Go Away Gustav!!

That's my slogan for this weekend.

Unfortunately, me and the boys (aka dogs) are staying in the P'cola unless it looks like its going to get ugly. Right now all the models show it hitting somewhere between the middle of Alabama and Texas. I pray that it doesn't hit New Orleans. I filled up the tank today, it was freaking crazy. Brent has told me all week to keep my tank above a 1/2 tank throughout hurricane season. (note to self don't wait until the Friday before the weekend when a hurricane could be approaching) I drove by 5 gas stations and the lines were out into the streets. So granted a paid a little more at an expensive gas station but didn't have to wait. Sorry my time is precious to me and waiting in line for 30 minutes to get to save $2 or $3 today just wasn't worth it to me.

Before Fay I stocked up on batteries and flashlights. Tonight on my way home from work I'm going to stop at Family Dollar or Dollar General and buy more water and hopefully find a battery operated radio.

The dogs and I are going to hunker down and hopefully Gustav will blow over (pun intended) without any issues.
