Hurricane Gustav-last ditch effort preparations

We have taped, sand-bagged, charged, iced, moved, hauled, secured, stored, decided, prepared, bathed, washed, gased, and bought everything that we can think of...now 12 hours, $500.00, countless decisions, blisters, sweat, and tears later...we are exhausted mentally and physically. It is now 9:30pm Sunday night--the wind and rain have begun and our parish is currently under a TORNADO WATCH. Here we go......

Jack secured the swings on the swingset


Generator is in place by the living room window where we will place the window unit A/C when the time comes

I taped all the windows across the front of the house; I believe this is more for peace of mind that actual benefit, but we'll see

As I taped the windows, Harley taped his bicycle in preparation for "Hurricame Gustop"


Please keep us in your prayers in the upcoming hours and days to come...
