We left NO this morning at 7am, went to the LSU game at 10am, and are at my parents' house in Baton Rouge. We're planning on staying here for the duration. We've got a generator, two five gallon cans, and five cars worth of gas tanks (sadly the truck is still at home). I went nuts and bought way more than enough bottled water, even thought BR rarely gets boil orders. The largest windows in our house are boarded up. The Beeb is standing guard with us to bite Gustav's feet and eat his Cat 4 socks. I even went as far as to bring my DirecTV box so we can watch WDSU.

So now we wait and hope we make out ok. The problem is that when you're from Louisiana, chances are you know someone who is about to lose everything..perhaps again. Wish us luck.
