Will he or won't he?

Still waiting for word on Ike. He is massive. The storm is a category 2, but the storm surge could be a category 5. We started getting wind this afternoon and he's still 300 miles out. They're calling it a certain death storm. About 1.4 million evacuees (ok, so maybe not that many, but it sure feels like it) rolled into our area starting yesterday afternoon. Schools closed early today to help with the traffic/congestion. Within an hour we should be feeling winds from the outer band...between 29-57 mph wind gusts. Here's what it looks like here right now.

I remember those distinctive bands from a couple of years ago...
