Still Watching the Weather
It appears that Gustav was no Katrina. Thanks be to God. I have a couple of good friends whose families live in Houma who have not heard from their loved ones, but chances are good that all is well.
However Hanna is looking threatening to the Georgia coast. You have to understand that Georgia has not been hit by a hurricane in over a century. St. Simon's Island and Epworth by the Sea are right in the cross-hairs. I have too many friends and family who live in this area -- some of which have already moved inland to Atlanta.
I have a feeling that a hurricane would be devastating to the Georgia Barrier Islands -- you can compare the way the houses are built. There are few houses that are raised on pilings. Time will tell.
