day FIVE without electricity - I'm logged in on my MIL's laptop with broadband. PLEASE be patient with me - I've worked some today on orders that I can see to fill, but light is limited in the shop at the moment. Hopefully, we will be back to normal by the end of the week. Cold showers and quick baths in a bucket are NOT fun. My 8yr old is having fun tho - he & DH bathed in the COLD creek last night, ha. No thanks - I'm not in the mood for an abrasive scrub of creek sand bath ...

Well, I'm off ...take care everyone & I will be back SOON!!!

Ike Update!

Hey there guys! I spoke with Stacy last night and they're all safe and sound. Still no power, but they're all doing okay. Her home and her shop are UNdamaged! Yeah! She's got lots of trees in her neck of the woods, and alot of them fell, but they just knew not to fall on things that are offlimits! She did speak to a service guy for her electric company when they were out checking the lines, and they're expecting power to be restored shortly because there was no damage to their substation and the main lines running through to her area.

We'll keep updating as necessary until she's back up and running!

I'm at my MIL's and she has broadband ... hmm ... think I will look into that, too. Just wanted to give you all an update on Hurricane Ike ... he rolled in around 3:00 am this morning -our electricity went out 10 minutes till 7:00 am and it will no doubt be off for days. Many, many trees down throughout our community, but we are all safe and okay. Thankfully we did not have any damage to any of our homes.

I will try to post updates as much as I possibly can ... talk to you all soon!

Soggy & wet,

Hi Friends!

Boy oh boy! What a way to start the day,eh? I feel like a broken record at the moment. Once again ... we are under a weather advisory at this time - Hurricane "Ike" is headed straight to Texas! We are going to be working orders up until the storm hits us. We are preparing for the storm, but will not be evacuating. Forecasters are estimating that my area (Lake Livingston) will most likey be hit with up to 90 mph winds. Lovely, just lovely.

We may be without electricity so we have stockpiled gasoline and prepped the generator. If this hurricane hits like Hurricane Rita a few years back, we will be without electricity for at least a week or longer.

(fyi - we are 60 miles north of Houston - we are pretty close to the Gulf so we get a lot of the crazy weather!)

Please keep us in your thoughts! All we can do now is PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! Pray hard that this hurricane fizzles out!

Of course, our website is open and still working... I will be working.

So, if you do not hear from me ... this is why! Bad weather = no electricty!

For all the folks in the path of the storm - STAY SAFE!

Thank you!

Whew, looks like we missed it! Thank goodness! We only had a small amount of rain and a little wind, but that is all. My poor friends over Louisiana didn't manage so well. :( Stephanie of Nature's Cauldron is out of electricity, but the family & their health are both okay.

It looks like "Ike" is heading straight towards us ... he should be here by the end of this week. I am SO ready for hurricane season to be over!!
