Governor Jindal has been wonderful. He has lined up federal assistance, national guard troops, distributed generators to nursing homes, bypassed federal regulations on shipping gasoline and supplies, requested additional MREs since we keep only two days worth in state.
He updates the citizens every 4 hours. Way better than the Katrina Governor Blanco who just sat there and cried because she was overwhelmed by it all.
Jindal just said that the next 30 minutes will be the worst weather yet for us in Baton Rouge. The band that is approaching is topping at 90 mph winds and sustained at 70 mph.
As he was talking I heard something roll across the roof. We went out to investigate and found that we have lost two of the roofing tiles that overlap the cap of the roof. So more will probably follow. And we know from experience that it may take months to get the roof repaired.
My poor roof! But we still have power! I am quilting the Plaid Bargello on the table in the den watching the hurricane pass through.
glen: I guess I need to call the quilt Isaac's Winds!
