About Katrina

Weren't we fortunate? We sell our house in Boca and buy a condo in Ft Lauderdale just months before Katrina makes landfall in South Florida...the first hurricane to hit the area since Andrew in '92. But yes, we were indeed fortunate. Katrina was only a Cat 1. We've spoken to several friends in Boca and Ft Lauderdale and we're relieved to hear that everyone has weathered thru it. Our friends Jim and Chris even hunkered down in their RV through the storm. You can read about their experience on their weblog.

But we continue to watch the news of the catastrophic damages in LA and MS. Passport America, our discount campground club and mail-forwarding service, is located in Gulfport, MS. Andy's brother, Jimmy, has his company's headquarters located in New Orleans. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in these areas. Hoping they survived this Cat 4 and find the courage and strength to rebuild what they've lost. Even our little Nikki, our parakeet we buried last year in Mandeville, LA on the north shore of Lake Ponchartrain, may he continue to rest in peace.
