Happy Labor Day!

It's 10 a.m. and we still have power. It's blinked a few times so I figured I make a post now! Hurricane Gustav made landfall about an hour ago. We started getting the first band about 9 p.m. last night but after that it went back to being calm til about 5 a.m. this moring. Now we are getting a good bit of wind with some heavy gusts, I'd say 35 mph gusts. We are under a Tornado watch, and they say it will get much worse this afternoon. It looks as though the eye will pass just a tad west of Baton Rouge. Darn it though, I've always wanted to be in the eye because I hear it's awesome!
Not a fun Labor Day holiday here. Good thing I didn't plan a beach trip this weekend!
I hope you all have much better weather and if you're BBQ'ing have a burger for me =)
