For the past few days we have been getting things prepared to endure Hurricane Gustav. We have bought lots of snack food, water, batteries, etc. I figured if nothing else everyone could survive on junk food for several days. Here are some pictures of how we got the outside of the house prepared. We tried to get rid of all potential projectiles.
These are our wrought iron patio chairs tied to our swing set.
Another view of the storage room filled will our storage bins full of toys (outside toy boxes) and water.
This shows some of our plants also being stored in the storage room. The plants just started a resurgence in growth especially the bell peppers.
See this tree. It was uprooted during Katrina but we were able to pick it back up and support it for a while and it rooted back in the ground.
