Hurricane Isaac

So much for school! We spent 2 1/2 days at home last week due to Hurricane Isaac. Seven years ago we endured Katrina, which was the worst thing ever! After Katrina we went without water for 14 days and power for 7 days. Talk about hot and nasty! Needless to say, everyone around here went into PANIC mode last weekend preparing for another hurricane. We were so fortunate in our part of the state. Katrina brought strong winds and tornados, but Isaac mainly dumped a LOT of rain! And when I say a lot, what I really mean is I couldn't remember what the sun looked like! :)

Here are some clouds during a slight rain break.

Here is a close up of my hometown of Laurel, MS. We are the blue dot.

Roxy was LAZY all through the rain. Here she is resting at the back door while the rain pours.

Randy and I were stir crazy after 2 days at home. So we rode around town to look at more rain. We picked up a raincoat for Jack. :)

Our power only went out Wednesday night and praise the Lord the water never stopped flowing! We were very fortunate.

I am so thankful that Isaac was not another Katrina for us; however, there are many on the gulf coast who were not as fortunate. Praying for those down south!

Have a great LONG Labor Day weekend!
