PostSubject: Hurricane Season----on the lookout!   Wed Aug 27, 2008 1:16 pm

Well I think we may need some advanced prayers for us folks in the gulf coast. Gustav is lurking and may be making us around Houston a visit by Tuesday. Here we are just getting used to this crazy school schedule and now it may be interupted. Just please pray this doesnt turn into a frenzy of panic. Alot of people prepare in advance, but you just never know how bad it can get. It was terribly hard to find tea and sugar in stores after Rita. Alot of things like that are produced in Louisana.
Thanks for your prayers and concerns. ( I might just head to Rhonda's house in Arkansas!)

I am praying that Gustav stays away from where you are, Gin.

How is it going Gin? Everything ok?

I was just saying on Emilyanne's thread that I have a daycare family who left for Florida on Friday and I've been praying for their safety. They had showed on the news that the authorities were turning cars away from Louisianna, directing them North! OhMy

So far everything is great here. (I'm 30 miles North of Houston, toward the east) We will start to get rain and winds starting tomorrow morning. We've just spent some time this afternoon moving trash cans and any other items that might cause damage if picked up by the winds. People in and south of Houston always have a BIG problem with flooding so please remember them. When Hurrican Allison came through it rained for 3 days straight and flooded bottom floor hospitals ect.
Our kids are out of school tomorrow for Labor Day and may have to miss Tuesday. Just depends on the flooding and damage.
Lousiana has been chosen once again for the biggest hit from this, so pray that the levee holds the surge of the storm. Those folks have just barely began to put things "back on their mantels."
Thanks for all your prayers. Its nice to know their is alot of people praying for our safety. Smiles.....Gin :thankyou2:

I'll certainly be praying for you and everyone affected by this. It's awful that this is happening to everyone again. BTW, nothing like that happens up here so feel free to join us.

I was thinking the same thing, Cheryl. It's part of the reason I don't want to leave Michigan---nothing major, (at this point anyway) ever seems to happen here!

I hope all is still going ok Gin. I'm still praying! Thank God Louisianna didn't get hit too hard. Well, it's still bad, but we can thank God it wasn't nearly as bad as Katrina.

Ok guys.....I've gased up the cars and stocked up on water, can goods ect. Looks like our area will be on the dirty side of the storm. I've got a dead 100 ft tree right outside my front door and with 100 plus mph winds it might not stay put.
My neighbor and I will probably camp out in her living room, as she seems to have less trees in her yard.
Schools everywhere are closing, but ours is a bit stubborn. We even have a football game tonight! Hope someone gets their head about them! My kid might not be blowing his horn there tonight....!
Keep all us again in your prayers. This is so messing with my grocery budget!!!!
I'll update as soon as I can. Smiling......GIN :titanic:

Gin!! Sorry to hear you're getting hit with it! I can't even imagine how scary it must be! Sorry to hear about your poor tree too. No Prayers are going up for you...keep in touch with us if you can.

Prayers continue going out your way, Gin.

I don't understand school officials sometimes. What's the point of risking the lives of children? Just so they don't have to do a make-up day at the end of the year?? mad

Take care, and keep us posted as you're able!

That truly is about the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard too, Savannah. I mean, it's a hurricane for crying out loud!

Know that I'm thinking of you, Gin. The storm was due to hit CC and I figured we would get rain from that. We live 50 miles southeast of SA. But now they say it will hit further north and I don't need the wind but I am praying for some rain. We're going to moving stuff around in our yard tonight.

Be safe! Love

Hey everyone....so far we just have a HOT breeze blowing, but within a few hours it will start to pick up. I am exhausted already just trying to brace for all that might happen. Today I'm cooking, doing laundry and keeping the dishes clean so in case of a power outage we wont need that much right away.
My dog is wondering what is going on....she just knows she's taking a trip to the vet when I got the carrier out. Looked at me so worried!
I will keep everyone posted when I can. This storm is huge and looks like there will be lots of wind and rain.
My husband was off work last week so went back in to do an emergency shutdown (JCPenney) . He says all is secure unless the roof caves! NICE!
Keep us in your prayers....I know you are. Its great to have friends like all of you.
Smiles....Gin

Thanks for the update, Gin. I was just reading about the hurricane on Yahoo news. Still praying for all of you! How are you holding up over there Misti?

Update: Well, they showed Ike on the news and it looks like he is going to hit Galveston. The last weather planes that went into the storm reported 40' waves, so, unfortunately, they are saying Galveston will be under water, probably about 9' deep!

As for our area, we are expecting rain (not sure how much) and winds, about 40 mph. That is what I am worried about.

David and the guys got mostly everything that needed putting up done so hopefully it won't be scattered to the four winds. It is ironic because last year when we had a small twister came thru (the one that uprooted a big tree in the front yard--it is still there, maybe this one will carry the remains away!) and our dog, Lucky's, carrier was under the trailer and we never found it.

We we have an arbor/archway out front. It's got the 4 posts in the ground and a cow panel bent over against the posts. Come to find out, its not secured. And, I've got a flower growing on it, a plant growing on it and my hummingbird feeder on it. We will probably come back to find it gone. In 40 mph winds, it won't have a chance.

I've got to get busy in a bit, packing what we need to take with us and bathing the dogs since they are going, too.

We are heading to David's mother's house tonight and will probably check up on things sometime tomorrow afternoon. I am nervous to come back and see the damage and I'm hoping & praying that it is minimal.

So please pray for us, that the damage will only be minimal. Thanks everyone! And I'll check back in probably Saturday night.

If there is any damage, I will take some pics & post them.

Please just keep us, Galveston, Gin and all the area in your thoughts and prayers.
