Yes, we are staying
We are staying for Ike. This thing turned too quick for us to react. Our mayor has asked us to shelter in place to allow those in real danger to be able to leave. We experienced catastrophy when the entire city tried to evacuate three years ago. Some even lost their lives. We live in a place in the city that will receive high winds but not much danger of flooding. We have invited friends to stay with us during the worst part of the storm. It just makes it better for everyone to have friends to distract you. Our plan is to leave the city after the storm if it looks like we will be without electricity for an extended period. Pray for those in the path of this storm.
