except the dishwasher..
Sleeping felines at my feet..
Hubby fast asleep, Bubba at his feet..
all calm indoors..
a Hurricane rages..
the rains are still pouring..
wind is still blowing..
and Isaac made landfall earlier this evening in New Orleans..
seven years to the day of Katrina..
folks paid attention around here this time..
all along the upper Gulf coast..
hurrying and scurrying..
purchasing necessities for survival..
in case of prolonged power outages..
Last evening's photo titled All Ready....
Taken from my neighbor's back yard, with permission of course!
Earlier in the day, while out running errands..
I spied this beauty..
although tattered and torn, to me he was magnificent!..
Finding him was such a rarity for me..
Photographing him was sheer delight!
he was such a tease..
would land..then flit..and land again..
Out of many, only three were deemed worthy..
back to the storm..
there were periods of sunshine and blue skies..
along with others of dark, gray and sideways gusting rain..
Thank God ..we here were spared..
While New Orleans only got a minimal one..
Tonite my prayers are for those who are yet to experience Isaac..
and for those who have already been visited..
Again, Thank you Lord, from whom all blessings flow....
