Katrina did nothing to Lake Charles, but Rita did. I’m in a shelter in Shreveport with five of my closest friends or family members, for how long we will be close, who knows.

My mom is still in Lake Charles with her friend; they rode out the storm at home, but officials are asking everyone to get out so that they can get Lake Chuck back in working order.

I can’t even begin to tell you all the goings on here, except to say it is an experience and a half. I have learned a lot about myself and others. More to come later. I’m charging up my laptop batteries.

Never thought I would say this, but I MISS Lake Chuck, ;-(
