Drying Out; Things Trying To Get Back To Normal

I’m going to the office today; trying to get back in the saddle with all that is going on.

Still looking for more rain around here, but it shouldn’t be anywhere near as bad as yesterday.

Andy and Austin may head back to New Orleans in a few days; their house is okay according to Charlene, who had to stay down there as head of security for the Galleria.

As of last night, parts of Alexandria were still flooded, and parts of Rapides Parish were way under water. Deville saw something insane like 19 inches of rain yesterday morning. Watching video of my city flooded was surreal.

LSU’s football game for Saturday has been canceled; that’s one for the history books. I may or may not have to go to Baton Rouge for a hearing tomorrow; I’m calling the ALJ today to find out. Opposing counsel is from New Orleans; I have no idea where she might be.

In any event, keep praying for us down here in Central Louisiana. Still a lot of folks without power and water.

    We have that stereotype of you folks in snappy clothes, sipping strong yet elegant drinks (when you are not partying in NO, that is).

    But the reality is that you folks have to be tres hardy to live down there.

    Will keep up the prayers.

    My daughter in Eros still doesn’t have power. I’m offering prayers for you all.

    Good to hear, but watch out for Ike. The track keeps moving it west, and as of today, it could come right through your area.
