Stormy start to the week

It’s been a blustery weekend as we watch Tropical Storm Isaac make its way through Haiti, Cuba, the Keys and now working its way toward land via the Gulf in a track similar to Hurricane Katrina  7 years ago.  Fortunately, it is by no means as strong as Katrina, but nerve-wracking nonetheless for everyone in its path.

When we moved here 8 years ago, we had a string of Hurricanes….4 in a row within a 6 week period.  To this day, I still don’t sleep well when we have a bad storm come through.  I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like for the residents of Mississippi and Louisiana who suffered through the destruction of Katrina.  Then again, weather is weather.  We can’t do anything about it.  Just make preparations, safe choices and hope for the best, right?  So, we will move on through our day today.  Rain, wind, bluster.  School, work.  See what the next few days bring.
