I've put up some more Gustav pics in my Flickr set - mostly just photos of the destruction around town, taken while I was driving (so forgive the less-than-stellar composition and exposure, por favor). Here are a few highlights:
Power lines. Power lines power lines power lines. Down. Everywhere.
There are parts of the parish (what we call a county in LA, don't ask) that will be without power for three weeks. Three weeks.
So many people have trees on/in their houses. Suck.
But, there is some good news!
Blue tarps!!!!! The blue tarps have arrived, my friends, and they are popping up all over town!
Now, we're just hoping and praying and crossing fingers, legs, and toes that Ike doesn't hit us too badly!
