It all started Friday Aug 26th,2005 with the models shifting west to Nola, Miss. Gulf Coast.
Jr. was home from the first week of middle school, jus off the Bus.
I remember thinking, Sat,..action day, Sun evac day.
Sam would leave Sat with the Dominican Gurl's, Jr. and Teresa would roll out Sunday Morning.
They wouldn't get to Memphis for 36 hours.
I was alone.
They were all gone now.
It was just me, my German Shepard Nova and Sassy, my nieces Huskie.
It was late afternoon August 28th, 2005.
I would not see them again till Sept 16th, 2005 when I flew out of New Orleans to Memphis to reunite with them there.
9 years has past and were all still here.
A lot has transpired for me here at wunderground, most all of it fine memories which has given me the opportunity to meet some really interesting people.
When we were in the FEMA trailer in 2006 I began blogging about the whole experience which leads up to today in time.
Were OK, we've been thru calamity and came out the other side whole, a lot wiser, taller and stronger.
Tomorrow, we will remember what we lost, those precious lives taken way too soon.
We will ring bells, sing songs, dance and cry.
It's our way.
And I for one, am very Okay with it.
