Those are some very big clouds. Stay safe.

ZOOLATRY said...

Have been following the news on this all day -- sounds like you are not evacuating; but I hope you're at least "up high"... yet not "up too high". Being kind of an old-hand at hurricanes, have to say this one looks like it could rival 1900! Lord, I pray all of you will be safe... and Marilyn as well (she's even southeast of you, right...).

KC and Missy and everycat,
Please be safe!

Our MIG's aunt/uncle live in Pasadena and they are choosing to ride out the storm at home with their 2 woofies.

We thinks they named this storm after our Little Monkey-Isaac but they all call him Ike.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Oooh, please keep posting pictures and news. We want to know how you're doing every minute. (Tell those sea birds that they can hang out at your house during the storm.)

Sweet Praline said...

I am worried about all of our fur friends and beans in Ike's path. Thanks for keeping us up-to-date.

I saw that sunset. Wasn't it beautiful? Ironically beautiful!

We're all hanging in here, and once our mom decides to hit the hay (we've heard the expression, but not sure where it comes from!), we'll all hunker down someplace not near windows.

Stay safe, all of you in the Sherwood house, and we'll try to do the same.

Grace & Company

Your FL furiends,

ML said...

Fortunately, we are in a new area that doesn't flood and we weren't asked to evacuate.
The winds are about 56 mph now and making an eerie howling outside the window. No rain yet.
We lost our cable boxes, one was on and one was off, neither work now.
Wish it wasn't night, I'd take more photos.
Thank you so much for all the purrs and support.

We saw on the CB that Ike had passed through and you were all okay. We are very glad to hear that and hope that you don't have too much cleaning up and/or damage to take care of.

Forty Paws said...

We're hoping that your electricity comes back sooner rather than later. The news is saying some areas will be out for 2-4 weeks. That would be a very long long long time. Hang in there, we're sending you tons of purrs and purrayers.

we ar preying for u to be ok my babys ar worred to and they pry wif me ok stey save u all LOA WUFFYS AND BABYS

Marilynn said...

ML and crew must not have power yet either, or they would have posted by now. The only reason I'm online is because my daughter's neighbor has a generator and has run a heavy-duty extension cord to my daughter's house -- for the fridge, modem, router, and a few outlets for charging phones and laptops!

We're all fine, but bored, bored, bored. We're not due to get our power back until after next Monday, so ... I'll be continuing to access the Internet here at my daughter's or at a nearby Starbuck's!!

Grace, Audace, and Ruse are doing great. They don't understand my altered go-to-bed and get-up times, though!! LOL

How's everyone at ML's by now (9/18/08)?

{{{{hugs}}}}

Your FL furiends,

One-Eyed Jack said...

We heard you got your power back! Woohoo! Hope you've been keeping your humans warm and calm, and we're so glad you're all ok! We've been purring for you!

Also, if you feel up to it, the house-trashin' party will be next weekend, and we've got more help and more reason to be mad at the OTW!

(Purrrrrrrrrrrrs KC!)

~Jack (and Persephone)

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Yay for having your power back. We hope things get back to normal for you and everybuddy very soon!

Anita said...

I have read in the Catblogosphere your good news!! We are so glad that already you have electricity.

When the strange tropical storm Delta visited us (2 years ago), we also were one week without electricity.

Purrrs.
