Please Pray

I’m sure most of you know that Hurricane Katrina is heading towards the New Orleans area. I don’t care if you’re Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, simply monotheistic (as myself), or even atheist… please wish the folks well that have to deal with this storm.

I dealt with Hurricane Elena in 1985 and I remember the sounds of the wind and the discomfort from not having power and fresh water. It’s not fun, but, it’s the price you pay for living in an area like that.

Katrina could end up being the worst ever. There’s talk of a 25-foot storm surge that would easily barrel over the levies that hold water out of New Orleans and spill it into the city itself. There’s speculation that the French Quarter might not be much of anything when it’s all said and done. The forecast is showing that there could even be a 20-foot storm surge in Mobile, AL… Mobile is about 140 miles east of New Orleans.

People are going to die in this storm. Let’s hope that enough people heed the warning and get out or get to a good shelter so that they’re as safe as possible.
