Mom sent me a link to a good blog to keep up with the latest information on Katrina.
It also links to blogs from New Orleans that are still up and running. Definately a different way to hear what's going on.
PS - To my Mom's friend, Wanda, in Mississippi:
I really hope you and the kitty babies survived the storm, Wanda. I think about you every day and cannot wait til we hear from you. We love you and our prayers are with you.
