well, candace and i evacuated new orleans and went to her parent’s home north of atlanta, georgia. i don’t know how long it will be until we can go home. we’re seeing video of new orleans on tv and there is a lot of flooding. the mayor said that 80% of the city is flooded. we have a second floor apartment in gentilly, but haven’t heard any news of gentilly. hopefully, everyone we know that stayed in new orleans is okay. we haven’t been able to get through on our cell phones.
