Hello from uptown new Orleans. We are fine. We lost power and cell phone service early this morning and land line phone service this afternoon. Everything's still off except the cells. Seem to have made a come back. I received several text messages and, let's see, Chris has eaten almost all the junk food. And part of our back yard fence fell down crushing a bunch of my plants which sucks but if we get off that easy I guess we'll be happy.
