You got it and we will be praying for not only you but everyone else. I just wish they would listen to me and move New Orlean’s about 50 miles north.

I know Doug will let me crash on his couch for a couple nights if I bring enough beignets. ;-)

My hope is the storm lessens and all will be ok. But if it is not I hope that any one along the Gulf Coast will ask for assistance. We, out of the path members, would be there to help.

We are praying for all along the projected path.

Charlie, I have room and about 700’ of fence line to clear. Come on up. :-)

Be prepared but don’t panic (yet), Heir Gustav has not confimed his long term travel plans. The current 5 day track shows a swath from the Rio Grande all the way to the Florida Panhandle, the odds right now are your favor. However, as the saying goes ” a little prayer can’t hurt”.

If anyone has plans for a ‘hurricane deflector’ please forward them to Wooder ASAP.

Oh, we’re not panicing just yet, but as we like to say down here, it ain’t over till it’s over…until it gets on land, we hold our breath. Check out the track of Elania in ‘85…..ya never know…..

I also work for the main power company in the southern part of the state. That makes for even more breath-holding…)<: I averaged 103 hrs a week for 7 weeks after Katrina…..getting too old for that stuff….lol

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.
