My grandmother's house was one of the ones with water up to the roof. We don't know about my parents' house yet and can't go back for a few days yet. Yikes this is nuts!!

Well, I have tried to get on here and type three or four times and each time I do, the power blinks. So, I'll try once more. Since the storm moved more eastward, we were not in the path as predicted, so it's just a lot of wind gusts. My trees seem to be holding up. The pictures they are sending in from the MS, LA, and AL Coast are frightening. I called a friend of mine in Hattiesburg and she said her neighbors roof had blown away. That was about 5 hours ago, and Katrina is just now hitting Hattiesburg. My grandfather and all my mom's family lives there, so we are still a little worried.

Cara and Alex, I hope both of your DH's are able to stay safe during all of this. Cara, has your family heard anything about their neighborhood yet? Tanya, I hope you hear from your BIL soon.

Good luck to anyone else who is out there.

My BIL was leaving town last night and expected at my FIL's - normally a 3-4 hr drive on I-10. We've yet to hear from him.

We are praying for those that have been affected by the horrible storm.

Cara, glad to hear that you were able to get away!

We're in a hurricane-prone place (charleston SC) so we sympathize with all of you Gulf Coast people and are praying for you. Keep us informed!

Hey-

We came to Vidalia b/c our power went out last night and Entergy gave us a 2 -3 day minimum, 2 week max to restore it. My family probably won't be able to get back to NO for a little bit, especially since the levees broke. Anyway, Mike (DH) works for the State office of Homeland Security/Emergency Preparedness so we had to leave him in BR but he's safe. He'll be working for the next few months with little time off. His Nat'l Guard unit was activated so he's got that to deal with as well.

Mandy- I'll call you. We will be staying at least the night here and maybe try to back tomorrow afternoon.

I'm in northwest Florida, aka hurricane alley. We'll feel a little from the storm, but nothing like in Lousisiana and Mississippi. I used to work at a Biloxi casino and I'm worried about my friends over there. Poor New Orleans residents. They may not have a house to come home to, but hopefully everyone can escape with their lives. What a scary situation. I pray that all of you that live in that area will be safe.
