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.
