I (Don’t) Like Ike

As you may be aware, Houston is staring down a major hurricane (currently Saffir-Simpson category 2, but probably about to become a 3 or maybe even a 4). I’ll be working from home the rest of the day and all of tomorrow, given the craziness that is Houston’s roadways during a coastal evacuation. Our place is new, well-built, and nowhere near either the coast or flood-prone areas, so that’s not much of a concern; we just have to ride it out.

Anyway, for those checking in on us: we’re fine; we’re staying; we’ll be in touch as/when we can, though you should expect us to lose power for at least a while on Friday or Saturday, which could mean several days. I think, for kicks, I’ll live-blog it to the extent I can, starting tomorrow evening. So, if you’re looking for up-to-the-minute Ike reports, I’ll try to oblige.

Meanwhile, the best sources of information are StormPulse, The Weather Channel, and the National Hurricane Center.
