Okay, for those of you that have put 2+2 together, yes, this is the same weekend that Katrina hit 3 years ago. The irony of it all is insane. My dad's on another business trip, but this time he's just in CA and not HA. With Katrina, dad came in the Sunday (just barely) before she hit. Both Kat and Gustav are making landfall on a Monday. And this time instead of mom and dad having a houseful, we are. It's absolutely fine, but the entire situation has given me an eerie sense of deja vu (though we had NO idea what was about to happen 3 years ago). We should be fine, and we'll still get tropical storm winds, but we feel confident that things will be secure. I'm very thankful that we live so close to my mom now that dad is out of town and Erin and Gabe have gone home. And between her house and ours, we should have what we need. Our only issue is that we don't have enough beds for everyone! Air mattresses it is! Hopefully, we won't be on the front porch this time!
