Things Looking Up all Around

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:

Morocco, Indiana 825

  1. Thank God things are lessing up. It is showing the water coming over the top of the levee in LA. I hope it doesn't break again. The motels are all full up with people around here and some are in Birmingham AL. Some churches have opened shelters also. That is about 1-1/2 hours from here. I hope things soon settle down and be gone. Helen

  7. Hi Barbara- I am so grateful Gustav wasn't near what he could have been!  What he started out as being!  YAY!  I know there will be damage and people put out again, but property is easier to replace than people- and I'm glad the big cities took it seriously thistime. God Bless, and I join you in watching Hanna!  And Ike!  God Bles!  Carolyn

  8. Hopefully it won't be that bad for your area.  I still can't figure out why we're re-building on such unstable land, but it's very valuable so that explains it ($$) anyway glad you're ok, stay well Barbara.  xoxo  CATHY
