Oh, Ike! How Do I Loathe Thee? Let Me Count the Ways!

by CajunKate

So this whole being on the east side of Hurricane Ike thing is sucking *ss! For the past two hours, the cable box has been automatically switching us to The Weather Channel becuase of tornado warnings. Thank God we don't have those freakin' sirens like they do in the MidWest, or I'd be completely flipped out right now and spending the night hiding in the bathtub under a mattress.

But let's take it one step further and top off the tornado warnings with the fact that Alex's boss called and told him to come into work because the power was out at their building. Oh, hey, yeah! That sounds awesome! Let's send my husband out into the area that was directly addressed by the local meteorologist as being "extremely dangerous" not ten minutes ago. That's greeeeeaaaaat! If not for copious amount of beer, I could very well be a full blown mess right now.
