The chickens are laying well. I got 2 eggs yesterday and the last 2 I used were both double yolked eggs.

Hurricane Gustav mercifully slowed down and did not do the damage Katrina did, it wasn't nearly as bad as what was forecast. Although for the just because it wasn't as bad as Katrina doesn't mean we should forget that it was bad in some areas on the coast.
There are a couple folks over on the LATOC forum that say the storm has down trees, caused extensive flooding and power outages, etc...

Probably will get substantial rains off the other hurricanes that are currently lined up like a string of beads across the Atlantic. Hopefully they won't do much damage either. That area is still not fully recovered from Katrina and they don't need another monster hurricane.
