Here we sit all disappointed (NOT), Lili is going inland further east of
us. We are getting winds out of the north gusting to 50 mph (northern
windwall) and some light rain but we won't rest until tonight as this
storm could change again.

Luckily she went from 145 mph to 100 mph before she got this close so
the damage from wind and storm surge will be lessened somewhat. The rain
that will be dropped on the New Iberia/New Orleans area will be bad
though. They just got 18 inches from Isidore so don't need anymore.

We've been up since about 0400 as we went to bed early last night.
Breakfast is done, no limbs to pick up as yet, no damage to the gardens,
the paper was delivered and read so looks like we just get an extra long
weekend out of Lili. Happy trails.
