Remember my cute Sister in law and her awesome family from Texas? Well they are running from a little storm named Ike. They live in Bay City, a little Southwest of Galveston and only about 15 miles from Matagorda Beach. They got the notice to evacuate yesterday and were in a panic trying to find where to go. They found one of the last hotel rooms they could find and headed to San Antonio.
While watching the weather channel tonight my little dude got a little worried about Kaycie and Shannon and asked me if they were dying because of the hurricane. I explained that they were safe, but asked if he wanted me to call her. So midnight her time I called Kaycie so he could talk to her. It was a sweet moment and I am glad he was able to hear from her that she is ok.
While talking to her she had just happened to mention something that I think is just too funny to not blog about. Here is kind of what was said....
Kaycie- I talked to the Manager of my apartments and he said that it is getting really bad. I can't believe that I forgot all my family pictures, birth certificates, marriage licences everything like that. But we are safe and have a roof over our heads.
Me- Yea a roof that won't blow off too. That is always nice.
Kaycie- But I did grab my griddle and my crockpot.
Me- You grabbed your what?
Kaycie- My griddle and my crockpot.
Me- Are you meaning to tell me that when you where told to evacuate the city NOW the first things you thought to get where your GRIDDLE and your CROCKPOT? (I was laughing so hard. This is just something that I can't seem to get over!)
Kaycie- Well, Shannon's mom brought her deep fryer!
After she said that I was laughing so hard I was crying! Am I the only person in this world that thinks this is funny?
When life throws you a storm you can always make pancakes, chili, and fried chicken!
What would you take if you had to evacuate? Would you REALLY grab your pictures and stuff or would it really end up being something like a deep fryer?
LOL! I love it!
