Hurricane Gustav !


Hi Everyone!

I won't be posting for the next two days (Monday and Tuesday) in USA times, until the hurricane are gone in Louisiana. If we end up with power outage and tree fallen and damaged then it will take a week or so for everything to be back up again. Lot of New Orleans are already evacuated and that included Morgan City and other cities.

As we waited for landfall, I will have my computer turn off. But please keep all of us in Louisiana in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks!

First I want to thanks everyone for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. We are blessed to have so many good friends who very generous to help us during these hurricane times. I'm thankful for friends like you :)

When Hurricane Gustav hit Louisiana, IT hit Louisiana hard. In my city, we had trees fallen on the power line and causes power outage....everywhere. Even some part of the roof were ripped off and made hole too. And traffic lights were out and some traffic light pole were moved in another direction during the Hurricane Gustav blow. Some places took a week to get power restore back. Other took two weeks or four weeks. Many people who were without generator, were feeling hot in their houses. When I say hot, I mean HOT! Windows and doors were open during the days and night. And some business were not open for a week or so, either.

Now, we are getting our power light restore back. And some places are allowed to return back to work. School won't be open until next week (because some school does not have their power restore back yet). In New Orleans, about an hour and 30 minute away from where I live, I think they hit it hard too. But last I heard from my relatives they are fine :) So Louisiana is trying to get back to normal as we can.

Meanwhile, we keeping eye watch on Hurricane IKE that might cross between Louisiana coast and Texas. We won't know until this Wednesday or Thursday. Please prays for us!

And thanks again for everyone prayers and generous during this time :)
