In case you live under a rock some place (and that is the only safe place to be right now!) we are expecting a hurricane 'round these here parts. Being about 60 miles inland, we don't have the trouble that people closer to the coast have, but we do need to prepare.
The kids and I have been out in the yard this morning securing some of the things that might become airborne and decide to be uninvited guests in our neighbor's living rooms. Well, they were helping until they found some frogs and toads hiding under some boards.
*sigh* At least, the toads will survive Ike.
