we are home!

Just because I haven't posted any car pictures lately,
here's a national guard convoy heading south on I-55 that
we passed on the way home.

Drove home yesterday, mostly uneventful, picked up Clay's
car at my dad's parents house and fixed some more server
stuff. We had power when we got back, and the cable came
on this afternoon.

My mom's parents that live in Mathews, LA-Lafourche Parish
made out alright, no power, just missing shingles and their
shed disappeared. I haven't heard about most of my cousins
yet but a lot of them live in Thibodaux so they should be okay.
Don't know anything about the extended cajun-italian family's
situation yet - pretty much all of them live in Lafourche or
Terrebonne somewhere. Hoping everyone came out ok.

(ps: pictures!)

My mom's back in Pine, down from S'port, and my bro should have made it back to Metairie by now.

Glad to hear y'all're all right!

I hear that Jefferson Parish is having sewage issues, but if Entergy can keep up the pace they will probably be fine.

Good to hear... glad it was all without incident. Of course, now that you're back, get ready to turn around and go again, courtesy Ike...

In theory that one is going to Texas. I hope.
Prepping backups tonight in any case. I lost a chunk of cash not working for one of the businesses I work for last week, don't really want to do that again.
