My computer's been down since Thursday; Dad only came back from his vacation last night so he has only begun investigating the problem this morning. I'm on my mother's computer now, but I can't stay on too long - it drives her bonkers to have someone else touch her computer. Can't blame her - it makes me nuts too.

I need to check in with Dad about Aunt Bonny and Uncle Jerry. They were supposed to move home from London this month to Slidell - but Slidell's pretty messed up right now, being in Louisiana and all. I want to find out if they need help, and/or if their plans or changed.

Ohh sweetie! Hope your aunt and uncle are okay. Where exactly is Slidell? I remember you mentioning you had family in LA. It's where Kreuger was from right?

Kruger was actually from San Jose, but he had a long, extended stay in Slidell, which is located near New Orleans - but I don't know the exact distance. They were definitely affected by the 'cane, tho'.

Now that I got my 'puter back, here's the update Aunt Bonny emailed: "Thank you for the kind messages and offers of assistance. At this time only residents with ID are allowed into Slidell to check on their property.

A variety of internet postings and an eye-witness on our street concur that we should expect many trees down and some house/property damage is likely, but probably not flooding on Steele Road in Old Cross Gates subdivision. Jerry's brother Legare is willing to come from South Carolina to deal with securing the house. It may be weeks before power is restored to the region. We will continue with our planned schedule to return on Sept. 30, although we may have to change our destination, possibly to South Carolina.

So, we are thankful to have a house, probably with a roof (at least in part), and a houseful of furniture (coming from London). We will be in touch when we know more."
