We're far enough north that all we got was strong winds and rain. Radio, phone and email went out Monday afternoon, but they were all back up by Tuesday morning. The only hurricane-related problems we've had is that there were shortages of food and diapers Tuesday and this afternoon Tupelo ran out of gas. The surrounding areas started to run out as well. I HATE "just in time" delivery. It never is. But we spent our first married year in Mobile and learned there's nothing odd about keeping a six-month supply of canned goods in the house, so we do. We also learned to stay out of hurricane zones. One year on the coast was enough, thank you.
The problem is that Brighteyes has come down with a nasty stomach virus and wants constant mothering. I really don't have time to post much right now, but I'll try to put stories up when I can.
Our prayers go out to all those who have been afflicted by Katrina. Keep well, and keep your courage up.
