The 3rd Anniversary of Katrina today.......and preparing for another major storm!!
Today we are preparing for another storm on the Anniversary of Katrina. It's been 3 years ago....that we will never forget. Memories will always be with us. Mississippi and Louisianna is getting nervous about the storm of Gustav. I know each one of you have heard many stories about Katrina....that it will always will be remembered. I don't have pictures....of the Katrina storm....I did not have a camera that work at the time. My families has pictures but I didn't think about getting it and post it....I have mention about our experience during Katrina.....My daughter was planning the most important day of her life....Her Wedding Day on Sept. 24th. Three weeks later aftier the storm "Katrina"...We went on with the wedding. It's was Beautiful! You can view the wedding pics and story on my older posts. We did not have electricity for 15 days.....It was HOT! No communication.....Cell phone did not work..Cell phone tower was knock down..It's was like a "War Zone" here.....We had 26 tornadoes touch down in our county......The wind gust up 100 mph winds and plus. Lots of rain.....Trees and power line down....It's was devastating! As you go more down South to Mississippi Gulfcoast and New Orlean.....It was just devastating! I had relatives here from Mississippi Gulfcoast.....they were blessed that they just had damages and their house was still there....There were many many people that came to their place and their home was gone...... Go on over to Diane at A picture is worth a 1,000 words http://diane1876.blogspot.com/She posts "Show and Tell" Friday of 3rd Anniversary story of Hurricane Katrina. Diane live close by me....about 1 hrs North of my town. She has lots of pictures.....Keep us in your prayers.....I don't know if Mississippi Gulfcoast and New Orleans can go through this again.....( I don't know if I can) From Texas to Florida....keep us in prayers. Tropical Gustav will become a Category 3 Hurricane. And we are watching Tropical Hanna too! You all have a wonderful weekends... :) Kathy
