The (Rather Un)Usual Drill

We'd been planning to visit friends in Alabama for the long weekend anyway. Now—thanks to Gustav—we're more elaborately planning for a somewhat longer weekend in Alabama.* The drill has begun: Move everything inside. Move everything upstairs. Batten down the hatches. Pack up the kids, pets, and valuable documents. Cram them all into the overstuffed clown car. (Park the other car on high ground.) And sometime today/tonight, away we go.

* Personal opinion (not technically a fact): It's going to slowly tick west and New Orleans will get little more than a blustery day. (I'll bet a twenty on it.) But you gotta do what you gotta do.


  1. May you win your best! We'll be staying tuned.
