    Everything is fine here in SWFL Tink. We weathered the storm with no issues. Sounds like you came through just as well.

    I guess you can look at the silver lining of this storm is that it will provide some much needed rain in some the of drought stricken areas of the plains and midwest as it continues north over land.

    I have nieces in Baton Rouge, and they are well prepared. The wind is there but no rain yet. Everyone is just waiting, and as prepared as they can possibly be.

    When we were there one year ago, July for one niece's wedding, there were still homes with the blue tarps on their roofs.
    Baton Rouge is where I am Tink! talk about...wait for it...A Small World!

    lol yeah...the strain of the storm is cracking me...

    Kept in touch with them through much of the day and night. They were without power, and on a boil water order. They also lost their direct TV, but do have a weather radio. We're worried about flooding given their location.

    Haven't heard any more from them as of this morning. It's a big storm and is moving slowly. That always involves much rain and the potential for real flooding.

    'Catz, I didn't know you were in Baton Rouge! It is indeed a small world. Hope all is well with you, too.

    They are saying that Isaac is going to produce more rain than Katrina.

    They have power at one house, but not at the other niece's apartment. There is some talk about flooding and the river? I'm not sure I got it all (static on the line).

    Anyway, they are safe, and that is what matters to me.
