But I Just Can’t Spend My Whole Life Just-a Waiting For You

August 27th, 2005

Wow, it’s been weeks since the last hurricane post. OK, so looks like Katrina is coming. And not in that she’s gonna hit the northern Gulf coast kind of way. I think she’s gonna stroll right down Canal Street (edit, new model released two seconds ago says maybe it’s going to Gulfport). It has a projected landfall of 1:00 AM Monday. That’s only 40 hours away. They project it takes 60-72 hours to evacuate the entire New Orleans metropolitan area. Great planning guys. Three Parishes have already ordered manditory or voluntary evacuations. But we have to wait until noon for the press conference for the decissions made about Orleans Parish (edit, another Parish just went to mandatory evacuation). And with the projected path, going east is not an option. Also, going west is not an option. So, if I go, looks like I’m heading to Dallas again. Not only that, I’m supposed to work tonight through Wednesday. I don’t wanna die, but I don’t wanna lose my job either. THIS SUCKS SO MUCH!!! This has totally caught me off guard. Thursday night, Katrina wasn’t even a concern of mine. Friday afternoon, I’m kinda thinking about it and stopping by The Weather Channel more often. And Saturday morning, I’m sitting here agonizing about making this decission. Should I stay or should I go now? If I go there will be trouble, and if I stay it will be double. FUCK ME! FUCK ME! FUCK ME!
Ignore all that stuff earlier. I’m going to Dallas. Hope everyone along the north central gulf coast is safe.
