Watching this thing, they keep saying it may hit us, the worst part is the packing.

Yeah, I hear about Gustav.  Heard it might hit New Orleans with the same force as Katrina did.  How's the Levee's?   Hope you have a bathing suit or a boat tethered in the yard.

If you need a place to stay JP, head up and over to E. TN... we've got a spare bedroom and a couch we can offer you... I won't lie, the couch isn't very comfortable.

JP you and yours will be in my prayers.  Hopefully the storms will somehow run out of steam or change direction.  Have fun in the country though!  Jody

Thanks everyone for the kind thoughts and offers!!!

My wife had surgery today, she could have rescheduled but we decided (mostly her) to go forward with it, she's doing surprisingly well.

If the hurricane comes we will evacuate to our property with our three dogs.

Thanks again everyone for the kind words.

As a matter of fact, I'll pray for all of you guys who are facing this storm. I think God hears my prayers better if they are for somebody else and not about me.

your friend,
john

Ok, I will keep you guys updated but the latest is that a high pressure system will kick out, allowing Gus to go further west, hope it does, keeping fingers crossed.

Thanks again for the kind words and proposals and I hope to meet several of our forum members in the near future, still on to go to Bud's on the 11th as long as the weather cooperates.

Yes, Annette, Big Daddy, we are having a small get together including Dallas, Allen Buckley (who will be showing us some queen rearing tricks). I'm not gonna eat chitlins though, unless Bud twists both my arms, feet, ankles, nose, etc...


This morning things look more probable we will get something from Gustav, tonite/tomorrow morning will be decision time, besides I hate to drive in heavy traffic, with three dogs, nonetheless!!!

Probably gonna get the mandatory evacuation order if not tomorrow night, early Sunday.

We will most likely be on the road Sunday morning unless something decisive occurs but uncertainty is on the menu, just hope we have a house to come back to.
