Yeah, that was interesting.
So, after hearing that Gustav was a Category 4, the hubby and I decided that we needed to really buckle down and prepare. So we went the whole route -- taped and tarped the windows, sandbags and plywood across the sliding glass doors, stocked up on bottled water and canned and non perishable foods...
And we got a Category 2 instead.
Mind you, no complaints, really. I'm glad to know that the storm was so mild in comparison to what was expected. But still... I'm wishing I hadn't spent the money I did, ya know?
I managed to sneak outside with my camera and grab a couple of silent videos. One was during the worst of it, and one was afterwards, when TJ went running into the flooded parking lot. For some reason, the first one is turned on its side and I can't figure out how to turn it back the way it should be. Just tilt your head to the side, you'll be fine.
