so when i heard that this new storm named ike was out there, i figured it wouldn't give us any trouble. see, ike was my dad's name. i know it's not rational, but it's how i think.
well, looks like i'm quite possibly going to be wrong. it's a category 4 hurricane and is set to hit florida as a category 3. not sure where it'll hit exactly yet, but there is a good chance we'll have to evacuate.
i got to thinking... man, evacuation is going to be blast with THREE DOGS, THREE CATS, TWO FOSTER KITTENS, and TWO TORTOISES. !!! the entire back seat of the truck will be STACKED ANIMAL CRATES. thank god we'd also tow the boat, so we could put whatever we were bringing in the cabin.
we have hurricane windows and all, so we could probably quite easily leave the cats behind with some extra food, but.. it's category 3! i can't fathom it. let's hope ellie comes around; he's been avoiding the house ever since the kittens arrived.
