The greater New Orleans area was inundated with rain throughout the day. Several parts of the city flooded resulting in destroyed cars and damaged homes and businesses. Due to the weather, Dad and I never made it out of the house this morning. Dad sent the nurses home early although I’m sure Bianca had a hell of a time getting home from Metairie. Schools across the city closed early, including Tulane.I planned on skipping class today and seeing Ann Coulter speak at Tulane. Dad and I were brave enough to try and drive to campus this evening but turned around and came home once we reached a portion of General De Gaulle Drive that was flooded and impassible. After watching the local news that evening, we were certain we made the right call.The two 500GB hard drives I won on eBay last week arrived today, along with the Netflix DVDs I thought were lost. I installed the drives in my computer this evening and set up a RAID 1 array for mirrored backup. Generally I have two copies of everything but this makes certain of it. Even so I’m still screwed if the house burns down so I’m considering keeping a drive at an office with rsync for remote backup.Later this evening I watched last Friday’s episode of Stargate: Atlantis and talked to Krystle on the phone for a short while.
