Thanks for the concerned emails regarding our relatives in New Orleans. Thankfully our relatives have evacuated but from the reports 80% of New Orleans is under water (Great-Aunt’s house included). Our last visit there was in October ’04 to visit our ill grandmother who just recently passed awayearly this year (her house is probably underwater from what I can tell being that it’s near Lake Pontchartrain).
There’s a lot of history with our family in that part of the South and everyone there (and Mississippi) is in our thoughts and prayers.
This tragedy really puts life in perspective.
