We still haven't heard from my father-in-law. All phone lines are still down.
We're not worried about him -- he and his wife were staying in a brick hotel in Hammond, LA, on higher ground, and they'd put all their animals in a shelter there -- but the house was on Lake Pontchartrain, which is now a few miles wider than it used to be. So the house is surely flooded. The question is how much damage it took from the wind and how much damage the flooding will have done.
They are not hyper wired people, so we haven't had anything like an email from them.
We're fretting, a bit.
Not hearing from your family would drive me nuts. I know I cannot do anything really affective all the way from Montreal but I donated my salary from the gig (corporate) I did Tuesday night in Mont Charles to the Red Cross. I hope your family is safe. And safe home to all the rest.
I hope you hear from your family soon. My best to them and you.
Hope you hear soon but experience from the Ice Storm tells me that they may be a little busy with other things for awhile. Expect it to be about a week.
