ALMOST ALL OVER WITH

Looks as though it is almost all over with, except the rain.  It has rained all night long.  Our lights only flickered yesterday afternoon. Just a few limbs are scattered throughout the yard.

The county just south of us was hit with a good bit of winds.  Not sure how much damage just yet.  
Now we have to keep an eye on the other three storms.

Our Gulf Coast got a good bit of wind and water damage, but for the most part seems as though we were spared. 

Greta and the kids are still here and will see today what the Louisiana and Mississippi Departments of Transportation say about the Interstate before they head back home.
