to-do lists

Previous to-do list for today:

clean out closets
prime kitchen for painting

New to-do list:

buy ice, more canned food, paper plates, batteries
move all furniture and toys out of back yard
put plywood up on some windows
double check 72-hour kit
prepare mentally so I don't freak out and scare the kids

We've decided to stay here and "hunker down." This storm looks pretty scary, but I feel ok about staying. If we lose power for a long time, maybe we'll head west to my sister's house near Austin. For now, there is no evacuation order in place.

I'll freak out for you. I'll be sending prayers that it misses you.

We're thinking of you too! Just think - you'll be experts at "hunkering down" like all the natives. (Did I conjugate the term right? Okay: I hunker, you hunker, he/she hunkers, we hunker, they are hunkering, ...)

I've been thinking of you all weekend and have been trying to follow the storm, which isn't easy when you have no TV. I hope you guys got out relatively unscathed...
