Hey everyone!

Well, Louisiana has survived yet another hurricane. We are not back to normal yet, but it probably won't take us long.
I would like to take this time to offer my condolences for those who have suffered due to Katrina and Rita. You folks are in my prayers.
On a happier note, Rita was the first hurricane that came our way since we bought our MH. We had the MH loaded and ready to go a few days early, so when the boss shut everything down, we loaded up a few relatives and took off. We traveled about 100 miles north east from where we live and rode it out at a campground. We then came back home Sunday to check out the damage. Thankfully, we suffered only minor damage to a shop building and a tractor shed. I lost about 8 shingles from the roof of my house. That was IT! We had a harder time with Lilly.
Anyway, our electricity was off, so I kept the genset running and with an extension chord, ran the fridge in our house. It sure was nice to be able to take a shower when needed and to sleep in air conditioning.
Yesterday our electricity was turned back on at about 6 pm but I kept the MH up and running on the genset for a couple of hours just in case.

Anyway, I want to thank all of you who were praying for us. Keep those prayers going for those who were not as fortunate as us.

Cajun Paul, Glad to hear that you are one of the fortunate ones to survive these storms. We will continue to pray and send support to the area. I agree that a mh is one of the best things to have when the electricity grid falls. God bless & take care.
