Hurricane Ike and Other Adventures

My mom and step dad live in the Houston area and when they heard a hurricane was coming they weren't worried. They already had water on hand and went out and picked up fresh fruit and a few other essentials. Unfortunantly, power to the city is almost nonexistent. However, the police stations and hospitals have underground power lines which were not damaged. The overheard power grid took a real beating in the storm. My parents realized that the office where my step-dad runs his business had power. So they packed up the inflat-a-bed and a few essentials and spent the night there in the air conditioning. I am so grateful they had a comfortable place to stay -- they just made it a PJ party.
