Gustav Update

The entire parish is without electricity, as is all of West Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension, and a whole lot of other ones, too. Overall, with the storm not reaching the western part of the state yet, over 750,000 households are without power. They said it could take up to a month to restore all the power.
EBR is under curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. tomorrow because we have no power, because trees and utiltiy poles are down all over the place, and because there is debris all over the place.
By 6, the winds should have died down enough that I can go see if I still have a functioning car.
Sigh. I really hate this.
