    Louisiana Weather

    By the grace of God neither Mav or I were home when it hit....

    the tornado that is.....about 9 AM today....

    I had been to the Dr Wednesday ....And was really wishing to stay home esp since it was raining so hard N the wind was awful...but duty bellowed N I went...

    Mav had routine check up at his Drs about 18 miles south....for 9:45...he left early to drop some jambalaya off for my Dad.....

    Well, tonight I am at my Dad's who is unscathed and HAS power....Mav is home with Babycat, 2 generators and doing his protect the property thang...


    Mav got home several hours before me....between detailed accounts from him N my cousin...I thought I was prepared...NOOOOOOOT

    Well, I got the courage to come home after work N it looked just like the aftermath of kATRINA ...blue tarps on roofs where trees had fallen R shingles were blown away....trees on cars....a carport "removed" from a house N shambles....fences down...and trees split in two everywhere...hell YES HELL...I didnt think there were that many trees left after big K.....

    Good news: as far as I know, no one was injured, we didnt loose total communication...cell service was erractic but workable...and power is s'pose to be back on tonight R tommorrow by noon

    Glad you made it unscathed, property can be replaced, people can't. LA can be a tough place at times but it is also beautiful.
