Back from Ike, Sort Of

This Ike, I like

Been on an Ike-imposed basement run since we lost our internet access last Saturday (thankfully we didn’t lose power).

Hope to post more about our experience in the upcoming days.

Take a Hike Ike

Had to go with something less tired and trite than “I don’t like Ike”. Though Ike did force most of our employers here in the Houston area to give us Friday off.

Here’s a satellite picture of Hurricane Ike (courtesy of the good folks at ABC 13 here in H-town)

This thing is ginormous (it almost covers the entire Gulf of Mexico!)

The 10AM National Hurricane Center forecast had the eye going about 0.5 mi from our church. The forecast has since then shifted to the east of the Bayou City.

Something I’ve wondered about praying when a hurricane is coming. If you pray for a hurricane not to hit your town, isn’t your prayer an imprecatory prayer since the storm will hit another person’s town? (Let’s leave out the fact that maybe the other person is also praying for the storm not to hit their town)
