Gustav is Keeping Me Awake

Who is Gustav you ask?
He is not my sweetheart, preventing my slumber by whispering sweet nothings in my ear.
He is the horrific storm that is bearing down on us.
I want to get up and head out before the mandatory evacuees to the south clog up the roadways. The wee little town in which I live has seen two lane bumper to bumper traffic all day.
Last night, I was so irritated about how this hurricane preparation hijacked my last few days to hang out with Lizbeth, and punch drunk from lack of sleep, that I started ranting. In an angry.Russian.accent. (Apologies to my dear -Dinskys.)
*insert said accent here*
I will take Gustav and pinch off his nose and stick it in his ear!
I will kick Gustav behind the knees and say "Take that you filthy animal!"
I will bit Gustav on the ear and say, "How do you like that?"

Don't try to make sense of it. There is no end to the silliness. Yes, Lizbeth is gone and Gustav is on his way. Oh the insanity of it all.

  1. We are praying for you all! I have experienced evacuation. once in my life. The first year I moved to Maryland we went down to the Outer Banks for vacation. On Tuesday we were evacuated. One road leading out of OBX, bumper to bumper vacationers. Most locals that we saw were staying. I was amazed at how well everyone was taking it. People walking back and forth visiting with family, playing football along the road. One of the local restaurants brought subs and sodas out to the cars and sold them at discount prices to the people stuck in the traffic. It took us 6 hours to get from OBX to Virginia Beach which would normally take about 1 1/2 hours. We stayed the night there, thinking maybe that it would pass and we could finish off the week. Nope, they evacuated Virginia Beach the next day. We did get to go down to OBX the next year for 2 weeks to make up for our shortened beach trip. I found it a bit exciting and the 7 kids with us were very good during that time!! Keep us posted!!


Awaiting your words......
