Unless Hurricane Gustav takes a turn before landfall, we'll be riding it out here at home. This picture shows where we live compared to the current (as of Sat. afternoon,) NOAA forcasted landfall. According to this (& barring any changes,) the closest the storm will come to our house is about 150 miles away. I doubt we'll get much flooding & even if we do, the house is far enough above ground to stay dry. Our biggest threat comes from the 100' tall pine forest all around. Most of the post-Katrina dead wood has blown down in lesser storms since then, so here's hoping the rest of the trees are hale, hearty & flexible enough to stay off of our house & cars.
