My Superman!!

I just wanted to make a quick note to say how much I LOVE my Superman!! Yep, Randy is my Superman! The story....
We have been watching VERY CLOSELY "Hurricane Ike" for the last week. (As you know, it has been a very strong storm and has caused much destruction to Cuba, and is headed for the US Gulf Coast!) Well, over this last weekend, Randy pulled out all of our boards and made sure they were still usable and ready to be put into place. (He knows that he will have to fly a plane out for the Navy if a hurricane is to come this way, so we need to have a plan in place for just that purpose.) Well, he spent all day Saturday pulling boards out, fitting them to the appropriate windows, fixing the hurricane clips on each board, and arranging them into an accessible spot. Then, he went out to the Home Depot with our neighbor and helped him get the lumber & other accessories he needed to have for hurricane preparedness. (What a sweet guy!!) So, now it is Tuesday, and it looks like Hurricane Ike is going to hit FAR, FAR away from here! Yay!! But, what is funny is that Randy keeps saying to me..."You are welcome, Pensacola! I have SINGLE-HANDEDLY warded off the hurricane by spending my whole weekend preparing for it!!"
So now you know why Randy is my "Superman!" And I love him to pieces...

All the time we were working on the boards, C kept saying it [finally getting them] guaranteed that Ike wasn't going to hit anywhere near us! Thanks for all your help-with the lumber and keeping Ike at bay!!!!

Funny how that works, right? At least all of his hard work kept Ike away!

No kidding -- Especially since it was reported that the people in Galvaston, TX would face "imminent death" if they don't evacuate!
