I don't like Hurricane Ike

As you may know, I'm from the Houston area. My power has been out since 7:30pm Friday. My parents have power, hence my appearance here for AC and internet access today.

We have a portable DVD player and it has been a godsend. When the battery dies, we just finish whatever we were watching in the Prius. Actually, when the heat gets too oppressive we head out to the Prius. I'm charging up the DVD player and my cell on my parents' electricity now, though.

I think my work opens tomorrow. I have to call a number at 6pm to confirm. Cliff is at work today. His work fed him a tuna sandwich for lunch. That's what I was planning for dinner, so I'm thinking we'll go out.

We have a curfew from 7pm to 7am. When Cliff gets off work, we need to immediately head out to look for an open restaurant or a grocery store.

We lost shingles and water leaked in the house. We also lost some siding and small sections of fence. I called AllState to file a claim. I've never had to do that before.

All in all, I don't like Ike.
