Random thoughts while waiting for Gustav

As the storm approaches, Denise and I feel we are far enough away (famous last words), but we will still feel some of the effects. If needed, we have another possible shelter at my sister’s house a couple hours north to fall back on… We are looking at lots of thunderstorms, possible flash flooding and tropical storm winds... We have kept our car topped up as gas shortages are also happening here in NE Texas… The hotel made us sign an agreement that basically says they can kick us out whenever they need too… The last time I was here was in 1989 with my parents. 19 years! Its little d’s first trip to Texas but, unfortunately, instead of sightseeing we are spending the days inside writing and watching everybody’s favorite Weather Channel weatherman, Jim Cantore. When you see Jim show up, you know you’re in trouble. Heavy rain and winds are on tap for this evening and through the night until Tuesday morning.

It's Monday evening and so far, so good. We have electricity at the moment and allegedly the worst is passing in the next 12 hours, but it looks like we're going to be ok. Mostly rain. The challenge will be going back to Louisiana with the flooding in various parishes. Thanks to everyone who are keeping us in their thoughts and prayers. A New Yorker, living in Virginia, working in Cajun country, on the run in The Lone Star state. Crazy.
