With a storm of this immensity approaching, I can only hope to be back sooner rather than later. I've battened down my hatches and secured my belongings as best I can and have stocked up on all necessary provisions. My place of empolyment is closed until further notice and hopefully we will all survive with minimal, if any, damage.
All battery operated devices; radio, t.v., cooling fans, cell phone and CD player, are powered up and ready for action. Emergency lighting is also installed and operational.
All that's left now is to send out a curse that Katrina shall suffer a "Shattered Impact."
