Mimicks Spongebob narrarator: "Twelve Hours Lateh..."
We still have power! Whoohoo!
Prayers have definitely been answered here; Gustav hit us as a high-Category-2 (110 mph) -- That's only 5 mph below a Category 3, but still, WAY, WAY better than the Category 5 they were predicting at this time yesterday!
So far, so good here.
Everything has either been brought inside or is tied down outside.
Our dogs quickly and gladly came inside the garage to get out of the storm.
Our cat, on the other hand, decided to go to a "hurricane party" (or something) somewhere last night.
We tried 3 or 4 times to call him in, but he never showed up.
This morning, as soon as I opened the door, he ran in bawling angry. He was soaked! And quite miffed, I must say.
Serves him right; next time maybe he'll take this a little a more seriously. ;>)
I stayed up until 1 am watching the weather reports and checking the online radars, but finally I could not hold my eyes open any longer.
If possible, I will update more later.
Thanks for all your prayers!
