Did you dodge all the tornadoes in the New Orleans area last night? I thought about you when I saw the news this morning!

Weather was BAD...but we're fine. I have some yard work to do now...and I'm picking up some of the brand new shingles we just put on the roof!

Thanks for worrying about me. I'm feeling kinda lucky today!

I'm glad to hear you were spared severe damage. Looks like some areas of N.O. were hit pretty badly. But doesn't it just gripe you that the "new roof" now has to be repaired!!! :evil: How aggravating! Oh well. Could have been worse -- glad it wasn't!

DH is working in New Orleans. I'm waiting for my morning phone call. He stays with friends there during the week. I'm sure he will be able to give me all the details. From what I hear FEMA trailers were flipped and houses just repaired from Katrina were flattened.

I'm glad I've got a roof to repair!

Tornados from New Iberia to New Orleans about a 200 mile range. The wind and hail were horrific at my house. We managed to get all of the cars under carports before the hail came. The weather warnings were chirping all over the TV and computers for about 2 hours before the storm hit. At one point the local weather guy was telling each area when they could expect the storm, down to the minute. So much better than Katrina when we lost all communication 6 hours before the storm hit.

I had the grandchildren last night, they slept through the whole thing!

Melody,

I have friends in Abita Springs, on the North side of the lake. I'm glad to hear you escaped relatively unscathed, and I'm still waiting to hear from them.

Dean

Dean, they were getting hammered early this morning. Probably as bad there as it was in New Orleans. Hope your friends are okay!

Glad you were safe, and only have minor damage.
