the waiting game

Gustav is on his way. We're spending the day getting ready for him, gathering up everything that's outside, bracing the chimney, collecting all the flashlights and candles and putting them in a spot where we can find them when the power goes out.
As far as supplies, I think we're OK. I went to the store tuesday before the shelves were wiped clean, and stocked up on bread, crackers, peanut butter, squeeze cheese, water, beef jerkey, and cans of fruit cocktail. Oh, and the mysterious disappearing toilet paper. (You can never find any after a hurricane!)
Now, we just wait.
