and they just keep coming...

This time last year, I planned a beach trip with my besties, which ended up being cancelled due to weather...remember? Tropical Storm Lee! Well this year hasn't been much better. Although I have no beach trip planned, the possibility of planning anything 'beachy' for Labor Day weekend has been hindered by yet another storm, T.S./Hurricane Isaac.

Good ol' Isaac...Didn't mount up to much in terms of hurricane strength, as it only reached a Cat 1, but traveling as slow as it did, caused severe damage to the boot! And on the anniversary of Katrina, no less.

Plaquemines Parish suffered catastrophic flooding in the early hours of the storm. People and animals alike were stranded as waters began to rise out of the gulf and over the levees.

I just hope all of you made it to high ground, without suffering too much damage. And that you all had a good Labor Day weekend, despite Mother Nature and her antics.
