Well, tomorrow we will be leaving for Texas. Dh has decided it is just too dangerous to stay for Hurricane Gustav.We have never left for a hurricane before, and I really don't want to leave this time. The reason he is so worried is because we have several very large trees around our house, and the storm is predicted to hit at a Cat 3 at least, if not a Cat 4. This is like 120+ mph winds. Also, if the course stays the same, we will take a direct hit. Dh said it is too risky to stay with the chance of these trees falling on our house. Our best friends live in Katy, Texas, which is west of Houston. So, we will be staying at their house. It will probably be an enjoyable trip. I am just praying that when it is all over, there isn't an oak tree through the center of my house : ( Pray for the people in the coastal parishes of Louisiana, this thing is a monster, and it really doesn't look good. I will be able to get online. So, I will keep everyone updated.
