Update

Okay so far, although Dan is sabotaging my strategy to make the house cold before we lose power. I gave the man a sweater. He needs to leave the thermostat alone.

I can't find the C batteries for the portable TV and I didn't get more at the start of the season. Looks like we'll be on radio-only after we lose power. That and Blackberry, but we'll be trying to conserve the batteries on that until after the storm. We aren't going to be going out to the truck to recharge during a hurricane. (We have a detached garage, 1950s-style.)

Just heard a bump outside but it could've been anything.

Still no rain, but weather.com says sustained winds of 33 mph, gusts of 57. Sounds about right.

I might go heat up some dinner now. I'll be up all night.

I'll be up for a few more hours, so you've got virtual company! Hope dinner is yummy, and hang tight. We're watching a fellow on the Weather Channel reporting out of Houston, and he's out in Ike and getting buffeted around quite a bit.

Glad you still have power! ((((hugs)))) from me and purrs from the Ballicai!

Going to bed up here in the Pac. NW. Knock HARD if you show up!

Will read about it in the AM and I hope all reports are good...

A couple of transformers have blown, but things are still okay. Wind isn't too scary yet either, although it will be.

I keep hearing weird rumblings, though. I don't like those since I can't identify them and they sound big.

We're still with you here in VA--up for a while.
