Update from my part of Louisiana

Well, we started classes today at the college. We are still running on generator power and there are no phones, but we have Internet -- although it is not real reliable right now. I am hopeful that I will be able to get my advanced students blogging, but I am not counting on anything at this point in time. I am just glad to see them again!

People here are in kind of shock. None of us can tell you much about the last two weeks. Many people still don't have power and/or water, and many people are not back in there homes yet -- and may never be. The good news is that things are moving forward. As gasoline and food have become more readily available and banks are opening up again, we can begin to take control of our lives again.

I am looking forward to getting back on here more regularly. I thank you for being patient with me in the meantime.
