Neighborhood looks like a bomb went off in places.  It is a mess.  Tons of powerlines and trees down.  More rain coming, which sucks.  They should have my power on soon, however.  Mom and Dad never lost power.  Internet via the office’s cellular card.  Office still has power AND INTERNET.  Ah, the wonders of a T3 line.

In any event, it was a rough storm but we really dodged a bullet; it could have been much worse.

Schools are closed until next week, as many are shelters.

Church never lost power, which is good since there were evacuees in the gym.

I am exhausted.  Spent the morning cleaning storm drains so our streets wouldn’t flood.  Rest of it is just stress and not sleeping well at all last night.

In any event, thanks to everyone for the prayers.  I think Angels started to tear apart that storm before it hit Louisiana.

    I hear you. I just got power and watched the Entergy guys work on the lines for twenty minutes in a driving rain. God bless them; they are a special group of folks!

    Indeed we dodged a bullet in Gustav and no one need fool themselves, we have a hell of a lot of work to do as a region and a country to rebuild the coastal wetlands and it ain’t going to be easy or cheap!

    Praise God for the return of electric power!

    God’s peace, Brad!

    It’s actually very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news
    on TV, so I just use world wide web for that reason, and take
    the most recent news.
