I kept hoping against hope that when I woke up this morning there would have been some sort of miracle. I was talking to a friend about it and we were wondering how you'd get through something like that - what possessions would you have to save, how helpless you would feel

I wish w/ all the technology we have they could find a way to stop hurricanes

That's frightening. The damage assessment is going to be horrible.

It's not looking good for us now. That storm is tearing up Baton Rouge, the Mobile airport is closed, I might end up being lucky to hold on to my knitting but I don't know. It's supposed to go through northern Mississippi and Alabama tomorrow. It's windy and rainy right now. I'm a nervous wreck. Please pray for us!

BATON ROUGE, La. Louisiana's attorney general says he'll punish price gouging after Katrina blows through.

Charles Foti says already his office has received nearly two dozen calls from people who say they were overcharged for gasoline or a hotel room. He's promising to aggressively prosecute the offenders.

Other complaints involve stores selling generators or canned goods at twice the normal price.

Gah, I feel ill for the people who had so little to begin with, people who were uninsured or underinsured and will be left not only with nothing, but with nothing to help them start over again...

And people are price-gouging. Nice. It would seriously kill my faith in humanity if I didn't also read stories about massive Red Cross mobilizations, churches and schools all over Louisiana opening their doors...
