Now in Destin, Florida. Took 10 hours to get here from New Orleans (usually a 3 1/2 hour drive). Windy but actually nice. Gustav is going to be really, really mean to my lovely city. Wish us all luck.

Guess what --- Hubby and I sitting outside at a Hooters (of all places) because they have wifi. Too funny.,

Lol! Great news!

Thanks for telling us. NOW if we can safely get the others out of harm's way. Have you heard anything on patients in hospitals and residents of elderly care centers?

Whew! So glad to hear from you. My husband's nephew and his wife live in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, depending on what courts their cases are being heard in (attorneys) but they are in Hawaii just now. You're the only other person I know that was in harms way and now you're safe too. Yea!

An American restaurant chain famous for their spicy buffalo wings and scantily clad female staff.

In church this morning the minister said one of the church members has relatives living in New Orleans and that they couldn't get gas to get out so they were having to stay and ride it out. Anyone else hear anything about no gas now for those wanting to leave?

So glad to hear from you and that you are OK, Bbear.Stay safe.

Good news, Beth! Take care.

So far so good. Loose ships in the Industrial canal is a bad thing. Damned Coast Guard promised they were doing to secure everything. Two barges and a Naval ship loose. The water in the canal is already up to the top.

Hannah is going up the Atlantic coast; everyone up that way be careful.

The Mississippi is flowing backwards, weird.

The Gulf of Mexico here in Destin looks like the Pacific in California. Waves are amazing. And....they have closed the beaches. The surfers are miffed.

Thanks for all your support. We are currently at "Bad Ass Coffee Shop" From Hooters to asses; too funny.
