Update Sunday 7:30pm

Eerie..... that's what the I-10 corridor looks like going to work. No cars, scary clouds overhead, light rain and just a little wind. It's quiet. Breaux Bridge looks like a ghost town. Walmart is CLOSED... you really know your butt is in a sling when the local Walmart is closed. Businesses are boarded up and no one is on the street except the fool who is typing this blog.....and I was on my way to work. I have food, toothbrush, hairbrush and lipstick.... now really, I am WAY prepared. I came into work to the gentle voices of people yelling at each other over the schedule. My feeling is just shut the hell up, we have a job to do and we get paid. The upside is I have good food, toothbrush, and the prayers of many.... so I am blessed. We still have people here in Breaux Bridge that haven't left. One of my favorite patients (with permission I use her name) Doris Rollins is staying with her adopted son and his wife the Guidrys. Please say abundant prayers for them. She has breathing problems that become severe in a short time and she would never make it to the hospital during the storm. I am on a short fuse and people are still bitching about coming in. My feeling is they don't show up.....terminate their butts.
On that friendly note..... I will close and write later. Love to all.

I keep checking in with your blog to see how things are going. I can't begin to imagine what it must be like. I'll be praying for everyone and that the storm will not be as bad as they are calling for this time. You're in my prayers!!!

I too keep checking in. It seems like the news isn't saying too much about your area. But like Carrie... I too and worried about poor Bentley. I said a little prayer for him last night.

You all are in my prayers

Ha, I was in Breaux Bridge just a few months, ago! Ate at the little cafe just down the street from the bridge and on the east side of the cemetery.
