Getting very windy out there. We spent the morning stocking up on stuff — although we still had the water and stuff we bought when it looked like Gustav was coming this way — and bringing everything inside. All that’s left on the back porch is the grill (too big) and the plants (too many). They’re snugged up against the house, well under the roof.
I don’t expect we’ll take much damage, really. I do expect we’ll lose power for a while. I’ve set up Twitter for mobile updates. I’m far more worried about my Houston relatives and friends.
In the meantime, we have a new ice cream maker and a pound of strawberries. Catch you on the other side!
