It’s getting kinda hectic. Hurricane Issac is heading this way, hopefully it’ll drop to a Cat 1 or Tropical Storm before he hits land.
While I was typing this, I just heard Bob Breck call it Tropical Storm Issac.
I hope he stays that way.
This weekend I had to help a nursing facility get ready for evacuation and ended up pulling a 23 hour shift Sunday….0_O
Don’t know how I did that. Hadn’t work that many hours in one shift in a long time.
The only reason I didn’t work longer is because you can’t work 24 straight hours.
I was wired but when I got home, I dropped like a brick.
To the nurses that kept making coffee for me…Y’ALL ROCK!!
Right after I left the facility, I headed to Walmart to get my hunker down hurricane food and other necessities.
They had about 30 of us early birders waiting for them to open up at 6 a.m. Even if the power goes out, I’ll still be able to cook because I have a gas stove so, we’re good to go.
We also have a big behind grill on standby.
*Entergy please don’t let the power stay off too long*
I checked my street to make sure all of the drains are clear of debris…gotta make sure the water can run off the street easily.
Well, we’re about the test out these new pumps at 17th street Canal. I had to pass there today..said a lil prayer that they do their thang when I did.
I think we’re ready…shit, if we can’t handle this…it’s time for me to cash in my NOLA chip.
The pumps did fine for Hurricane Gustav…we’re ready.
I wonder if I’m the only one who keeps forgetting that this thing is coming around the Katrina Anniversary.
A lot of transplant folks are getting real nervous.
Most folks are hunkering down unless they live in a low-lying area.
They’re closing the intracoastal canal (MR GO) for the first time with Issac.
I don’t think Issac is a true test for it because the storm isn’t strong enough to really test it but,it’ll give us a good peek at how it’ll do.
C and D batteries are gone out of every store in the area.
Someone real reliable told me that Lowes has a truck arriving at 4 a.m tomorrow morning with batteries.
I’ll be there waiting for the doors to open.
Can never have enough batteries.
Tomorrow night is gonna be hectic.
My daughter is nervous.
She still suffers with Katrina issues.
She’ll be sleeping in the room on her areobed with us tomorrow as the storm passes.
If I fall off the grid, that means I have no electricity.
I’ll get back on as soon as Entergy graces us with electricity again.
Catch y’all on the other side of this storm.
Everyone be safe out there!
