It's eerily quiet here today at the Advocate. We're all working hard to keep everyone updated through the day on our web site and with a special Ike print edition on Saturday.

The whole town is kind of quiet -- I'm wondering actually how many people are left here waiting out Ike. The traffic on the streets is down, half the town is boarded up, and there's not much to do.

So, anyone out there having a cool hurricane party? Let me know what you'll be doing to wait out Ike, and what you'll be doing through what promises to be a long, quiet weekend.

Thanks, and stay safe. As always, thanks for reading and posting.
