Personal Update — RV Contest, Gustav

September 1, 2008 · 0 comments

Update, 9/3: Back online! 95% of my parish (county) is without power but we’re among the lucky ones — not only do we have power but also cable/internet and cellular service. One large tree branch grazed the house and damaged the storm gutter, lots of down limbs, but otherwise no damage at all. We were lucky. Food, gas, and other supplies are scarce, water is on a “boil order,” and we remain under a curfew to deter criminals. It’s like a combat zone. Please join me in keeping my fellow Louisiana residents in your thoughts and prayers.
THANK YOU to those of you who joined Wellness360 with my link this weekend in an effort to help me win an RV for my mom! No idea when they’ll announce the winner but I’ll let you know when I know! I hope you’ll stick around Wellness360 for a while — they’re doing triple points today, and they pay you in real cash quarterly just for doing wellness-related activities like charting your vitals and logging your exercise and food intake.
As my long-time readers know, I’m a resident of south Louisiana. I live in the first suburb of Baton Rouge to the west. We’re getting the outer bands of Hurricane Gustav right now and will lose power any minute, and public officials are preparing us for long-term outages. If my sites aren’t updated for a while, that will be why.
I’m very grateful for your support. Please join me in sending prayers or good thoughts to my neighbors closer to the coast, who are no doubt going to suffer tremendous damage as a result of this storm. Thanks, and I’ll be back soon!
