about 100 miles inland, we've been told to not flee from the water but to hide from the wind. So we'll be hiding from Ike tonight. And hoping the winds don't blow us away. And expecting to be without power for awhile.

It was a beautiful morning. You would never have guessed there was a monster storm in the gulf laying in wait.

I've got a scrappy quilt to bind. That'll keep me busy when the power is out. In fact, I'm kinda happy I didn't hurry to get this done a few weeks ago for the summer scrap challenge. If I had hurried and finished it on time I wouldn't have anything to keep me busy during Ike! :)

So hopefully in a few days I'll report back that we stayed high and dry, and I'll have this completed and ready to show off.

You know the line "the calm before the storm"? I think that's what you are experiencing.

Stay safe and don't blow away.

Good to know you have a quilt to bind. I read your other blog first and left a comment saying I hoped you had a quilt to bind. Then I come here and you have! Good luck in the storm. I'll keep checking the news to see how things are going for you.

I'm glad you have something to keep you busy...maybe that will make it seem like the storm passes more quickly. Hope you all stay safe...I'll be praying for you! =)
