The reports of flooding are sounding pretty bad...

A Parish official for St. Bernard Parish has reportedly said that there is 15 to 20 feet of water throughout the parish...

That report came from here...

There are also reports of an apartment building collapsing, with people inside, in Terrytown, which is just to the southeast of New Orleans...

I found that report here...

They still need lots of prayers there, as well as in other areas being hit...

Glad all are safe, so far..

Also keep those in prayer who are still going to recieve extensive rain and flooding, even as it moves north. The area from which I am from (southern WV) still has people living in government housing from flooding last year, and there was more flooding a few weeks ago in teh area, and it looks like they are in the path also..

Unfortunately, this storm will affect many of us directly. Lets all stay safe.. don't let concurn for property override your lives! Let your car go, don't stay in your home if it is unsafe..

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad
For I must pay him duty

Everyone?
She is still unleashed.  

Please please get away from it:  Mississippi, Tennesse, Alabama, FL . . .  

check your stations.  

May she pass right by you.

*gasp*

anyway, this started out to be a short note and I really do have to have to go...  but vic?  please feel free to pass this along to ASoTS for me, will ya?

Hey, Twist!

So good to hear from you again!

and?...

I'm soooo glad to hear that someone has been in touch with Shane and that he's okay...

I had been trying to call him, to see how he was,
but hadn't been able to get through...

Thanks for letting us know...

and so relieved to hear that there's no damage to the house too!

From the coverage I've been listening to and the pictures I've been seeing?...

That's a miracle, my friend...

Anyway...

I know you probably don't have a lot of time right now,
so thanks again, for checkin' in with us...

and yep...

You KNOW I'll pass the word on at ASoTS...

Take care of you...

and you too, Karen...

Love you both, my sisters...

Twist - thanks for the update, and I guess that means Karen's houses are okay too?  I can't get through to her at all now, but I am not worrying about you guys as much as before now that you are all safe.  You tell your Mom she can sure be proud - she produced mighty strong women, you all did just great (don't think I could have walked in your shoes.)  The worst is going to be the clean-up now.

I sure wish Toerag, Dixie, and any others would just put a note in that they are all okay.  

Glory Be you are all safe.

Pretty incredible love in this place that is for sure!

*laughing*

Today I am geting more info about my life on Pip than I am through the phone.

(Shar? The cell lines are almost impossible and even local calls are having trouble keeping up with the overload due to the emergency.)

Our nephew Shawn has also checked in, and although they are inches away from flood waters entering the house, so far, so good.

and *twist*? Great news, about Shane and the old homestead. Check in when you hear from the other vagabond son, k? I love you!

I can't express enough my gratitude to the network here at Pip, and these wonderful people who have extended their hospitality to us so very generously.

My kids are in a bit of culture shock, as is the hubby--"Look! There's a horse!" only to hear, "um, technically that's a mule..."



But yanno? I could get used to this.

Crowley...hmmm...



Love to all, and let me turn the info center back over to the pc hungry kids.

See why I love this place?

Twist and K?   Just so happy the both of you are OK.  And your houses and your families.

See?  All the energy scairt her away.
*grin*

(still have my candles, lit though)

Peace to all this is affecting.

live coverage of damage from the air in New Orleans being shown now.
http://www.wdsu.com/video/4909353/detail.html

Just so very sad the devastating damage to some areas.  Watched a rescue of a poor man who must have made it out through his chimney, makes you cry seeing these homes under water.

I am just so grateful those I know were spared this type of loss, and can't express enough my sympathy to all those that were hit with any loss or damage.  Bless them all and heal them from this terrible hurricane.

I sure wish we could hear from other folks in the line of this intense hurricane.  If anyone has word on Toerag, Dixie, or any of our friends in the path, please post something, anything.  We will all be feeling the force of this one for a bit I am sure.

Sure is good to hear that everything's ok. I heard earlier that the city where Dixie lives is not allowing anyone but residents in or out of the city. They are under a tornado watch it seems.

Now this little lady is on her way up through the middle of the country. Please all of you, take EVERY precaution!

Hi Everyone

we just got power back on here at work. 109,000 are still without right now so I feel lucky.

We felt more of the impact of this storm than I thought we would. We have some major flooding, roads closed, trees and power lines down...a curfew is in effect. The winds are still kicking up pretty good even this late (9:15pm)

I don't really know what all is going on right now, just got power up and was sleeping most of the day since I got off work at 7am and had to be back in at 5pm.

But I skimmed through the thread here and I am so glad that Karen and family are all okay. Very relieved! I'd have felt better if they'd have made it to Houston, but I can imagine the traffic jams too.

I'm not sure if we aren't letting anyone in but residents...they will usually do that in just the beach areas like Navarre, Gulf Breeze, and Pensacola Beach, to keep out looters, but I don't think the whole city is boarded up and not letting people in...

from what I've seen so far, we've suffered moderate damage, but nothing anywhere near what others are facing right now, so keep on praying.

jo, Mike, Sharon, Lee, Marge, Sue: thank you each for mentioning me here and for your prayers and concern. It really means a lot in a time like this to know people are thinking about ya  

Thanks to everyone...

just in case anyone wants to read the Pensacola local paper
www.pensacolanewsjournal.com

they have some pictures there of the damage we received, mostly just flooding. But I'm sure they will also keep up with the damage other places too.
