GOODBYE GUS,,,HELLO HANNA


Well, we made it through another one. We had a rough ride with the feeder bands, lots of rain and wind gusts of 75 mph, but nothing at all like Katrina. We lost our power but just a few minutes ago, we got it back on. It was a hot time in the old town tonight, let me tell you.

There is still a curfew and they are not letting anyone come back home that evacuated, until tomorrow, Wednesday. Trees and limbs on the road, flooding and power lines, down everywhere is the reason for that. We stayed when we realized the winds at the worst would be 75.

Our problem now, is Hanna out there and not knowing where she might go if she turns.and right behind her, Ike and Josephine. Never a dull moment this time of year. I hope all of you in the path of this storm, are doing well. Thank you all for caring so much. You are amazing people.

Yep, we expected heavy winds. But so far just some rain. I live in kind of a secluded little area of brick garden homes. So I think being close to one another helps shield us. I don't even have my Target gazebo tacked down to the cement, and it's been there over two years now. So glad you're okay...

Glad to hear from you Eve. I have wondered how you were doing down there. Saw some footage from Gulfport, looked pretty tough! Very glad you are safe.

Glad you are okay. We didn't get wind, or rain up here in north central TX (Dallas area), only a break in the high temps for a day or so.

I'm glad to hear that you weathered the storm, Eve. Austin is sheltering a number of Louisiana refugees tonight. I'm relieved that the storm spared New Orleans, but I wouldn't have minded a little rain here in Austin. We got none.

So happy to hear you are OK! You were on my mind, along with a blogger friend in Layfette, Louisiana! Both of you are OK, THANK GOD! Yes...we are really watching Hannah, expecting some winds on Thursday and Friday here in PB County, Fl.

Glad to hear all is well. Thank God that the storm weakened. Hallelujah! Hopefully the next storms will peeter out and turn away from the coast.

So very glad you are doing well! Eve, 75 mile hour winds seem pretty fierce!

I am trying to imagine what life was like before they had accuweather to pinpoint block by block where the storm was located!

Hurricane season is not easy.

I'm glad to hear that you made it through the first one. I hope the next couple don't cause you any problems. Oh, can you tell Hannah that she needs to come to Middle Tennessee.

Stay safe down there!

So glad to know you are ok, Eve. Watching the news, I realize there was a lot of damage, but thank God nothing like Katrina.
I hope Hanna, Ike, Josephine, and whoever follows wear themselves out before they hit shore.
Take care.

Glad you are okay. I know this time of year must be a bit stressful for coastal dwellers.... Here in GA we are keeping an eye on Hanna as she may come right over us. We need the rain but not the winds....
