It looks like Ida missed us, and after last year's two direct hits, I"m okay with that. While most of southeast Louisiana is in the dark this morning, awaiting daylight to start assessing the damage, we here in central Louisiana are okay.
Belle keeps a box of tissue on a table on the patio, and that is normally the first thing to leave during a storm. When I awoke this morning and went outside, the tissue was still there on the table. We never lost power and the breeze is out of the north.
While we're okay, a great number of our neighbors in southeast Louisiana are not. We will start learning the scope of the disaster after the sun comes up, but this was a big, slow-moving storm that kept hurricane status for over 12 hours after it came ashore. We will learn more as the day progresses.
PawPaw's acre is okay, and I thnk God for that. But when I talk with Him today, I'll ask Him to today, I'll ask Hi to look out for the people in southeast Louisiana and Mississippi.
