I spoke with my parents up in Picayune, everybody is
fine, my sisters also spent the storm at my parent's house
so they are ok too. Apparently all the trees are down around
their houses, and one hit my sister's garage blocking in two
cars, and they lost most of the shingles on the roof, but
everyone is ok, which is most important.
Who knows what happened to my sister's house in slidell.
I checked on the web yesterday as the storm made landfall,
and the eye was centered on slidell, so it doesn't look good.
I'm glad she decided to spend the storm at my parents' place.
