Get ready for Gustav

Looking at our current forecast, we should start getting some of the rain from Gustav sometime today and then through most of tomorrow. Right now, the worst of it should remain to the west of us, but if it tracks back to the east after making landfall we could still see some pretty hefty winds.

So, what do we need to do up here 250 miles north of the coast? Well, really not much out of the ordinary. We baled hay the end of last week and we'll make sure that we don't have bales sitting in low spots that will hold water. I think we'll also run a bushhog to help open up a couple of shallow drainage ditches. Other than that we'll just wait and see I guess. Living in a rural area with lots of trees around power lines usually means power outages when these storms come through, but maybe we'll dodge the bullet this time.
