Update on Hurricane Gustav

Whew!  Hurricane Gustav is now a tropical storm and we believe we got lucky.
We are receiving rain and winds that are gusting no more than 30 mph.
And to top that, Gustav has decided to take a more northerly route through
Louisiana before getting to Texas.

We may get heavier rain throughout the day as movement of the storm continues.
The storm is now covering the length of the Texas and Louisiana border.

I can handle the rain, wind and being on the west side of a hurricane certainly
has its benefits. For those of you who have never been through a hurricane,
the east side is what we call the “dirty side”.  It has the heaviest rain and
wind along with creating tornados like you cannot imagine.  When the storm
is moving through your area, it can take up to 12 to 16 hours of sustained or
continuous wind at the high speeds.  Of course, the more land it hits, the
slower or downgraded it becomes.  The west side of the storm is called the
“clean” side which gives less rain and wind.

The damage in Louisiana was not as extensive as katrina but pretty bad.
However, folks will be going back to their homes probably starting tomorrow
to assess the damage.  Thank goodness, I have not heard of any deaths here
or in Lousiana from the storm.

Thanks to all who have come by and lended support and humor!  I still have
electricity and the day is young.  Now to watch the next parade of hurricanes
that are stretched out across the Atlantic.

    Hi Wilson … Gustav is now giving Oklahoma and Arkansas more water than they can use. We will continue to get rain today but we should start drying out tomorrow. YEAH!
