Hurricane Gustav--A Scary Reminder of Katrina

The pictures this weekend of the storm coming this week is so much  of a reminder of what was coming three years ago with Hurricane Katrina.  I had just arrived here and we were away on a staff retreat when Katrina hit.  We came home to higher gas prices (nothing has changed except that it had solidly crossed into the $2.00/gallon range) and a concerted effort to reach out to these folks.  Within a week or two of Katrina we had a movement to take home goods to displaced families from N.O. in the Dallas area.   It's just all to similar. I pray that it won't have the same effect this time.
