Gustav Update

It appears that P'cola and the Eastern Gulf Coast will get spared, however I'm still not comfortable. But I do feel better prepared. I bought plenty of water, can goods, bread, dog food, batteries, flashlights, etc. I also bought a battery powered radio and some more candles. I think the issue that has me so uneasy is that Brent isn't here. He's in Mississippi and totally out of the way of the hurricane.
I wish he was here but I know its best if he is up there. Actually, his friend Ryan (who was an usher in our wedding) is a teacher in New Orleans. He and his roommate evacuated at 3:00 am Saturday morning and drove up to stay with Brent at the military housing. So granted I am alittle miffed that Brent isn't here but, I'm very happy that he is there to take in Ryan and his roomie.

I think P'cola should be fine, we're are suppose to start seeing winds and rain later this afternoon. We are to experience Tropical Storm like conditions for the next 2 days or so. I don't think we should lose power, but its been known to happen in a bad storm before. (Last time, Brent and I played Scrabble by candle light and drank semi-warm beer.... oh romance at its finest)

To all in the Gulf Coast, be prepared and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
