Wow! HT, I am overwhelmed at the way in which you have protected
yourselves from the mosquitoes!  I presume that you are in a warmer
clime than my Eastern zone 6..? 

The storm is upon us right now, with threats of large thunder storms
tonight and a steady rain by morning for the entire day and night -- 
but if I can slip out in a gentle rain in the morning, I will head right
to Home Depot.  I would like to put the dunks out before I leave on
Saturday morn. 

BTW, George, the rain began 12 hours ahead of schedule, which is
an enormous blessing because now we can anticipate having the
storm move on out to sea by daybreak on Saturday!  I've got all my
fingers crossed that tonight's heavy rains won't flood the cellar
workshop. . .  We may have to pull an all-nighter down there. 

Have NEVER seen a Weather Bureau satelite image of rain which
covers the entire TV screen before!  It's just green from stem to
stern -- fantastic, except that we are living thru it. 

Did you feel the brunt of the deluge which has been covering
New Orleans, George?

My many thanks, HT, for all that detailed info on the dunks. It
gives me a new lease on things .....
