Made It Though Gustav

Hurricane Gustav has now weakened to a tropical depression over Louisiana. No real difficulties with Gustav in my neck of the woods. The constant tornado warnings were scary, but I think the worst is now over. It sounds like coastal residents had 12+ hours without power and some experienced flooding. Those of us inland were largely spared even those inconveniences. It appears that only about 2,000 people in my area lost power.

Some area gas stations are out of gas, and I expect many local businesses to remain closed today. Probably worth a call to make sure where you want to go is open before heading out.
