Okay So Far

Just a short post. We are doing okay in Jackson, MS as of 9:30AM. Based on the Weather Channel info, my hometown is getting hit hard but we expected that. My parents finally gave in to the pressure from my brothers - I gave up trying to convince them - and left New Orleans around 11AM. It took them almost six hours to get to Baton Rouge which is a trip that normally takes a little over an hour.

I am hoping all who stayed are doing okay and all those who evacuated are making the best of the unexpected travel. Jackson is expected to get a good bit of wind and rain as the storm moves north but we should be fine here.

I would've given anything to wake up this morning in my little house and gone to work like usual.

I'm glad you made it out. I left Saturday and am staying with friends in Atlanta.

I agree... I wish I were having "a case of the Mondays" at work right now instead of this....
