British Columbia, Canada
5:30 a.m. PST - Well Serenity and her family did make it to Crowley, and are all fine it seems, and I will check with them later on. I couldn't get to sleep, but they did. I woke Karen's son up just now to get a report that they were all okay, have been watching the news, and now we are all going back to sleep for a bit.
Dixie, stay safe now too, and everyone in this horrible hurricane may you all be safe. I can't imagine even what this must be like, and just pray for you all.
Sad the underground pumps in New Orleans are not working (they require those to pump out the water that is coming in - so early in the game - this is not a good thing.)
I don't know if Twist and her Mom are with Karen or not yet as I got her son up this morning when I called. I felt badly about waking him up so didn't ask too much, but will probably know more later on. Twist had Karen's husband's cell number so they would have been in touch I am hoping?
