In the post-hurricane chaos, we are expecting my Nana to stay with us and my brother + fam to come to an Austin hotel (my mother somehow magically found an available room). My Nana is on the 7th floor of a building with no electricity, and my brother’s neighborhood may have been hit by tornados. It sounds like he’ll need a chainsaw to get his car out of the driveway. I’m glad they can come up here, since there is no way to know when power will be restored. Despite my deep desire for rain, today I’m happy to be out of Ike’s path. And again, thank goodness Mom and Dad are in Santa Fe! Great timing on that.
On the upside, the forecast looks really nice, so hopefully the fam can enjoy their time in Austin. I have a lot of gardening to do, maybe I can enlist some little helping hands this week!
