Well, things are looking up all around weather wise. For us here in SE Texas but also for those in LA. Not near as fierce a storm as it could have been. Coming in at an angle that will soften the blow.
It's currently 1:35pm here. Not a single drop of rain yet. A little breezy outside, but nothing worrisome. The local weather keeps improving our forecast. Less rain and lower wind speeds. The officials are meeting this afternoon to consider lifting the evacuation order for this area either this evening or tomorrow. So, I may be expected to work tomorrow. We'll just have to see. I won't venture out in driving rain or cross all the bridges and overpasses I have to in winds with strong gusts.
I thank God for holding back Gustav's furry. Of course there will still be many adversely effected that will need help and prayers. But it could have been so many more. Now we should begin to turn our prayers to the East Coast and whatever Hanna has in store for them. Hanna the storm, that is. Not my little, sweet Hannah. :o)
Been so absorbed by the storm I had forgotten to include a salute in the past couple of entries....so:
