It looks like the eye will be on the westside of New Orleans.

Is it possible that this will be right back over Lake Charles that was damaged by hurricaneS so badly last year?! :oops: ?!

Maybe it's just not meant to be that there is are 150,000 people living there. Good Gracious

News just showed Grand Isle, it’s all but wiped out. It’s a barrier island, durned if I know why people want to build homes on a flat stretch of sand in the ocean.
It’s like our Boliver Peninsula after hurricane Ike. It was flattened. A friend had a beach house, we had stayed in it before. It was gone, just gone.

And, Wednesday passed - with no message from Ridgerunner. I wonder if he and his wife returned quickly to their Louisiana home, with so many communities without electricity.

How often do we think about the infrastructure that figures so prominently in modern existence? Imagining "camping" as a simplified life doesn't really get us there. So much of what we take with us is not of our making. Our homes, especially, are connected to the larger and complex system.
