So.

Three years ago today, I lost my home, my job, my salary, my workplace, and everything I owned.

Though I was luckier than some...like the ones I knew who died.

Anyway, let's just hope this go round is better.

Oh, honey, I was thinking of you when I heard it was going to hit New Orleans. Good luck. The 5% of me that's Native American will get in touch with the weather gods and have them keep the levees and all of you safe.

It's a really interesting anecdotal history of Katrina.

The best I can do is wih you a great big merde as we say in France.

I didn't know you then, and this post had me sifting back through your archives to read 2005. I shouldn't be floored by what I read, but I am. I'm embarrassed for me, and admiring of you.

With you hoping things go better.

Best of luck, caro - and be very, very safe.

I'm assuming you have many better and closer places to evacuate to, but I just wanted to let you know that we have a spare room here in Pittsburgh, and you're welcome to it. Really, I mean it.

Thinking of you here in the Big Apple. Stay safe.

Sweetie, the most encouraging thing is the hurricane experts drawing a straight line for its path to the middle of Louisiana. You know how rarely they go in a straight line and how rarely the hurricane guys are right. Good luck honey, I'l keep an eye on you and ya momma too.

I hope so, too. I'll be thinking about you and everyone else living there.

I am in Covington. Sunday night and the first rains just started. I am all boarded up and hoping for the best for us all.

Miss Janey said...

Agree.

Jason, Miss J didn't know Katrina hit you to that extent. She hopes that never happens again.
