So...Gustav ended up being fairly anti-climatic for us here on the MS Gulf Coast. However, I'll take the prep and protection over the devastation and utter loss. We only lost power for about 3-5 minutes. I used the downtime today to update my MySpace, if you're interested. I used yesterday to make a verb complements powerpoint. Fun times. We're off tomorrow so the administrators can assess the damage at the schools. I assume we'll go back Wednesday; I'll have to put my room back in order. The rest of this week ought to be interesting. I'm sure quite a few students will be missing for a few days, especially my Keesler kiddos. Normally a 3 or 4 day weekend would thrill me, but I've been so antsy and there's not a whole lot we can do. Most places closed early yesterday (even the casinos! Shocker.) and were definitely closed today. Thankfully, only branches and pine cones are down all over, and our ditches are flowing steadily with water. Other than that, it's almost like we just had a severe thunderstorm graze us, not the outer bands of a hurricane.
