KATRINA IS ON ITS WAY...

It's headed our way. The strength of this storm is just horrendous. It has been since 1969 since we have endured anything like this.

We have not been evacuated and at this point, and I don't anticipate a mandantory evacuation. We are 150 miles from New Orleans, and we will get 100 mph winds from the way it is looking.

We are going to tough it out. We do not have to worry about flooding. Our main concern will be the wind, and we are surrounded by trees, except for the front of our house. With two 100 pound German Shepards and 4 cats, we will attempt to ride it out. Our concern will be electricity, as in 1969 this area was without electricity for 2-3 weeks. We have tried for the last two days to purchase a generator, but have been unsuccessful. Enough on the weather...

I HAVE ADDED THE PAY-PAY INFORMATION FOR NOAH TO THE RIGHT. SSM IS AWAITING A PHONE CALL, AND IF NOAH IS TOLD THAT HE WILL BE IN GERMANY FOR ANY EXTENDED TIME, SSM WILL HOP ON THE NEXT PLANE.

Soldiers Angels has offered to take care of all expenses that Noah's family needs, but donations would be greatly appreciated for this family. So please dig deep and make a donation, as I have.

I was on the phone with Some Soldiers Mom last night around midnight, and she has her bags packed and is just waiting for that call from Noah, and she will be headed his way if needed.

Hey, Stacy! I've been thinking about you & wondering what Katrina could mean to your area. Hoping everything goes okay and that the storm will leave you with electricity, for crying out loud.

I need to know how to put Noah's Pay-Pal thingy on my blog...any tips? I'll e-mail you & maybe you can give me a tutorial? :)

Be safe!!

Yes Prayers abound for Noah.
Have you heard from Michael?
I just got goosebumps writting that.
I pray that Katrina slowed his progress back. Sorry Michael, but I do.
Hope you get power back before 2-3 weeks. YIKES!!
Can't deal with not hearing from you for that long.

Stacy, I finally figured it out and I got my donation to go through to Noah's pay pal. Disregard the voice mail. Stay safe. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
