GUSTAV

Well, for the past week we've been dealing with Hurricane Gustav. I live outside of Baton Rouge and what a mess of destruction this storm left our area.... So many trees are uprooted, broken, water flooding into houses, power lines down in so many areas. Really sad to see your town look so badly. Our house is brand new so luckily we were without the BIG trees to worry with. I still had water enter through the windows in 3 rooms of the house. At times I'd just stand with bowls in my hands trying to catch some of the water coming in. ugh.... Drywall damaged, carpet is so wet. Our roof leaked as well over the bathroom too. But compared to the other destruction this storm left, I feel mine is so minor. Least we still have our home. We were jumping with joy yesterday when the power was restored. The high temps and then added humidty was not fun! Trying to catch back up on all my laundry now. I think we used every towel in the house to help with the water coming in. Still have some lawn clean up left to do. Need stakes too for our young trees that were blown over. We waited for 3 1/2 hours in line yesterday morning for gasoline. Only a couple of stores are back open in our town and the lines are huge.....

Continue to keep the families in Louisiana in your prayers.....
