I have ideas:
That involve Baton Rouge, a 3-bedroom house, and tomfoolery.

We're shit out of luck also. We might end up having to stay in Monroe with Danielle's family renting a townhouse or something until we know we can return to St. Bernard.

You have my sympathy and condolences. I have been watching the coverage on CNN International all morning.

The devastation appears fantastic.

I just listened to Nagin on WWL (you were sleeping), and he said the levee broke near old hammond highway. He said it was a breach about 1.5 to 2 blocks long and that there was nothing they could do to repair it, however he did not say which side of the levee it was that broke. I don't know what this means, but from what Nagin said the outlook of the city as a whole doesn't look good. :(

it sounds like the levee busted on the bellaire side. we are estimating atleast the first floor of my parents house is flooded and probably the second.
