i hope everyone in Katrina's path is prepareing. If u guys dont see me online next week, might be due to electricity outage. this one looks like a bad one. we went to get the basics this morning..batteries and water. i hope all are preparing like it IS coming and will be BAD. Better to be prepared than sorry. I hope my inlaws in new orleans decide to come..even though hubby said they never will. really is silly to stay. why r people like that.
o well just wanted all to know whats going on and i will be thinking of everyone...hopefully if i need to add more pics to the collage i can do it next week.
good luck!

Jaimie are you in the path of Katrina? I certainly hope not but if you are in the area please be safe. I will keep you in my thoughts and pray for you and your family's safety.

We got up early to secure our property. We'll move the boat and jet ski this afternoon and my parents, the dogs and I are heading to Jackson at 5:00AM tomorrow. My husband is on call, so he'll hang around here until Sunday night.

The news is saying that Katrina could hit New Orleans at a 4 or even a 5! :eek: That is going to cause some amazing destruction. Good luck and best wishes to anyone in that area. Be smart and stay safe!

A friend's daughter and family live in New Orleans and she said the Governor has called for all of southern Louisiana to be evacuated...... They are having to pack up and get out of there. Jaime, it looks like your in-laws will have no choice!!

This is not sounding good..... hope it is false alarm!

New Orleans takes hurricanes VERY seriously since they sit below sea level. A direct hit on the city could be a horrific. For us on the Mississippi Gulf Coast a hit on New Orleans isn't good either, because that puts us on the bad side of the storm. When a hurricane goes into Alabama or Florida we are on the preferred side and it lessens the effect. My parents and I are going to go North late tonight instead of early tomorrow morning. Ever since New Orleans started calling for evacuations they are telling most of the people to head north to Jackson and Memphis. We are afraid that we'll be in horrible traffic if we wait.
