Sunday, August 28, 2005

It's getting darker and it's very, very overcast right now. It rains, pretty hard, for a few seconds or a few minutes, then stops.

The Interstate (I-10) has slowed to a snail's pace; sometimes stopping completely. I fear there will be many people trapped on it when the storm hits.

More on the reason this storm is so bad for New Orleans, from a Yahoo! News report:

For years, forecasters have warned of the nightmare scenario a big storm could bring to New Orleans, a bowl of a city that's up to 10 feet below sea level in spots and dependent on a network of levees, canals and pumps to keep dry. It's built between the half-mile-wide Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain, half the size of the state of Rhode Island.

Estimates have been made of tens of thousands of deaths from flooding that could overrun the levees and turn New Orleans into a 30-foot-deep toxic lake filled with chemicals and petroleum from refineries, and waste from ruined septic systems.

As I said, many many people are "stuck" in the city and cannot leave. They need your thoughts, and prayers.

As for me, Baret's gone and I've just taken a nice, long bath (may not be able to do that again for awhile). All of my supplies are around me, and my two kitties and we're just...waiting.

At this moment there is no wind whatsoever, which is creepy. It blows up periodically, but, like the rain, doesn't last.

Street lights are on, to give you an idea of the darkness - that usually wouldn't be happening until closer to 8pm (it's 6:30pm right now). One thing I remember about Andrew was the complete darkness; that was scary. Morning came, and with it the storm - but the Sun, the Sun never did come. It remained dark until late that afternoon, when Andrew had run its destructive course. I'm guessing we'll see the same thing tomorrow morning. It's an eerie thing to wake up at 7am and not see the Sun rise.

As I close this, there are nothing but brake lights on I-10 Westbound; it has stopped completely for awhile.

More to come...
