Still waiting...


Hurricane Gustav is steadily making his way to the Gulf Coast.

Alfred gets to come home tonight but must be at the armory first thing in the morning to help out after the storm. So he won't be with us during the worst of it. His unit may be able to stay here in our area, but then again, they could be called to help out in Mississippi or Louisiana if needed. It's too early to tell yet.

The not knowing and the waiting is the hard part.

We're praying for you! It's going to be a long 24 hours but you'll make it. It's bad for you that Alfred will have to be gone but at least you can take comfort that he'll be out helping others who are really going to need help bad.

Please keep us posted so we'll know ya'll did ok!

Praying for your d/h along with my own. You're a tough cookie, and I will follow your lead, this is my first time without mine...and I'm worried beyond sick. :(

I've been watching the news constantly for updates, I really hope it isn't as bad as Katrina but that's not what they're preparing for but at least they're preparing this time. I'm so sorry it affects your husband though but what important work he does!
