Another, quick note post! 

On the Hill, we are without power still.  Vernon Parish has only 500 people left without power, and we’re some of those lucky few.  We should have power some time tonight.  YAY!  The work crews missed us when they left about 5pm yesterday!  So, everyone around has power except us!  I’m very annoyed to say the least. 


M. is in New Orleans still, and basically doing nothing but the occasional patrol to protect it from looters.  Yeah…I won’t say what I think about that!  For the record, there are areas a stones throw from us to the East that are seriously hurting and need help with clean up.  But just so long as Nagin and Jindal can pat themselves on the back, I guess we’re good (sarcasm intended!).  They should just change the name of the state to New Orleans Adjacent and get it over with. 


As far as damage, the Ghetto Trailer is in relatively good shape, and I really could have ridden out the storm in it without any trouble.  But, I went to Mom’s because officials insisted that you shouldn’t be in trailers.  Fortunately, the GT has solid steel gurters (I have no idea how that’s spelled) as its foundation, and is extremely well made for a piece of crap.  lol  It’s so heavy that the moving company that installed it almost refused to move it because of the weight.  Apparently, they stopped making trailers with that type of foundation about 1979.  Tell you anything?  lol


Luckily, all I lost was one piece of tin roofing.  I cannot find it ANYWHERE!  And, it’s bugging the crap out of me!  The neighbors haven’t seen it, and we can’t find it anywhere on the Hill!  It must be in the swamp.  So, maybe I can find it come winter when the leaves fall!


Hopefully, I’ll talk to ya’ll tomorrow!  Thanks for the well wishes!  Hugs to one and all!
