Speaking of weather..Gustav

Well, I just saw a report on the local news here in Lafayette. They're putting everybody here on alert to be sure everyong watches where this storm is aiming to go.
Anybody else living in the Gulf Coast states??
A guy at the mall last night told me that if we start hearing them say the storm is coming into Vermillion Bay, more than likely we'll be evacuated.
We have our eye on your Gustav!

star Gustav

My husband says we will "head for the hills" if Gustav comes this way!!
This might not be a bad thing in that respect.
We never get time off for anything. So, hopefully we can go visit family. My family and my husband's family live out of state.
Just don't know what we'll come back to. KWIM?
I know this and I don't mean this to be ugly at all, but I honestly think if there's another disaster like Katrina or Rita - our family will be on its own.
I don't know how dependable our government is. I do know our governor, who I really, really, really like - says he's staying here in LA if the hurricanes hit. Because he says he is here for the State of Louisiana. I appreciate that so much.
Anyway!! I guess we'll see what happens!!!

Faithmomof6 - it really is terrifying to think of anything like Katrina happening again. The whole country - well, I guess the whole world - watched the deaths and destruction after Katrina. There is a lot of fear that the levees have not been made safer in the three years since that tragedy.

I don't understand it -- the entire country of Holland (the Netherlands) is way below sea level, and surrounded by levees to keep the ocean out. Couldn't we have asked them how to do it?

If something is working for someone else, by ALL MEANS please ask what it is they're doing right and learn from it.
Those levees still aren't strong enough. I've heard too many reports about them to think they'll hold. I feel so bad for those precious people.
I love and care about people. I just hate to think of New Orleans being flooded again due to those levees failing. I don't know why they didn't fix them correctly. They need to be torn down and rebuilt with quality.
I pray that the people will evacuate this time. ((((Hugs to my New Orleans friends and neighbors))))

It looks like with all the money they make from Madi Gras they could afford to fix the levee's. That should be TOP priority.
