Hey, you took the importnat stuff with you.

Any idea when you'll be able to get in your place and survey the damage? Actually, do you know yet whether or not your building is still standing? N'Orleans is an old city, and I've heard stories of flood damage alone bringing down old buildings, not to mention the crazy winds a hurricane kicks up.

my house is a brick house and as far as i can tell my neighborhood was fine until the flooding.  so i'm sure there's a house there, it's just full of water.  probably won't be let back into the city for a week and a half at the very earliest.  the roads are impassable, the power grid has to be rebuilt, the water has to be pumped out, and there's no potable water.  i still haven't been able to find out exactly how bad my neighborhood is, but if everything's as horrible as they say, i might not even go back.  but i'm trying not to think about that right now.  

maybe i should sell my car and ride around on a greyhound for a month.  that would be kind of cool.

Ooh, martial law has been declared.  Now looters can be machine-gunned, right?  Escape from New Orleans!

Get your movie scripts ready!

"The Night of the Dirty Bomb: Trapped in the bunker"

Find -- Replace

New Orleans

Flood

Attic

Superdome

-------
National Guardsmen let some of the 10,000 people sheltering inside the arena take their bedding out onto the concourse, where it was cooler and the breeze was welcome.

"Oh God, fresh air, it's so wonderful. It's the first time I've wanted to breathe all day," said Robin Smith, 33. "When you think what we could've gone through, it's not too bad in there. But it's certainly not as wonderful as this."

The bathrooms were filthy, and barrels overflowed with trash. With the air conditioning off since power went out Monday morning, the bricks were slick with condensation.

Despite the conditions, the Superdome was a welcome refuge for people rescued from the rising water in the city Tuesday. National Guard troops brought refugees in their big trucks, and Louisiana's wildlife enforcement department brought more people by pickup.

Mary Stewart, 80, slid off the back of a National Guard truck with nothing but the clothes on her back, her purse and the shoe on her left foot.

"I was so scared I don't feel I have any entrails any more," said Stewart, who spent a harrowing night in the attic of a beauty salon in the city's flooded Ninth Ward.

Beauty salon employee Kioka Williams, 23, said they had to hack through the ceiling to reach the attic as the water rose.

"Oh my God, it was hell," she said. "We were screaming, hollering, flashing lights. It was complete chaos."

The eight people in the salon were rescued early Tuesday by a police boat.

I like how I see these horrible pictures of destroyed neighborhoods and the first thought that comes to my mind is, "Well, at least you could get some good swim training in!"

Sorry to see that your block has been rezoned "Atlantis Theme Park". If, for some godawful reason, you end up in California, PM me and I can help you out with whatever.

I think I'd rather funnel bong water than try to swim in that muck.  That's probably some of the dirtiest water on earth... not to mention all the live electrical wires and seeping gas lines.  You probably couldn't swim a mile in it without running into some serious danger.
