Madonna Send Us Some Kabbalah Water!
Anyway... landlines back up, cell not. I am running out of gasoline. My cousin's expedition ended up being impossible yesterday. THANKS for trying S. I know that I will see you in a few days.
Trust me though, I will NOT go off the air. I am a survivor and will scrounge. I have had numerous messages from neighbors saying siphon from their extra cars and such. Thanks to all of y'all.
Yesterday I drove and sat in a moderate line for MRE's, ice and water. That was my first ice cube since Monday. Pretty sweet and the dog enjoyed them too. MRE's taste like chicken...
I was fascinated by the mini Tabasco bottle in the MRE that I ate (Country Captain Chicken, it was actually a curried chicken with mashed potatos and some red hots), odd that that little touch of Louisiana started at Avery Island, LA, went all the way to Brooklyn to be packaged, and then was eaten by me down here - not but 100 miles away.
The people returning home into this area are very light and mostly to take out family heirlooms, pictures, etc.
On my rounds yesterday, I saw the first real signs of Parish officials, including a JP cop. I also met (and gave out cold water to, all they had was hot water) two guys checking on the status of power lines in the area - they were from Orlando, FL... THANK YOU! And a Kentucky State Trooper patrolling the area around Little Farms... THANK YOU!
Speaking of Little Farms, the playground is 100% fine, St. Matthews Church and School are 100% fine. John Curtis School is 100% fine. (Superficially of course.)
I am rushing this post, forgetting tons of things, in order to get it out. After this I will regroup my head and post again.
Thanks again too everyone. Also, noticed that Blogger people have deleted a few comments that must have been outrageos or whatever, thanks. I would also love it if y'all could remove the spam comments, they're disgusting. You definately have my permission, unless they are regarding Katrina blogs or Gulf Coast stuff. Thanks.
