At least it looks highly unlikely. We'd have to come home Thursday, and that's not looking good. He should be able to go home tomorrow I think.

But I feel horrible for caring about that when we've been so lucky.

I haven't heard that my mother has arrived safely, but I haven't heard she hasn't. I learned long ago not to worry about her when I don't hear from her. She left late, made poor decisions, and still had hours to go as of Monday morning. But she should have been out of the danger zone.

As usual, now that the immediate crisis is over my mood is dipping. My therapist will probably be gone for two weeks in September for work and vacation. I'll be lucky to be back home by Tuesday because we're not going home until there is electricity. Internet access may be iffy for a while once we get back. I'm not sure. They're not as fast as the electric company.

10der, you're right. Governor Jindal is so competent and has all the information on the tip of his fingers! Even before this, we were fans. I hope he gives wonkiness the sexy reputation it deserves. :)

Things are so different this time. There is not only interparish cooperation, but there is an unbelievable degree of local, parish, state, and federal cooperation. It's been breathtaking.

A few areas had some bad bad flooding, and we haven't necessarily heard about everything yet. I was glued to the TV watching the Plaquemines Parish president decide Sunday night that the weakening of the storm made it possible to save his most populous area, Belle Chasse, so he was out there working with everyone to build a temporary levee across the highway from the areas that couldn't be protected. That levee held. Then he was out last night as another levee in his area was overtopped, and he sent out an urgent warning that the water was up to his chest and those in Braithwaite who hadn't evacuated had to get out by going out along the Mississippi river levee, which was the only dry land. St Bernard was almost miraculously spared. They were so devastated by Katrina.

I am so thankful for the dry air that weakened the storm before landfall. My thoughts and prayers go to those who weren't as lucky as so much of the New Orleans area was.

Now I have to work hard not to crash until we're safely home, and preferably not until I'm safely in therapy. (Thank heavens his area did very well and he probably won't have his own crash.)

I really appreciate the concern and good thoughts everyone. It means a lot to me.
