Our Weather's Growing Dangerous
How's everyone? Family visiting kept me very busy the past few days. My cousins all came to visit together and we had a ball catching up and reliving the past.
I'll have to tell you about it in a future post. They are all gone now and I am trying to put the house back together and cleaning.
Right now, we are bracing for impending nasty weather. Isaac is now a hurricane and headed for the coastal region of Louisiana!
President Obama has urged residents to hunker down or "get out" if told to do so, saying, "its not the time to tempt fate". Everyone is hopeful those levees will hold although this is certainly no Katrina...only a category 1 storm with 6-12 feet surges...but it is still a hurricane!
I had a map from our region to show you, but I can't upload any pics for some reason...however, the North-west areas where we live, are out of those tropical strong winds, rain and tornadoes, but we are expecting wind and rain from the feeder bands 40-50 mile gusts. Already winds have picked up here, but not too bad. It is a pretty sunny day now. I suppose you can say..."the calm before the storm".
Tomorrow and Thursday...will be our turn. Pray we all make it through! If I don't come back afterwards, it may be because of power outages.
Hope those of you in the coastal areas have gone to areas of protection and safety...out of harms way! Our prayers are with you!
