More Hurricane

by Kay~Kacey on 8/31/2005

They got hit hard, didn’t they? :frown: So obviously we’re not headed out to New Orleans next week. Or anytime in the near future. But, I don’t care. I have a house, electricity, water, food. Seems silly to bitch about missing a vacation.

My dh lived in Slidell, LA and part of it is underwater.Have you seen the pictures of the collasped Twin Spans bridge? That’s the bridge from Slidell to New Orleans. We also had a farm out in the country from there in Picayune, MS and haven’t heard from our friends there or in Slidell. I’m hoping eventually they’ll get somewhere to check email or we’ll hear from them. Hold out good thoughts, please.

And the people at WriteMinded are helping out Larissa. If you haven’t heard about her loss from the hurricane, or their efforts to help, read about it on StephT’s blog or Writeminded. Pop over there and see how you can help her out.

Thanks for posting the link, Kacey! I have family in Kenner, one of the hardest hit areas, and we still haven’t heard from them. Don’t know where they are or anything.

Our area in Texas (just across the la state line) is being flooded with evacuees. One of the older schools a few miles from here filled up really quick and there are a lot of babies. Everyone is being asked to donate diapers and formula. And we dont have cell service even into Texas. Cingular said 400 of their 600 towers are kaput.

It’s an unbelievable situation, isn’t it? My heart goes out to the people in those areas. I live in a hurricane region myself, and we were hit pretty badly several times. Thankfully I’m a few miles away from the coast line, enough to be protected from the worst of the flooding, but it still changes the way you think about things.

It’s very sad, isn’t it? I’m happy to have a house and electricity and my family intact today.

It’s so sad. I feel just terrible for those people. Can you imagine what it must feel like to have everything just float away!! Ugh

It’s a situation where you really don’t know what to say anymore. It seems like society has broken down in New Orleans – very sad.

Heartbreaking, isn’t it?

Jill September 1, 2005 at 6:53 pm

I just can’t wrap my mind around it all, so heart wrenching.

Thanks for posting the link to help Larissa! The show of support for her has really been helping her through the past couple of days. Every time I talk to her, I tell her how many people are pulling for her and she’s juat so grateful, as is her husband.

It’s been so awful. I’m happy they are finally getting some help.

This whole situation has just broke my heart. The images and the stories told are just so sad.
