Harricane Katrina - Preparations

These doors to our house survived the Civil War.

My sister was married in front of them.

Hopefully Katrina won't bring them down.

The winds are starting to pick up, though no rain bands have crossed through the city as of yet. Katrina's track appears to be jogging ever so slightly east, which unfortunately means the we'll have sustained northerly winds over Lake Pontchartrain. The levees may in fact be topped.

Reports on WWL Radio are that traffic on Airline Hwy from the city to LaPlace is stopped. People are standing outside of their cars... this is a three lane highway.

More later... lots of work to do.
