Evacuation

Just wanted to let everyone know that we have evacuated. We are running from Ike. Actually, we are in the mandatory evacuation area for Harris County, and yesterday afternoon, we made the decision to leave (thanks for the tip Neal and Melinda!!!!) We are in a storm surge area...of course, my sister and her new baby are even closer to the Gulf area than we are. So we're off!

I've led my people of out the danger zone!! I feel like Moses!! LOL Grandma, disabled hubby, two adult children, a 12 year old, my sister and her baby. One grandma chose to stay in town with the dogs. But, she is going to her church. Dear Hubby can't be in the heat, so there was no way we could stay regardless.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments. I'm so glad that you understand me!!! And, don't worry, I did bring my hand piecing and quilting stuff, so I'm going to be ok!! LOL We packed some air mattresses and such, so I did grab a couple of my quilts to take with us....hey, might as well save a couple! Of course, I'm not thinking about what I've left behind.....

Please pray for my hubby, changes are difficult for him. Thanks Bloggy Friends!!!

Happy Quilting and Evacuating!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so proud you didn't have to do the whole plague thing before you were able to lead your people out. You have your Aaron (Erin) to support your arms if need be, but I hope you don't have to divide anything.
Love you

I wondered if you would have to go. My parents left Palacios yesterday afternoon headed to Atlanta. That Ike is unbelievable. -- Michele
