Gustav Update


Luckily Gustav slowed down to a category 1 storm before it hit land down here. About 35,000 evacuees from New Orleans have camped out in Jackson hotels and shelters. Although we had some winds yesterday, there was no damage in our area. It's basically been raining constantly.

Some good has come out of the Faye and Gustav rains. I planted these bulbs in March and I figured they were duds. But lo and behold a few flowers have bloomed! I don't remember the name, but they are pretty. I'm hoping the purple flowers will come up as well.

In any case, it's back to work this morning. I hope everyone had a great Labor Day. It's nice to stay at home, even if it is only to watch the rain coming down.

on a entendu à la radio française, que Gustav était moins violent que prévu, cela devait être quand même impressionnant ?

we heard the French radio that Gustav was less violent than expected, it would still be impressive?

Glad to hear that you are all okay, I would imagine that there will be plenty who would welcome the rain.

It's nice to see a "fresh face" after all that rain.

One nice thing with rainy weather is that it helps me sleep.
