    LOL I know, right? I'm so sick of bad weather, the rain, now all of these storms. Anyone with children will know how I'm dealing with all of this with 4 kids and 4 dogs all stuck in the house for days on end. And, on top of it all, our county just announced that there is no school tomorrow. YAY, NOT! lol

    Hurricane Ike exploded this evening from a tropical storm to a Category 4 hurricane that is expected to grow stronger.

    The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center reports that Hurricane Ike rapidly intensified today, reaching Category 4 strength this evening.

    Ike is now the third major hurricane of the 2008 season.

    Ike continues to move to the west-northwest more than 610 miles northeast of the Leeward Islands, with winds near 135 mph.

    The potent storm is expected to pass close to or even over the Leeward Islands on Friday, then near or over the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Saturday.

    Ike has the greater potential to impact the U.S. than Tropical Storm Hanna. According to Expert Senior Meteorologist John Kocet, by Sunday Ike will be in a position close to where Hanna is Wednesday, and could reach the Southeast Coast by the middle of next week.

    It looks like those who left for Gustav might as well take a weeks vacation before they go back.

    I really think this one is going in at Mobile, AL. I just have a feeling. I am so freaked b/c I work at a hospital and we are required to go in if it looks like it may come our way and stay in case we are needed to help with patients...I don't want to be away from my family if the weather is dangerous.
