Another Day, Another Bitch
First Katrina came raging in, devastating New Orleans and annihilating Biloxi. Now here along comes Rita, the next bitch in line, to wreak havoc on the western edge of Louisiana and desolate the Texan gulf border. Real nice.
And, folks, hurricane season isn't over until November 30.
I suppose nothing can really prepare you for evacuating like that - for leaving behind your entire life (homes, heirlooms, sometimes vehicles, pets, or other family members) with the knowledge that it may be gone when you return. I hope I never have to know.
Baton Rouge is located pretty far north, as far as the coastline is concerned. It's not that we aren't affected when a huge storm blows in, but we're rarely (if ever) affected like those closer to the coast.
I really don't know what to say. As we sit here and wait for another major city, and more precious, irreplaceable quaint towns and charming beaches, to be completely destroyed and all but ruined, what can you say? What can you do? Sit and wait - and hope it won't be as bad as it seems it will be.
