Hurricane Gustav

Greensburg is in repeats right now so there are no new updates for you
today. Planet Green is taking a holiday along with the rest of us!

Hurricane Gustav is projected in a beeline right for me. So, forgive me
if this is too short and sweet as I need to prepare for the onslaught of
10 inches of rain and high winds starting late tonight and running through
Thursday.

Battening down the hatches, mates, we are in for a big blow but not as bad
as the Gulf Coast, mainly Louisiana, is fixin to feel.

Lessons were learned from Katrina. I will tell you this much, there have
been massive evacuation efforts going on over the weekend. Nursing homes
here in East Texas have gained anywhere from 60 to 100 extra patients.
Hospitals here are wall to wall gurneys. Prisons are being evacuated as well.
Let’s just say that all roads out of major cities have become one way and
folks are taking heed to leave. All Hotels/Motels are booked solid, We are
all hunkerin down cause there is no where else to go.

I will keep you updated as the week continues with hopes of keeping electricity
throughout. LOL, LOL, LOL…. I crack me up!

    Hey Wilson … This is hurricane season and as long as I have lived in Texas, we have easily 15/year sometimes less. For the last two years, we have had only tropical storms.

    Hi Eric … So far today, we have winds about 25 mph but the rings are just getting into Texas. The downgrade will help us out tremendously.

    Hi Barbara … Thought I would update before it hits us this evening. Got everything tightened down and ready for the winds and rains.

    Hi Oil down three bucks …. We are getting rain right now in waves so it is on its way a little early!

    Hi Bioteck … Me too! if the wind gets down to 60 mph or less, we will do just fine!

    Hi Monica … The folks in Southeast Texas are going to get some goodies here shortly. Most of them are up here but no prob, lots of us made room for them.

    Thanks to all of you and will keep ya updated as I can.
