'nother Hurricane

I wanted to post this while I had one thin minute. I am getting thrown out of my house, yet again.

I owe several people emails--okay, I owe a LOT of people emails. I will write back tonight when it's safe for me to come home.


Gustav is still plowing toward the Gulf of Mexico. It's too early to make predictions, but we are a little worried it'll hit the Texas coast.

Hurricane Rita knocked us flat on our butts in 2005. It took us well over a year to return to some level of normalcy.

So now we wait and watch for Gustav and pray he veers off or fizzles out. I am grateful we have excellent weather tracking tools. At least we get plenty of warning.

--sigh. That's all I need on top of everything else. Another hurricane.

Fingers crossed for you... Hope Gustav dies a quick death.

Kaz Augustin said...

Hang in there, M. That which doesn't destroy us, and all that.

Maria Zannini said...

Thanks, Marianne. From your lips to God's ear. :o)

Maria Zannini said...

Hey, Kaz!

How does that go? That which doesn't destroy me gray hair.

Yeah, that's it. *g*

Haven't seen today's Gustav projections yet, but I think he'll power-up - gulf just too hot not to.

After most here waited for the last minute for Fay preps, and faced long lines and short tempers, people here are getting ready early and we're not officially in Gustav's path.

Hope Gustav avoids you there in TX, the last thing any house seller needs is a wrecked house.

Also hope your eyes are all recovered from your surgeries.

We'll get some of it even if it heads for New Orleans. We are too close.

Rain is okay. It's the winds that kill us.

Ref: eyes
Would you believe it? I have to go through one MORE surgery. They promised this one would be it. Apparently, I have misbehaving eyes.
