All of the damage is still not assessed, but most of the Greater New Orleans area considers this storm another close shave. No flooding for us, (MY family, that is) and, miraculously, we did not even lose power (all though 38,000 others did---and though we are still watching the radar? It seems we are being kissed goodbye by the last bands of this mess. There are several areas with flooded homes, and as always, submerged vehicles--disturbingly, on the designated evacuation route.
Ruth (suthern) checked in, and said her family also faired well in New Iberia.
I haven't heard from Paul Wilson, or Rich (spiked) but? anyone hear from Jenn? I do believe Gulfport is being pummeled right now.
Sigh...Thanks to all for the prayers and well wishes. Now let's all keep an eye on Miss Lily? I think I need some sleep...
thanks all, I exit yawning...
