Ike is a 4 letter word....

I live in Brazoria county, which got issued a mandatory evacuation order at 10 tonight. Course, I will be leaving my house to head to my station as we're expecting to be activated.... meaning 12 hr shifts until the hurricane and any after-effects are over. I did it for Rita (the one right after Katrina that nobody remembers!). I love my co-workers and think we have a great unit, but sleeping at the station on the floor and waking up and having to re-visit those horrible high-school shower scenes in the women's locker room are not my ideas of a hurricane party!

I'll know more tomorrow by midday. I already called my supervisors and they said they had not gotten any orders but to expect it. One of my supervisors is trekking her kids to her in-laws in LA tonight to be back for a possible activation... Funny, huh? But, LA will be spared for this one hopefully.

I actually visited the downfall of society (aka WalMart) tonight and stocked up. Some for my honey who will be leaving our town for higher/northern parts and half for me to take to the station. All non-perishable, easy to eat stuffs. Now my main concern is my Copaxone... we have a fridge to store it in and our station should go to generator power if we lose it, but it's still on my mind. I'm sure I'll be fine... See you on the dirty side!!

I'm in Corpus Christi for a treatment for my MS. We chose this week to AVOID Gustov. Ike was supposed to stay in the Atlantic! They thought Corpus was going to take a direct hit until it turned more east. BE SAFE!!!
