A) I honestly think and very much hope that it will go west and miss NOLA completely
B) We are ready this time. Most of the car is packed, I have several alternative places to stay. At this point I am waiting for confirmation of the best one/closest one/safest one. Space Bags rule!
C) If we get water, it should not be more than a foot inside of the house. I can deal with a foot of stinky, toxic mold
D) We are coming back, flooded or not. The only way, we would not be coming back is if Lusher and Audubon, Ochsner, and Tulane closed for good. I can make chicory coffee and red beans and rice. Hell, I will learn to play a trumpet if it helps to keep NOLA alive.
It is my home. It is where my husband is. I can't leave..... I might get the rifle from the garage though...
Stay safe and come back. I have some cool squirrel recipes if Winn Dixie would close.
