Katrina and the waves

August 29, 2005 @ 3:26am

Hurricane KatrinaWhen Niki and I were dating, we loved going to New Orleans. We had both been there a bunch separately before we met, but together we saw a bowl game in the Superdome, ate at Acme Oyster twice a day and had a blast in the French Quarter. So my thoughts are with my friends that live in New Orleans and my relatives in Hattiesburg who just called to say they were okay. They hadn't yet ventured out to inspect the damage because it was still incredibly windy, but hundreds of trees are down in their neighborhood, the power is out and the gas is out too.

I tried to explain where the hurricane's eye was in relation to them at this point and I think I did a good job, but just in case I've snagged a picture of it for them to check out once they get online again.

Of course it's no surprise that the Acme Oyster site is not loading. I'm sure they are hosted by a local ISP. They had a web cam that would let you watch people eat at the bar, but web cams don't work when you're underwater and without power. I hope they're okay and I can't wait to go back and visit them again.
