Waiting for Gustav
Today I am busy baking bread for Mammies Cupboard. We are inundated with evacuees from New Orleans. It is expected we will receive tropical force winds and gusts to hurricane force with double digit inches of rain. There is a steady stream of cars coming through our community heading north. All hotels and motels and 3 local shelters are full.
I am sure we will lose power. Our generator will not run my oven as well as the air conditioner, so I am baking bread today. I bake a pumpernickle bread they use to make Ruebens. I usually make 8 to 12 loaves a week for them. With all the extra folks in town, they will probably be calling for more bread.
Keep your fingers crossed for us and a little prayer wouldn't hurt either!
