Dear Hurricane Ike


I understand that we will most likely be in your path of destruction. I'm ok with this, and a little excited since the last time I was in a hurricane, was Hurricane Alicia and I was 3 years old, and I don't quite really remember, but would like to ask you for a few favors for my own selfishness.

I have yet to ride the Boardwalk Bullet at Kemah, and I would REALLY, REALLY like to, since Astroworld has shut down. So, please, if it is not too much trouble-- PLEASE just kind of skip over it.

Next on my "do not destroy list" is La Kings. Their ice-cream is amazing and it is fun to watch them make Salt Water Taffy. It is also fun to pretend that I'm back in the early 1900's with the setting and aura of the place. Also-I can't live without their chocolate covered almonds. Need I say more?
3rd- please forget that Surfside Beach exists. This is our family vacation rental, that we normally will rent out for a week or 2 each summer. It sleeps 32 and for a really good price- and that is hard to come by! We need this house- so that we can keep coming back for more. They also have a nice hottub to sit in after a long day at the beach. Never ending relaxation at this place.

If you can do these 3 easy favors for me- I would REALLY appreciate it. Oh, and if it is not too much to ask, - please keep my family safe, my home safe, my dear friends safe (which means you better hope you are a dear friend of mine and not just a friend or else Ike might come and get you)

With all my love and support for you to hit us as a Cat 2 storm (no more then that please),

Bertie

What would you want spared (besides all the normal important stuff) if a hurricane was coming your way?

You are so funny! Ice cream shops, rollercoasters, and vacation homes are what really matters in life too. I hope Ike behaves himself. Are you evacuating?

Bertie said...

Nope- we are hunkering down! I have to experience at least one real hurricane in my life(that I can remember)! We are prepared- and that is good:) I'll take lots of pics to post when I can, or when the internet is back up if we lose power. Stay tuned! Are you sad you aren't here:) LOL!

Katie- I know- isn't it CRAZY Astroworld shut down- it was like it was obliterated- it is as if it never existed! SO SAD!
