Spared from Gustav's wrath

Well Gustav was good to us and we had little damage--picket fence got a beating and tree limbs every where. We lost all our food in the frig and freezer, so will be eating tuna and vienna sausage for a week-lol.
It turned just as the eye went over us and I slept through most of it. I know those further south got hit hard and Joyce at the Secret Gardner were hit by the worse side of the storm. My nephew in Houma where Gustav came in, lost the roof of his house and his shed got into a fight with a tree. Now we are watching Ike and Josephine. September storms are usually the worst, even though Katrina hit on the 29th of August. I think we will do like most people and leave the windows boarded up for a while.
Other than the heat and humidity, we did just fine. We'll be eating less until we can replace everything, including condiments and such. There were lots of tornadoes reported and one was over us but moved east---Thank God!
I did make a couple of short videos and if I can figure out how to link to them, I will post it. I'm not a member of You Tube, so it can't be done that way.
I hope everyone living in the south here made out okay. Going to check on some blogs, then back to work cleaning up when Al returns from work. Have a wonderful day. Blessings to all. Pat

Glad to know you are ok. I hope the next storms bypass you (and everyone else) as well.

Thank you so much my friends. We are keeping our eyes open for Ike---they say it will hit the East Coast, but from the 7am update, it looks like it could go over the tip of Florida and enter the gulf.
We probably needed to diet a little anyway-NOT! But God always takes care of our needs, so we will find a way. Love and Hugs, Pat
