I should have mentioned much sooner that Ernie’s three kids are very safe and sound with their mom (and pets) at a friends house in Lafayette. Unlike someone else we know (and love) they acted early and evacuated in time to avoid the hurricane and the crazy aftermath. Good job! I think their cell phones are working should you need to contact them but I do know for sure that SMS/text messaging over cell phones is working (everywhere). If you dont know how to text message, this is a really good time to learn. ~R.S.
