Baton Rouge... here we come

New Orleans becomes a pretty eerie place to be in the days leading up to an evacuation for an impending hurricane. The shutters close, boards go up, parking lots empty, daily banter ends and everything becomes about "the updated path", "your evacuation plan", "emergency supplies", etc. This is where we are right now. The realization is setting in for even the most stubborn, the jokes stop, the real work begins and the fears of what will be when we return start to come. Best of luck to all and I will keep you updated on our status.

I'm praying several times a day that Gustav weakens and there is little damage. Take care.

My Prayers are with all.... My Sister, who lost her home in Chalmette and now lives in Baton Rouge, keeps me posted...
We both love to go to New Orleans for relaxing weekends and a fun time. We have not been back in over 3 years. YOU ALL ARE IN MY PRAYERS....

Our families have reported that traffic is not bad at all on I-10 so far. Hope ya'll make it out before the interstate backs up. There are 10 people at our house so far! Should be fun.
