I know a lot of you guys are asking how my job can make me go back so soon after a Hurricane. Well, the deal is, I work in New Orleans. And as you may have seen from the TV, NOLA got out of Gustav rather easily. I live in Houma which caught the brunt of the storm. I also work for a government contractor, and the gov't wants to open back up as soon as possible. I've used most of my vacation, so they are being real nice about letting me take time off without pay rather than just firing my ass. I'm the only person from Houma that works there, so they really don't care about just one person. Had this storm destroyed New Orleans, it would be a different story.
I've updated the maps page to Ike rather than Gustav. Ol' Gustavo is gone with the wind and Ike is our new contender for "Mother of all storms" (right Mayor Nagin?). And if Hurricane Ike is anything like Ike Turner, we may get slapped around a little bit. Let's just hope he decides he wants to go to Colombia or something and get some cocaine rather than come to Lousiana and slap some coonasses around.
I'm really getting tired of this crap.
