We are OK

We just wanted to let everybody know that we are OK. Baton Rouge was severely affected by Gustav. Most of the city does not have power and might not have power for several more days, maybe weeks.
At my apartment we were extremely lucky to get power back within 24 hours. However we have no internet. At the moment I'm posting from my office on the LSU campus. Most of the campus also lost power, but some buildings got power back yesterday and we have intermittent internet on campus.
Thanks for all the good wishes. We were pretty lucky. We lost a lot of tiles from the roof and it is leaking in the bedroom and living room, but it is not too bad. At least we have power!
Once the internet is more reliable I will post some pictures. I'm not sure how much you see on the news, but Baton Rouge have a lot of damage. There are long lines for gas, ice, food and tarps. More than 90% of residents are still without power.
Well I will post more once we are "connected' again.

*woo hoo*

We had been worried about you when we saw all what Gustav had done to LA. We are glad that you made it thru OK and are fareing as well as can be expected.

Momma is now worried about IKE, for some reason her hurricane radar inside her head has gone off and she thinks that this one is going to be like Gustav. We are not worried about Hanna...although we feel really bad it is going to hit someone up in SC or NC tomorrow evening. It will be about 70 miles off our coast in the morning.

*sigh*

WE don't like hurricane season...
