Hurricane Gustav certainly proved to be an interesting hurricane for our state. I just read an article in an area paper that it had actually caused more wind and rain damage across the state than Katrina had done. Of course, the major damage from Katrina came from flooding because the levees didn't hold. There are still areas of our state without power, without sewer systems properly functioning, without adequate supplies of gasoline, etc. Here in Minden, most of our evacuees have headed home, even though some of them might not have returned to good situations. And now we are facing Ike! Sigh.
