We made it through. The horrible wind, the constant rain, one wicked storm.
This past week has been quite challenging. I had a slight Epstein Barr/Fibromyalgia flare topped with a hurricane named Isaac. My children have not been to school in over a week. My husband, my mom, me and most people in the New Orleans area have not been to work in a week. This storm shut down close to 6 parishes, a major airport, well just about everything and flooded two cities who lost everything.
Being closed up in your house, riding out a storm with over 70 mph winds and unending rain and….. lets throw in no electricity for 4 days straight is not exactly what I would call a Labor Day celebration.I am going to express my opinion now and it might not be very nice but I’ve had enough…… To all those people out there who have passed negative comments about New Orleans and why the people there (like me) live here and don’t MOVE away because “we know we are going to get hit again and again by hurricanes”, try to reconsider your uneducated thoughts and comments. OK Einstein, lets learn some natural science. Natural disasters can happen ANYWHERE. Lets list some shall we:
