Here in Dallas, we were told to be prepared for a Cat 1 Hurricane (which is why all the morons were buying TEN flashlights at a time) but so far, it's just been really gusty winds and rain.

I used the storm as an excuse to buy candles from Target and liquor last night. And thank goodness I did because the overly dramatic local hurricane coverage has been insufferable and only the totally unnecessary Ike liquor (shhhhh, I've been making margaritas and watching the Georgia game while cleaning house today) makes it tolerable.

But honestly, Houston v. Dallas jokes aside, all prayers and thoughts going out to my fellow Texans on the gulf who have been affected by this.
