Sit and Wait

Our team has settled down in Covington, LA. Our host is Dr. Reggie Ogea's house. We arrived around 1pm and saw that a few gas stations and businesses were still open. After we refilled our gas tanks we found a local Chinese shop. I have never been so excited about General Tso's Chicken. When we got back to the house, it was extremely calm and pretty outside. We decided to play a little Ultimate Frisbee and jump in our hosts pool. Right after our swim, the rain started to pour down.

Here is the current status of Gustav: Cat 3 / 115mph / NW 18mph

The storm has diminished significantly, but it is still a major storm. The wind and rain has already begun to pick up quite a bit. There won't be a whole lot more for me to blog about over the next day and a half. Hopefully I will at least be able to keep people posted through twitter. There is no telling how long we will be without power.

For those who have contacted me about helping out in the relief work, we will keep everyone posted through this blog and our website as soon as we put the plan in place.

Keep praying for all who are affected by this storm.
