During the coverage of Hurricane Ike, I saw a clip where some poor, despairing business owner put a huge hand-painted sign on the side of his Galveston building and it read "Go HOME Ike, Tina's not here!"
Well, this storm is a hard headed one, Tina or no Tina, it is leaving a wake of destruction and ruin. I felt an outpouring of sympathy and stayed glued to the coverage, mainly on The Weather Channel, hoping everyone stayed safe and out of harms way...
NOW I am praying for myself ~ here in the sopping Midwest! These storms have their own purpose I am sure, but yesterday morning, at about 5am, Chicagoland became a wetland at Ike's mercy!

It started with typical rain and has steadily intensified. Now, as we go along today, Ike remains relentless, still punching at our lowlands which are flooding fast.
Drips have turned to pouring which have turned to puddles that have formed in eveyones' homes that I have spoken with today. It is seeping in whatever way it can!
I am considering turning my basement into a wading pool Thanks Ike!
...You REALLY suck.
Just thought I'd share that with you ~ Happy Mopping Everyone!
