It seems that most people are taking the storm very seriously. Folks are already hoarding lumber, protecting their homes and getting to higher ground.
As for my own accomodations -- well -- our hotel in downtown New Orleans is being evacuated. I do have a lead on another hotel that's decided to weather the storm. At the worst, I'll be camped out in the lobby with my handy sleeping bag.
And this note --- Armstrong International Airport is shutting down on Sunday. The last flight out of town is 6 p.m.
More coming later -- I'm heading over to Cafe de Monde.
