Lessons From the Past

As I sit here today and watch hurricane Ike whip its way across Cuba, I am reminded of other hurricanes in the past. Our most recent was Dolly; just a little over a month ago it brought us all the hurricane we wanted for a while. Now it looks like Ike may give us another shot. I went to Academy Sporting Goods store this morning and bought two battery operated lanterns. Bebe said she liked the candles, but they weren't much good for anything except looking pretty. I did remember to get batteries. I went back through some of the photos that came out of New Orleans and found one with a list attached. I offer it as a guide to those of you who may be in the path of the storm.

A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.
