In the Dark
The news this morning was looking decidedly optimistic as most hurricane force winds missed New Orleans. We had the news and such on until one o’clock this afternoon when the power went out and stayed out. Over the course of the day, the weather remained rough with intermittent rain and high winds. Many tree branches fell from trees but that was largely the extent of damage near us. We never even attempted to go to the hotel this afternoon. It was somewhat fortunate that the air was cool, if wet and there was a pretty stiff breeze coming through the windows.
