Hurricane hits home: MIA grammy

My grandma (the one who blogs) and my pap recently rode out Hurricane Katrina at their Jackson, Mississippi home. It thankfully veered east.

My dad finally spoke with them this evening--their phone service was gone for more than three days; they are living on generator power and a limited water supply.

But they made it.

This is one of the rare occasions when the reporter veneer vanishes, and I'm left staring in awe, just like everyone else, at the destruction and chaos of disaster.

My prayers and love go with the victims in New Orleans, Biloxi and all the areas affected by this malicious storm.

Glad to hear that grammy is okay. This is scary stuff, this hurricane business. My sister, who is named Katrina, has been catching a lot of flak for this one... Reminds me of anyone named Ivan around this time last year. Prayers abounding.

Thanks for the good news. I'm over here in Sicily and I haven't been able to get a hold of the family. If you talk to them again, tell them i love them and my prayers are with them.
