Reporting from New Orleans
actually Marrero (south of N.O.)
Thank God we were spared the worst of Ivan. Thoughts and prayers to those who were not spared.
We still have power but about 35,000 or more don't. Now fortunatly I have the task of bring all the plants and other things back outside. But I am so thankful that I can do that, no complaints.
Thanks to all for the tips, even though I've been through it before. Sometimes in the haste and worry we can forget some of the simple things. I think I will go back through all the post and write a complete list (on computer and paper) for the next time. And hope there isn't a next time, but I know better.
Again......I am soooooo thankful that we did all the prep work for nothing.
I hope that our neighbors just west of here are able to recover quickly and return to normal.
