Jackson Again

We made it to Jackson yesterday in record time: 9 hours. It's a record for the longest it's ever taken us to make a trip that normally takes 3 hours. There were so many people going north this time because going west wasn't a good idea with Gustav's path taking him through all of southern LA.

We saw lots of pet carriers and cages. We saw parrots, budgies and bunnies driving by all looking very confused by the change in scenery. The people looked concerned and harried as the traffic trudged. At one point, it took 2 hours to go fourteen miles. By the time we arrived at our friend's home, we were ready for a drink. He was ready for us with a lovely dinner with some of his friends. It definitely helped take the edge off a trying day.

Our house is already without power this morning. Juannie found that info on a website when he woke up. I just hope there's no water creeping in there.

It's a link on nola.com but it stopped working soon after he checked it yesterday morning. It now shows no power outages anywhere but we've had info that our neighborhood is still without power as of Tuesday afternoon.

I forgot the most important detail - an Entergy link. I just checked it again and it's still not working properly.

Thank you! I'm glad that things look better in our neighborhood based on reports we've gotten. No flooding but a lot of trees and limbs down. Fingers are crossed that our little house is sitting there in okay shape just waiting on us to come on back.
