I never thought being a native of the Ohio Valley in Louisville, KY I would deal w/ the aftermath of a hurricane. We are running out of gasoline, there are'nt many stores, businesses, or any schools open. The homeless residing in shelters are homeless due to power outages. Total persons without electricity 300,000 and the eta on services being fully operational 10-14 days. I am suppose to return to school next week for my second quarter classes but I'm not sure if that will happen now. Anyone else been affected by the weather?

Good ole Ike is affecting a lot of people outside Texas. There is gas shortage all over the country. Prices going up again after going down for several weeks and some stations running out. It will take time for the refineries and delivery trucks to catch up. Then there is all the flooding as he moved north with people having to leave their homes. Electricity out in a lot of places here on the east coast. Here in South Carolina where I live we are only affected by the problems with gas shortages and prices. It is claimed that those problems won't last for long. I do feel for all those that are affected by this storm. I think that in the end Ike is a lot worse that Katrina was 3 years ago because of the fact that there is so much more damage and it moving across the county.

Things are getting better. Though there are about 125,000 w/o power. Lot of price gouging on groceries and neccessities. A corner store was reported to be selling tealight candles for a $1 a pop. Ridiculous and scandalous!

I guess a person has to get every thing ahead of time if at all possible. But who knows just what is going to be needed
