Probably the most exciting (and frightening) thing in Spring, TX, that has happened to Grace and all the rest of us was Hurricane Ike in Sept 2008. Since we live about 100 miles inland, we knew we wouldn't have as bad a time as the people right along the coast. Here's what the storm looked like before it slammed into the Galveston/Houston area.
Between the rain and the winds, it was very noisy, and it seemed to last a long time ... most of two days and a night. Grace seemed quite unperturbed at first, and her boys followed her lead -- but we all ended up in the same bedroom overnight. It was clear she didn't want to be left alone, and we were all much happier to be together!
No photos were taken during those times ... Grace's servant had only a talk-n-text cell phone, and her first thoughts weren't about the camera!! Here are the blog posts we wrote during and after: HERE and HERE and HERE.
Grace and her servant were happy that we didn't have anything worse. We know other people lost everything, so we are very grateful. And I have to say, Grace's calm and purry lovey-ness really helped us all get through that night OK!!
Here are a couple of other photos taken in Old Towne Spring, TX, taken by Daddy Kiril (of Nikita and Elvira fame). Needless to say, we found this lovely kitteh far more fascinating than the town itself!
