Massive change is coming to New Orleans

By August 28, 2005August 5th, 2015Uncategorized

So I tried to leave New Orleans today at 12:30 pm but after 4 hours of driving I had only made it 15 miles.  I was alone and tired so I decided the safe play was to return.

It’s sad when the “safe play” is to go back and be pounded a Category 5 hurricane.

Katrina is going to completely change the City I live in.  As I have said many times, I like change.  However, this isn’t what I had in mind.

So, basically I’m like everyone else who is caught off guard by massive change.  Oh well, I’ll adjust.

Perhaps I can also document some of what happens.  I have my cellphone, which has a camera, and I’ll try to take some pictures and upload them to the Flickr photo site.

I almost certainly won’t have power soon (if the cellphone towers get hammered, which is pretty much a given).   I probably won’t be able to post much to the web, but  I have my paper journal.  It never needs rebooting.  So I’ve got that going for me.

For now, I’m in a safe place and I’ll survive the storm, although I won’t enjoy being in it.  Hopefully it won’t be as devastating as they say it will be.

Odds are it will very bad for the city.

Here’s how I look at it: I am about to have a unique experience and a very powerful one.  I intend to make the most of it.

That’s really all one can do at this point.
