***finally heard from mymom. SHE IS FINE!! now i can relax. whispering prayers for those still riding out Gustav***
but they are better than yesterday.
I haven’t heard from my mom yet, she was supposed to leave New Orleans at 2am this morning. She was supposed to call. She didn’t. Now she’s not answering her phone.
I’ve talked to all my family/friends. They are all out.
My grandmother left last night w/ my uncle. She is going to Gonzales by my aunt.
Baby Kady’s mom was headed to Picayune, Ms
My HS BFF is in Monroe… her husband WAS in Baton Rouge (their jobs seperated them).. i need to text her.
Trina was headed to Macon, Ga.
My friend Steph had surgery this week. She had surgery the week Katrina hit. She is not allowed to have surgery again.
Still havent heard from my mom
Since yesterday my mind has been in a warped little circle. Who’s gone, who’s not gone, who haven’t I heard from, wheres is this person,
It will be that way until Gustav is over.
I’m scared for New Orleans.
Katrina was a fluke. It wasn’t a direct hit on New Orleans. It was a low category 3 when it made landfall.
Gustav is the one they warned us about.
Unless a miracle happens (which i’m praying for) Gustav will be a direct hit and may be a low category 4 or a strong category 3. Both spell devastation.
The levees are already compromised.
My grandmother JUST finished rebuilding.
Her home is 3 blocks from the 9th ward levees. She’s on the lower 9 side in between the st. claude and claiborne bridges.
I hate that she wasted her time rebuilding.
I’m glad we decided not to go back.
This time it’s worse for me than Katrina. In Katrina, we had no clue what was going on. We were in a black hole. This time i have Yahoo news, CNN, The weather channel, FoxNews.
I know too much.
The say home is where the heart is… My heart will always be in New Orleans.
