Well, it looks like most members from this area have fared pretty well considering the circumstances. I last posted here on Monday night saying that I was right in the path of the storm. Well, when we learned more about how this storm was going to behave we left too.
We cleaned the refrigerator and took some freezer stuff and left on Tuesday morning. We went to North Louisiana to a home we own there thinking that our chances for being comfortable were greatly increased by heading there.
As it turns out the eye of the storm went over our home north of New Orleans and very close to where we were in North Louisiana. That was good for us because the worst of the rain bands were northeast of us in Mississippi. We didn't lose power up there and were able to keep up with events through the weather channel and CNN.
We returned home today to a messy yard but nothing that a chain saw and a little sweat can't handle. There were some people that will really suffer for a long time over this storm just as others did during Katrina. I feel for them and hope everyone the best.
Elliswyatt and W2r, glad to see that you guys made out ok.
Let me also add that unlike last time, I don't have to worry about going back to w**k. I would probably be there right now because I know they are in full "start-up mode".......without me
