Hurricane Isaac on it's way

*UPDATE:  Now Isaac has been labeled a Hurricane*

There's a tropical storm* in the gulf and it's predicted to become a hurricane and hit landfall by tonight.

It's ironic that we made it to Nebraska just in time for the massive wildfires and now we're back for our first hurricane this season.

We spent the day yesterday picking up outside and clearing everything off the porch.

This morning we decided to enjoy the calm before the storm, dancing before the rain starts, playing with our friends, eating donuts, and loving the sunshine.

We have a generator this year in case the power goes out and we stocked up on water and sandwich bread.   Joel informed me that all a cajun needs to make it through a storm is vienna sausage and flashlights.  So I guess that means we're pretty much set.

There's nothing like a hurricane to make you want to clean your house.  Maybe it's the thought that you're going to be stuck inside for a few days in bad weather and you want to make it as comfortable as possible.   I've got massive loads of laundry to fold and put away and of course I'm procrastinating at the moment.  The last hurricane that plowed through here we evacuated to Jackson, Mississippi, and a tree fell on our house.  It was ten days before we had power and were able to move back in.  This storm isn't predicted to be as strong, though, and while I'm sure there will be some flooding, we feel like it's safe to stay home.

Now I better go attack that laundry pile before it turns into a national emergency....

We're in Charleston SC and we don't always get hit, but I know what it's like when hurricanes come... except for maybe the vienna sausages part.
Stay safe, friend!
