Nothing going on. The winds slowed. Rain stopped. Very quiet here.
We are under a hurricane watch and tornado watch but radar shows activity west of us, not much here.

I am praying for Louisiana and Hancock County(Mississippi). I don't know what is going on in Louisiana. I am worried. Big hearty wind gusts blew here. Wished I had a hand-held wind gust meter to catch the speed of several spectacular blows.

We are under a curfew until 5 AM tomorrow. People will get itchy to get out of shelters and homes to see what is going on. I had good company today with Mr.C. and LD who watched Netflix with me while I sewed. I'm surprised we have power.

Thank you for your prayers. Let's see what we can do to help the storm affected in the next few days.

I'll check in again later today.

I'm so glad you have power. Re: the wind gusts, I saw the video of the Weather Channel guy in Gulfport, trying to stay on his feet!
More hugs and prayers.

Caught CNN a couple of hours ago, and just now - it's down to Cat 1: 30.4N 92.0W. Hope that's good for you - but still problems for other folks. And now, of course, there's Hurricane Hanna over the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Will be praying and watching, now and in the morning (2355 here)
