Pain In Our Collective Ass!

Hurricane Katrina is that pain. And she is a bother to the entire Gulf Coast right now because no one really knows yet what the storm is going to do. I've got reservations in Fairhope, AL based on a track that takes it very close to New Orleans. I have relatives in that area so at least we'd be close to family. And the hotel takes pets.

Right now, though, my inclination is to stay put. I could be completely wrong about that. My parents (crazy stubborn old people!) aren't planning to leave even if it's a category 4 direct hit.

Hurricanes were fun when I was a kid because school was closed and we got to go on a trip. As an adult, there's lots to worry about as I gather insurance paperwork, take pictures of valuables and worry about the long-term prospects of my little house.

It is part of the lifestyle around these parts but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with. At least we have a place to go and can get out. Lots of people in New Orleans don't have cars so they just have to ride out the storm and any flooding that comes with it.

Thanks! We have a plan and just have to wait and see what the storm does.

Arg - I'm sorry to hear this. As soon as I heard about the hurricane I wondered about you.

Good luck!!

Ha! I can't help wondering what your dogs would make of foot high snow and -40 temps!

I can hear them now: "WTF?!! Is this some kind of sick joke??"
