TS Fay has disappeared off the radar (literally) and we are about 75 percent done with cleaning up behind the storm. We have one small hole in the roof that will need tending to but other than that, just branches and leaves with which to deal. We were very, very lucky.
Hurricane Gustav is slowly churning through the Caribbean. This looks like a Gulf of Mexico storm but it is too soon to tell. It is forecast to be a category 2 storm by midday Sunday.
We are hoping that SGT Mark will receive a weekend pass for Labor Day and be able to come home. If not, I may head up to Ft. Bragg to see him. We are fortunate that he is only six hours away. All of the Joe rumors have us learning about terms like "stop loss" so we are all in a bit of a funk.
