Hurricane Katrina

Written By: alb3rt - Aug• 28•05

I think it already hit us Thursday and Friday. We must be near the coastline. All the contents of the kitchen shifted into the living room earlier, and now the doors on the cupboards are gone, as are all shelves, curtains and the like.

The cats have been relocated to the bathroom and/or bedroom while Ken already started with repair work. The first order of affairs seems to be painting everything remaining in the kitchen white, then yellow. Maybe this is a signal for help.

I will keep you posted. If things get worse, I will set up a relief fund. I wonder if they let Koalas use PayPal.

P.S. Why did they name the hurricane after the small rodent at our preserve? If they knew it would hit here, they should have given us more warning. Apparently, the field of meteorology has a long way to go.

    Apparently what happened to the preserve was nothing comared to what happened farther south. I heard a lot of terrible stories about rescuing people and animals.
    But I do not understand why the people in charge didn’t get all the people and animals out beforehand. Were some of them forgotten? Did some refuse to leave? I hardly think the animals would be that dumb.
    But our disaster was limited to the living room. Here are the pictures I promised.
