Take A Hike, Ike!

Thursday, September 11, 2008

Hey, guys! Here we go again! Hurricane Ike is upon us so take care of what you need to and take care yourselves and your family most of all. If you’re evacuating, be careful getting to your destinations; but if you’re staying, make sure you have enough food, water and supply for a week. Let’s do our best to weather the storm, and we shall ride again soon after this is all blown over.–Lorenzo

    Ike is a powerful storm and the Florida Keys got only a minor taste of the power. Winds here are still blowing in the twenties as Ike sucks the air out of the entire Gulf, and if I were anywhere between Galveston and Corpus Christi I’d be long gone. Category Three would be bad enough but a landfall Category Four ought to make history. Good luck and I’m glad I’m out of this one.

    Yes, conchscooter, and I did see your dramatic photos of Hurricane Ike from the Keys earlier. Isn’t it a wonder that men continue to do battle with Mother Nature’s fury every year with little victory but never refuse to back down? You would think, if human beings were really smart, we would have all moved farther inland long ago; yet just the opposite happens and we move closer and closer to the edge of the sea. Most of us just won’t take no for an answer, I guess. And I would like to add one thing, that is, with all the meteorological expertise, archival records, satellites, and powerful weather computers, no one has yet been able to pin-point the exact landfall of any hurricane ahead of time. As a consequence of this constant failure, the rest of us are left to our own best judgment; otherwise, a mass panic.

    Someone better get Jim Cantore out of Galveston Island before it’s too late!

    We will be up at Toledo, close to Many La. , at Dewetta’s sister’s house till the lights come back on, about two weeks. I’m thinking about driving back to Port Neches, and get my scoot so I’ll have something to do besides sitting and watching TV, drinking beer, and eating BBQ Ribs. My Bro-in-law makes the best. mmmm. We’ll see ya when life gets back to normal…..what ever that is!
    Hope all came through the storm OK.

    Hope you are all safe. That was a terrible hurricane and being from Florida we feel a connection with all of you.

    I’m back, just barely. There’s so much wide-spread damage across this area, it would take some time and a lotta effort to rebuild; yet I’m confident that we will come back stronger.

    Thank you all for showing the love and updating your where-about. I will try to update y’all with a little more info soon.–Lorenzo

    I hope everyone is okay. If ya’ll need anything, please let me know. We made it through okay in Houston. Have some damage, but nothing major. 50% of the city is still without power.

    Goin’ home tomorrow. We have power.
    I stepped in a hole and twisted my ankle.
    Looks like I’ll be takin’ it easy a few more days. Really hurts, swole up. Not so bad I can’t take a little ride tomorrow evening though. Gotta Scootalate.

    Welcome back, Denny and Dewetta! So sorry to hear about the twisted ankle (sounds painful). Well, at least on “your” scooter, you can rest your feet. We will ride soon!–Lorenzo
