<<Heard tonight that we MAY get as much as 8 inches of rain out  this.>>

Power just came back on.  It was off for 5 hours.  I was getting  ready to 
abandon ship and hunt for a road above water.  And a working  coffee pot!  
The storm hit a bit earlier than expected.  Our local weatherman says  
Katrina is traveling faster than projected.  Unfortunately, it probably  means that 
the people north of us will probably get more rain than the  expected. 
For my location, instead of the 8 inches predicted, only an extra inch  has 
fallen at this point, bringing my weekly total to 5 inches.  Of course,  it's 
still going to rain at a steady pace for most of the day and accumulate  
another inch or more.  Looks like the eye of the storm is further to the  west than 
I expected.   
Took an umbrella late yesterday and toured the garden, most appear to be  
managing well.  Even found some rebloom stalks.  This years seedling  crop is 
looking better than expected.  The drought, reduced  fertilization, and later 
planting had me concerned.  
It may be a blessing that all these new irises aren't in the ground  yet.  
The 40 or so in the pots are looking good.
