Hurricane Gustav Prep

This is what I call Hurricane Preparation. My sister and I have wanted to take pictures in front on this old barn for months now. It is located near our great grandparents home on the banks of the Mississippi River. We took the kids their today in case the barn is not there tomorrow. My grandfather told us that the barn lost its roof in Betsy when the wind blew it to the levee. The wind then changed directions and blew it back to the site. My mother tells me that many years ago the plantation help lived there when the property was still a working farm.
