And One For Today

Thankfully missed again.

As I look out the window I see trees being blown around pretty significantly and it is cloudy at the moment, but that is all that Gustav has brought to us so far. I don't even think it has rained since Saturday night. According to the radar the rains are just south of us in the Gulf.

My parents live about40 miles west of us and it has rained there all morning.

My cousin, who lives in New Orleans and didn't have time to evacuate (WHAT!?!) was doing fine as of 8am. He is without power, of course, but his cell phone is charged and his mother is calling him every few hours. There is obviously some in sanity in the family, but I didn't think this particular cousin had it. I am certain he will be fine.

We are outside of what I lovingly call "The Cone of Death" for Hanna, although I am hoping that she doesn't dump anymore rain on the rest of the state, either. There are places to the north of us who need rain, but not 30 blasted inches at one time.

I am ready for the storms to go away now.

I am dead center for the cone of anxiety for Ike. Anxiety is pretty heavy here today. After Frances, Jean and Wilma in years past, I'm getting pretty sick and tired of this. I imagine we will spend the weekend putting up the shutters, dragging everything outside and on the patio inside, and sweating like crazy.

No Fun!
