We were lucky once again in Shreveport and Bossier City to have some of the lesser weather. There were many power outages and fallen trees but other than that we remained relatively unscathed. I don't think we even got an inch of rain from the storm. I thank God for sparing us, but feel bad for the communities which did suffer. So, tell us your story if you will. Thanks

We had tropical storm winds for over a day and some rain, but, not too much in New Orleans. Lost power for about 1 hour on day 1. I only lost power for 6 hours for Gustav according to a neighbor that stayed. No signs of either hurricane in my Mid-City neighborhood. All gone and cleaned up.

They are slowly hauling off debris from Gustav here in Baton Rouge. Ike wasn't a big deal to us. My power flashed once in the middle of the night Friday night, that was it. At least the traffic lights are working again, even if they aren't synched very well.
