No, this is not wood related. At all. However, if you live in the area potentially affected by Hurricane Ike – please heed all evacuation orders and leave immediately.
Leave your tools behind. Leave your prized timbers behind. Leave your big screen tv and all that other stuff behind. All of that stuff can be replaced, but you can’t.
The National Hurricane Center is carefully monitoring the situation, and local emergency managers will be giving you instructions. This storm has the capability of killing hundreds – possibly thousands – if people do not evacuate.
Remember, hurricane season runs through November 30 – please pay attention to the threat!
