Still Waiting for Gustav

“Still Waiting for Gustav”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

Still waiting for Gustav to decide where he is going to go.  We have sandbags to place in front of the garage door in case of high rains.  The generator is on standby.  We are ready to hunker down for the duration.  We should know better where it will land tomorrow when it will be three days out.

I am still a little anxious, but I’m feeling a little better after seeing the latest hurricane models which predict it will go west of us.  We could still be in for a rough period if it doesn’t go to far west of us.

It was three years ago today, that Katrina hit the Gulf Coast.  Talk about deja vu.  I don’t like to even think about Katrina anymore.

Keep the Gulf Coast in your thoughts and prayers.

    I don’t blame you. I just saw on the weather for the local news that it’s still a waiting game… I will be thinking about you! Hope it steers clear of you!

    Thanks, everybody for the kind thoughts. We have prepared as much as possible, so all we can do is wait it out.
