The wind is gusting, and the rain is falling, so I guess that means Gustav is here. I'm sure this is not the worst of it.
I picked up a few small limbs this morning when the wind started, and I'm keeping an eye on all of these large trees in my yard and my neighbor's yard, too, since their limbs often fall into my yard. I have one huge limb down in the back; it fell about a week ago after another rainstorm. I decided to wait until Gustav did its damage before I began sawing that one up.
I just hope the electricity holds out and the water drains away.
Batten down the hatches! Anchors Away!
I think I'm going to sleep in the hall closet tonight. The rain doesn't scare me, but the wind does.
I love my tall, old trees, but, when the wind gusts up to 30mph, they're frightening. Reminds me of the trees in the Haunted Forest in "The Wizard of Oz."
