Hurricanes and Babies

So at work today they call all of us in to a meeting and tell us to get our evacuation plan in order .That we are pretty much going to have to get the heck out of dodge and all that .Well I am from Kentucky as some of you already know before that I was raised in Las Vegas ...So needless to say I have never been through a major hurricane .The year before last we had a cat one come through named Claudette ..That was basically kind of fun ..We got off work early and got some really cool flooded road pics but nothing got major damage so all was good .Well this time they are thinking it is not going to be so good .So needless to say I was a weee bit freakin out .If it gets to the point where we are going to have evacuate we have to go board the MIL's house up because she is away in Romania right now and can not even be reached .That sucks for two reasons ..For one she is right on the water and I really worry about her house so I am praying it is ok .Second We spend almost our whole weekend over there scrubbing and cleaning.Anyway we also have to get his Grammy and his neice ...His sister and her hubby have to stay here because they are emergency personnel .His sister is a 911 dispatcher and her hubby is a firefighter .So we will need to go get their daughter .We are thinking about getting them early and running them up to his other sisters and then coming back for the two dogs and our lil one .We will either go on to his Dads which is 4 hours inland or Kentucky which is about 20 hours from here .His dad may still be away in Minnesota at a wedding .Guppy said, "well we can go just break a window" it would be cheaper to buy a window then to get a hotel .I think we should just drive on out to my parents house in KY myself ..I am praying and asking for prayers that the storm fizzles and we all remain safe.

On to much greater news ...My aunt gave birth to twin babies today.That is such cool news :) She had one girl and one boy weighing 5 lbs 10 oz and the other 5 lbs 3 oz I think that is pretty big for twin babies isn't it ?Anyway she has MS so this is great that she carried them to full term and they are so healthy..Truly some of God's great work.She is doing good and so are the babies ....
