Grandparents are under mandatory evacuation. They’re in Lafayette. Mom, Dad, my sister & her boyfriend are staying in my parents’ house, a couple blocks north of the mandatory evacuation. My aunt and uncle will also be in town, about one block north of the mandatory evacuation. Others have gone west to Texas, and one will be staying in Baton Rouge.
Bottom line, it’s going to be bad for everyone in Louisiana, no matter where you live. We won’t really know who gets the worst until a few hours before landfall.
You never want to see Anderson Cooper in your hometown. It’s happened to me already. Let’s see what goes down this time.
PS, If you haven’t watched Ray Nagin make the latest ass of himself, do so here.
PPS, For those keeping score at home, Jim Cantore is currently the closest to the predicted site of landfall. He’s in Houma. Props to Cantore for convincing his producer there’s no need to join the New Orleans media clusterf*ck.
