.......before Gustav. Yesterday evening we enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the first bands of rain and wind. The boys played under the drips from the roof and pretended to fish with the fern leaves. The worst luckly didn't happen as forecasted.:) We have gotten a good bit of rain, with lots more to come. The power flashed several time during the night...but never completely went out. The winds at times during the night were about 40- 50 mph or so. Still made us a little nervous with all the trees around. There are quite a few trees down around our town, but so glad that things are not worse!!!
