Hurricane Gustav

It is after midnight and I have been glued for hours to the Weather Channel and CNN and local stations tracking Hurricane Gustav in the Gulf of Mexico as it takes aim at the New Orleans area and our Mississippi Gulf Coast. Just 3 years ago Friday we were hit by Hurricane Katrina which killed over 1,600 and left misery and devastation in Mississippi and Louisiana from which our region has still not fully recovered. I shudder to think of the horrors tomorrow will bring as Gustav comes ashore. Please keep our area and people in your thoughts and prayers.

Hi Jon,
We are doing the same thing here...watching the news and waiting to see the impact of the storm.

Hope you and your family (and your beautiful garden) weather the storm without any heavy damage.

I did a post today on what we've done to prepare. We all learned some valuable lessons from Katrina!

Take care,
Diane
