Shreveport's starting to get the rain bands now ... Being the good parent that I am, when kids asked, I said of course you can go outside and play in the hurricane rains! they're having a blast ... i'm watching them as I type right now. hehe

Galveston looks bad ......

Give them a bottle a shampoo so they can wash their hair. I used to do that when I was little.

We got some feeder band action here, too. Gotta love tropical rain, out of a mostly clear blue sky, that only last a few minutes at a time.

Well, everything's cool here. We had a house full of friends/family last night ... big party. About 1/3 of city is out of electricity still this morning. We never lost any, so lots of guys ended up camping out at our house. The kids loved it ... it was a lot of fun.

Houston looks pretty bad though.

We are getting hit hard in Chicago right now. Ten inches of rain has fallen since yesterday and it's supposed to pour again all day today, which is now the remnants of Ike. We're watching our basement very closely. My court/culdesac is a lake.

I hope you stay dry, M! I'm always amazed at the amount of real estate affected by these tropical cyclones. I wouldn't be surprised if our friends in Canada and even Europe feel the effects!

Sometimes, these storms can end up circling the globe a couple of times, in one form or another!!!

Just for fun, I'll track the path of Ike and its resultant extratropical cyclone.

Here he is around western New York.

Ike has left the premises! Wow....what a lot of rain we had this weekend. I now can claim to have river-front property (the river is supposed to be across the street but all streams and rivers are flooded way over their banks.) Our basement survived, though. :D

J - did you get all this rain too?

Ike is the large cloud-mass entering the North Atlantic at the top center of the picture...
