    My version of a Totally Sque'd reality!

    September 24, 2005

    A miss is as good as a mile!

    All is well today in the Sque household! I was up the majority of the night and fell asleep watching the storm coverage last night. The wind was howling and at some point we lost power, but it's back on this morning! Just minor debris litter's the streets here and there, but overall...It was a miss, that's for sure!
    As much of a relief as this is for us and our community, I can't help feeling guilty for wishing it to turn way from us, toward Louisiana. I cannot help but think about our neighbors today. Those folks have suffered more devastation than I can even try to imagine. Please remember them in your prayers and by all means, if you have the means to do so, do what you can to help the relief efforts over there. I know I certainly will.

    Chaos is putting it mildly...

    It looks a bit like Rita might be turning north and might hit around the Texas-Louisiana Border. Of course, you can't tell that by our local media! It's almost as if they are trying to strike fear into us on purpose. Each local station is saying something different. One says "there is no need to leave. Just expect tropical storm force winds [as if thats no big deal], heavy rain, thunder and the possibility of a tornado". Another station is saying emergency shelters in our area are closing and that voluntary evacuation "may" be encouraged. That evacuee's from the Houston/Galveston area are to continue north of our area, as we may be evacuating. Uhm Hello? There isn't an available hotel room in the State of Texas! Gasoline to go anywhere? Non-existant! I searched seven different stores yesterday for ONE friggen flashlight...Do you think I found one? Tea candles are the best I could some up with! Then I had to ask myself, why do I not own a flashlight? Normal people own flashlights. Sque does not own even one flashlight and the day I would like to buy a flashlight, our city is fresh out of...dare I say it again? Yes I shall. Flashlights!

    Note to self: Buy a few flashlights after the hurrican passes FFS!


    B/CS is my city... Please let that thing turn NORTH like it was forecasted to!





    I really hate for Louisana to take more of a beating than they already have, but it's a very scary feeling to have that thing staring down our throats like that. Where ever it hits, I just pray all have evacuated and that as many folks as possible are spared even more devistation. Whew...I just don't see how Florida can keep withstanding these things.


    I'll update again later. Stay tuned!

    Anyone up for a hurricane Party?

    Not!


    So yeah, we're in the direct path of Hurricane Rita! I have to admit that I have never really been through one of these, so I'm not sure what to expect. I recall one hitting the Galveston area in the mid 80's, but I was in Hawaii at the time, so really have no clue about these things. When we returned home, it seemed as though nothing had happened and at that point we were about 100 miles inland. I suppose the difference this time around is that I am roughly 150 miles inland and this freak of nature is a category FIVE! *Que-Rock you like a Hurricane* I may have to upload that now that I think about it! *grins*





    See the red thingy up there in Texas? That is my current location and with any luck, my home will not be picked up and moved into another zip code.

    The plan for now is that we'll stay put, but that may change! I will spend tomorrow securing patio furniture and stocking up on non perishable foods and batteries and lots of toilet paper in case I crap my pants! haha I may even go so far as buying a package of depends. Ya just never know and I shall not be caught unprepared! If it gets too bad, plan B is to panic and drive North like the big chicken that I am, at the last minute. Tia says she's ready and will travel! In fact, she is already asleep in the carrier! She's a smart one that cat!

    In any case, I'll keep ya posted! I may even blog periodically during the night Friday and during the day Saturday! Assuming the electricity holds out through the storm. Now don't go getting all panicked! The Weather Channel is only calling for a 70% chance of rain, with 25 MPH winds at this point, for my area. I think I can survive that. Heck we have worse springtime thunderstorms worse than that! Lets just pray to keep the tornadoes away, shall we? I would really appreciate that, and some extra heavy duty prayers for those along the coast!


    Updates on some other stuffs to come later!


    Stay tuned for further weather developments.
