Definition: the act of turning a hurricane evacuation into a short vacation.
So...Wednesday we decided to travel to Andrews to visit Josh's parents. At that time the storm was headed strait to Corpus and we wanted to get out of town before everyone else. However, the storm turned just before we left. We had two extra days off of school and work so we thought it would be the best time to drive 8 hours across the big 'ol state of Texas. We made a vacation out of it and got to see the family.
We have many friends and family that live in the Houston area and have been thinking a praying for them all night. It was a long scary night for many of them. I texted with my brother (Brandon) at 6 am and he said he thought the worst of it was over but it was a long night. They have no electricity and he heard lots of transformer explosions.
Lord please protect us from the storm. Help us to not be scared. Help the workers to get the electricity on as soon as possible. Help everyone get some rest after the long noisy night. Be with those who are hurting through this. Guide us through this time of stress. Thank you for loving us so much. We love you. Amen
