Well, I have tried to get on here and type three or four times and each time I do, the power blinks. So, I'll try once more. Since the storm moved more eastward, we were not in the path as predicted, so it's just a lot of wind gusts. My trees seem to be holding up. The pictures they are sending in from the MS, LA, and AL Coast are frightening. I called a friend of mine in Hattiesburg and she said her neighbors roof had blown away. That was about 5 hours ago, and Katrina is just now hitting Hattiesburg. My grandfather and all my mom's family lives there, so we are still a little worried.
Cara and Alex, I hope both of your DH's are able to stay safe during all of this. Cara, has your family heard anything about their neighborhood yet? Tanya, I hope you hear from your BIL soon.
Good luck to anyone else who is out there.
