Life on the edge

Check the nola.com website.

Check the weather channel.

Check the parish website.

Check the state website.

Call friends "in the know" about contraflow.

Wait. Watch. Worry.

Try to think about other things.

Think about what I might pack up to evacuate, but don't actually pack anything.

Except a bag to entertain The May Queen in the car.

Scrapbook all evening with friends!

Come home.

Check the websites. Wonder. Worry. Waffle.

Should I stay or should I go?

Sleep on it.

(hopefully...)

Ohhhh..

You're still in my prayers. I hope Gustav decides to go somewhere else!!!

I was wondering about this since we can rarely trust news reports. When I saw you comment, I figured it must be okay for now but it's really disturbing to think of more evacuations, etc.

thinking about you. If you need to head up to Shreveport, let me know, my mom is moving up there, I bet y'all could couch surf.

Definitely thinking of you guys this week...

And there is another little hottie in the area right now. Maybe he'll get distracted. :)

I know. This time of year I'm so glad Josh is on the disaster recovery team at work. because they fly him (and us) out so he can handle the IT flow from a remote location. But still, the NERVES.
