Well, at least we're stocked up on beef jerky.

We managed to dodge the worst impact of Hurricane Isaac. I wish I could say the same for folks west of us.  Having lived through a few hurricanes and tropical storms, I really sympathize with the victims of Isaac.  People are still battling the storm and they are in our thoughts and prayers.

Our little panhandle, on the other hand, only had a lot of wind and rain.  There are a few scattered areas of flooding, but for the most part, we made it through completely fine. 

The surf along the Gulf of Mexico was incredible.  It looked like someone took a big ole' spoon and just stirred it up with water lapping onto roadways, boardwalks, and roadways.  The water out there is powerful and the huge waves are a reminder that it should be respected.

On a lighter note, we are fully equipped for the next storm or any other emergency which requires canned tuna, chicken, soup and bottled water. Oh, and let's not forget peanut butter.  I believe anyone could survive for weeks on end with a jar of peanut butter and a spoon. (At least, that's what I tell myself when I eat it from the jar.)

What about y'all?  Any of you dealing with the storm?  We'll keep you in our prayers.

I'm glad you guys are ok! I was looking at a map today, but I couldn't really figure out what was happening where (not to mention that I don't really know where you live, exactly - & aren't you glad of that?).

We MIGHT get some rain here in central Ohio - and that's what I'm praying for. A night gully washer all weekend would be fabulous.

Um NICE, not night - although all night would be great too...

So glad you guys made it through ok. We're kinda living on pnut butter sandwiches right now too while the kitchen is torn apart. Good stuff that pnut butter!
