H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

Wednesday, September 21st - Updated


When we first evacuated New Orleans, we went to Orlando and people thought we were crazy not to be going to Texas. We thought, hey, EVERYONE is going to Texas, and if New Orleans is the target, then Orlando should be pretty safe. As it turns out, looks like at least as far as Katrina and Rita are concerned, we made a good decision. Now we're concerned with our daughter-in-law, who is in Houston. She was going to come back to Algiers, but New Orleans appears to be shut down for now. Will it reopen in time for her to get out of Houston and back to NOLA?

And still 2 1/2 months of hurricane season to go!!

Come on, prayer warriors!! We need some divine intervention!

It's 10:30 am and I've spoken to a couple of the New Orleans Herricks and one Houston Herrick. Looks like the daughter-in-law is going to make a run for New Orleans. Apparently the West Bank is still open, so she should be able to get home ok. Seems kind of strange to hear someone heading to New Orleans to escape a hurricane after all that's happened. If the storm does turn North, my deputy sheriff son-in-law assures me that they are planning to "beat feet" out of there. The one who works for the NEX says they are sending him to P'Cola if the evacuation actually is necessary. So, I guess everyone is pretty well covered, and has a plan of action, just in case.
