Jarrod left about 4:30 this morning on this way to New Orleans. Please keep him in your prayers this next week!
He didn't find out for sure he was going to have to go until about 7pm last night! So we were in a mad dash to get everything together! They told him to pack for a week, but hopefully he will be back before then!
Here is a new news release from Entergy. . .
Sept. 2, 2008 @ 11:30 a.m. Hurricane Gustav made landfall Sept. 1, at 10 a.m., near Cocodrie, Louisiana. At the peak, 850,000 Entergy customers, primarily in Louisiana and Mississippi, had lost electrical service due to the storm. Hurricane Gustav caused the second largest number of outages in company history, behind only Hurricane Katrina. Gustav restoration rivals the scale and difficulty of Hurricane Katrina restoration. As of 11 a.m., more than 826,000 customers were still without power throughout the Entergy service territory. Nearly 24,000 Entergy customers have been restored whose electrical service was disrupted by Hurricane Gustav. Bad weather from the storm continues in the Entergy system, impeding progress to restore service and assess damage. Early assessments indicate extensive damage to Entergy’s system in Louisiana. The number of outages already known to have been caused by Gustav is the second highest in Entergy’s 95-year history. The only larger number was 1.1 million during Hurricane Katrina, which has been described as one of the worst natural disasters in American history.
I guess he picked a good week to be gone, since I am so busy! There is something planned every night until Saturday, so maybe I won't worry about him as much?!? Maybe, but doubtful!
I will be posting updates as I hear from him!
