I'm OK...

...but Louisiana isn't.

I'll write more tonight. I've relocated to Anniston, AL for a while so I can continue to work.

I'm really, really frustrated that the media (and therefore the rest of the country) isn't acknowledging how bad all this really was. New Orleans is fine, so the rest of the state must be fine. In reality, about 90% of the state is in really, really bad shape. At one point in time, the largest energy company in the state had 1.4 million of its 1.9 million customers without power, and in fact still has 750,000 without. It is going to take a long, long time to recover from this because of how widespread the damage was.

But New Orleans is fine, so who cares?
