I could not let the day end without posting about the cowardly attack on our country on September 11, 2001. I have been watching a documentary and cannot believe how the feelings from that terrible day come back.
As we remember that terrible day, we face some panicky situations here in my town. These are minor in comparison to the terrorist attack. Today the gas stations were all packed with cars trying to get gas. Word is that it goes up $1.25 per gallon overnight. I got in a line that was relatively short - I was only the third car back. By the time I left the line of cars was out into the highway. It looks like Ike may be a really bad hurricane and they think it will wipe out many of those oil refineries in Texas. I hope it turns out to not be as bad as they say.
