Rita Report

Rita has come and gone here in north Louisiana, and we were left basically unscathed.  We had 50 mph wind gusts, white caps on the lake and lots of small tree limbs and leaves flying, but no downed trees.  Our power blinked a dozen times but was never lost entirely.  We even dodged the flooding that was predicted, while getting 3-4 inches of badly needed rain.  This morning  (Sunday) we still have a constant wind from all directions, but the sun is out and the cleanup coming right along.  Others were not so lucky, however.  Let's hope the rest of Louisiana can get back to normal before long, as well.

Hi Jennifer,
I am so thankful that you came through Rita relatively unscathed. It could have been much worse for many of us. Here in Central Texas we had gusty winds and ominous looking clouds but not a drop of rain! My daughter lives in southeastern LA and lost power for about 18 hours, but minor damage only. We have much to be thankful for. May God Bless.

It's good to know that you made it through the storm okay, too, Sharon. My daughter in southwestern Mississippi, above New Orleans, had wind and rain but no real damage, either. Big sigh of relief all around. Until next time...
