We were supposed to go to Fort Morgan for our vacation next week but on Thursday we got this message from our realty company, "Due to coastal flooding from Ike, we are no longer honoring reservations from 09/11 through 09/25. Our leasing office is inaccessible and we will have to assess damage to all of our rental properties before we are able to proceed with future reservations." Surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes.
Onward with Plan B. We need to get out of town. Desperate for a change of scenery. So we gave up on the Gulf of Mexico and went inland to Red Creek in Mississippi. Bird watching, rafting and bonfires. Sounds heavenly.
Good luck to everyone dealing with Ike in Texas and the Midwest. The 2008 hurricane season cannot end soon enough.
