Hurricane Isaac is headed for land!
Well, there is is boys and girls, Hurricane Isaac, in all his glory. Headed for New Orleans and predicted to hit 7 years to the day after Hurricane Katrina.
Lets just hope that the warm Gulf waters don’t bring Isaac to life like they did Katrina.
Of course we all know that Mother Nature is a fickle witch, Isaac could turn more to the East and miss New Orleans, or he could turn to the West and rip hell out of Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana, he’s just too far out to tell at this time.
My daughter-in-Law April is in South Louisiana, as are my twin girls Lisa and Sharon, and in that mix I have 4 grandsons and a grand-baby on the way, I know Lisa and April will both gather kids, clothes and dog and head OUT of the danger area if it looks like the part of Louisiana they are in is going to take a bad hit.
My daughter Sharon … well, I am not sure what she’ll do. If her step-dad was home they would be packing and getting set to go, but he’s working overseas right now, and Sharon will stay in place if her mother refuses to leave.
All I can do is hope that Isaac spares everyone a wicked blast, Louisiana can handle a little tropical storm or a lower Cat hurricane.
My son is still on assignment with State Farm and he’s nowhere near this storm, and a few other things to be thankful for, the 256th BCT La. Army National Guard isn’t off in Iraq, Governor Bobby Jindal has already declared an emergency and the wheels are in motion.
The best that can be said is thank GOD Louisiana doesn’t have another Kathleen Babineaux Blanco and Ray-Ray Nagin running the show.
