Friday open thread

If you’re in the Houston area, you are in my thoughts and prayers right now as Hurricane Ike prepares to make landfall. Please be safe (hopefully, you’re already in a safe area).

I see gas prices have gone way up today in light of the news about Ike. A gas station close by where I live went up about 25 cents in one day. I got it this morning on the way in at a gas station that had it for $3.68. I’m sure it’s way up at that station by now.

I’ll be back later to catch up on blogging. TGIF.

Update – 4:33 PM: Houston blogger Jason Smith is staying put and is liveblogging the hurricane. Stay safe, Jason.
