Hurricane Ike, Monday September 8

It’s only Monday but everyone is ready for Hurricane Ike. It’s supposed to hit Key West Tuesday, but Key West is all boarded up and most tourists are gone. Just locals hanging out, kite boarding or sitting at a bar. People are walking around the docks, looking for something to do. There’s a news crew but who knows what they could be saying, except that Key West is ready for Ike. It’s gusting 36 knots out there and still a whole day before the worst is supposed to hit us.
