Always fighting the last war

Four years ago during Crazy Freak Out '08 everyone overreacted to the Katrina experience.  This resulted in much discontent for other reasons. This time around, we're all working off of that Gustav experience and are resolved not to make those specific mistakes again. 

What will happen this time no one can say but I did just watch Bob Breck personally guarantee that the levee improvements make Orleans Parish a pretty safe place to be so that that for what it's worth.

Meanwhile we're doing laundry.  Oh and I'm charging up the camera because lord knows we'll need a photographic record of this debacle as well. 

Just for giggles and nostalgia and whatnot, here's that Gustav photoset.

If you want a great suggestion for a good piece of hurricane gear, try one of these:

They are worth their weight. It's a second battery where you keep it in your pocket. When your phone runs low, connect it up in your pocket and it tops it up. It has ~90% of the watt-hours of my Samsung and it actually means I can use the phone without completely being screwed by the end of the day.
