Homeward Bound?

Almost three weeks ago, I was wondering if I was Jackson bound as my destination to ride out the storm. It seems like the worrying and wondering was a lifetime ago. Three weeks ago today, I went to bed thinking that Katrina was going to the Florida Panhandle after I watched the 10 o'clock weather report. By the next afternoon, my co-workers and I were worriedly watching the new track on The Weather Channel showing it heading for the New Orleans area. And the track didn't vary much after that. It really is hard to believe all that was happening just twenty-one days ago.

Now, I am hoping to be homeward bound very soon. It's looking favorable that we might be going home this weekend - for good! The powers that be in my town of Kenner are allowing folks back in. And the powers that be at work are more than happy to release me from Jackson to go home. This all depends on finding a workspace somewhere in the New Orleans area. That's not as difficult as it sounds. Offices are operating in Jefferson Parish where my home is and in Hammond. The Jefferson Parish option would be better but Hammond is only 30 minutes from my house so I would be happy either way. I'll know for sure tomorrow.

I am happy to think about returning to our house but I am also nervous about seeing the current state of my city.

I want to go home too, only I don't even know if it gets to be home anymore :( Best of luck getting home.

It's a weird time because so many people are very uncertain about where they will end up. One of my brothers is in Ohio with his family now. They may end up staying there.

I'm only uncertain because Jim's job is uncertain and we won't know for six months. It's all political. I'd go back to my house.

Good news that you're finally heading back! I'll be very interested to hear how things go.

I am happy but also have a lot of trepidation. I know that we can get our house back to normal eventually but I am wondering what New Orleans will be like for the next few years.
