I pulled up a couple of my potato plants today and I got (ta dah) POTATOES!! Who wouldda thought?!
My daughter is in New Orleans tonight, riding out the storm - or preparing to, because there's nothing but a little rain at the moment, but we both know that Isaac is drawing near. She has no transportation of her own, so she signed up with the city for evacuation, but none was ordered. And then tonight she got an automated call saying that evacuation was mandatory, but there will be no buses, so it's a moot point for her and many like her. The anniversary of Katrina and it sounds like the city hasn't learned how to do anything except cover its own butt. There's every expectation that my daughter will ride out the storm without incident. But it's going to be a long night.
