Two Shopping Days Until Hurricane Season!
Yep, it's that time of year again! In two days the 2006 hurricane season begins. Everyone in the New Orleans area knows this. If they don't it's because they've been living under a rock! That's all any of the news programs talk about. Supposedly everyone is ready. The levees are said to be at pre-Katrina strength. Evacuation routes have been mapped out. Emergency plans have been made by the local governments. Here's hoping we don't have to go through what we went through last year. Will we get another hurricane this year? I don't know. Will we get another storm like Katrina? I really don't think so. I truly think that Katrina was one of those once-in-a-lifetime storms. We will just have to wait and see. It's just sad that it took a hurricane like Katrina to wake up people and get them to take all these precautions. It's also annoying to see hurricanes constantly being talked about on TV. That's all we see here! I know Katrina was a wake-up call, but enough is enough!
If you are a praying person, please pray that all coastal areas escape this hurricane season with little or no damage and no loss of life. I can't wait for November 30 to get here!
