Hurricane Ike is currently forecast by the National Hurricane Center to hit a portion of the Texas coast just south of Houston-Galveston, where I am still located, as a major hurricane. The forecast is close to this area's "worst-case scenario".
That said, both the location of the hit and its intensity are far from certain, but the time for me to prepare to evacuate is now. If I do have to leave, I will head to a point north of town tonight or tomorrow morning, and what I do from there will depend on what, if anything, happens and how it affects me.
So I'm "boarding up" the blog for now...
I will be back as soon as possible.
In the meantime, the more lasting significance of this date is not lost on me: Today is the anniversary of what has so far turned out to be a significant new low in the passivity of Western Civilization in the face of savagery.
You can read my thoughts on this matter, as well as those of others who hope to change this situation for the better here.
