Kirsten, I apologize; I should have posted Houston got nothing from Gustaf
except a couple very brief showers on Monday and some gusty wind at times.
The storm made landfall just west of New Orleans and moved noth, instead of
hooking back and turning south.  I  am certain Arkansas is getting pounded
hard; I'm praying all is okay with Sharon and the rest of our online friends
around there, up into MO and IL.
Thanks for  thinking of me!

I'm so glad you are ok.  Now we need Sharon and Olwyn Mary
(and any others in the path of Gustav) to check in....

Thank you both for the kind thoughts!!  We're a little water logged.  There
are very good things to be said for living at the Top of a hill.  ;)  It
started raining Tuesday morning about 10:00.  Hasn't really stopped yet,
but it is much lighter this morning and the weather guy says by noon it
should be stopping.  We got about 6"+ of rain. Some street flooding here,
but nothing too bad.  There are about 140,000 folks further south in the
state that are without power.  Lots of trees falling over with just a
little wind.  The ground was already really saturated.  We've had the
wettest summer since we moved out here three years ago.  So with this much
rain on top of a record summer already, the trees just can't cling to the
dirt anymore.  

But all is well with us, and I am grateful for that.  Charlie Dog will be
glad when it stops raining. He finally broke down and had a "long trip" out
to the backyard last night.  So long in fact that Mother had to blow him
dry with the hair dryer.  He was dripping wet.   Neither of us would like
to have to repeat that performance.  lol  He's also missing our morning
walks in the park.  I think he was a little jealous of the toy poodle up
the street who wears a rain poncho in weather like this.  ;)

Thanks again!

Sharon

They are not difficult to make, but getting the pet to wear it might be
hard.  I made DS one for his Sheltie once; when we put it on him, he was so
angry; he scratched and yelped till we took it off.  Later, he found it in
the laundry room and proceeded to destroy it.  It was comical watching him,
tear it up, and that was the end of trying to get him to wear one.

I have Shih Tzus, and to make them comfortable in the summer
I always have them trimmed fairly short.  If the nights turn
cold they shiver.  So I have knit them nice little sweaters
and they are perfectly happy to see the sweaters come out of
the drawer, and snuggle right down in them.  I'm not sure
how they would react to a rain poncho, though.
