We are safe and sound in NOLA. Ike is going elsewhere.

Thanks to everyone who has sent up prayers for the state of Louisiana and the city of New Orleans.  We simply could not have handled another hurricane after Gustave.  And, certainly not a Cat 3.  Gustave did some major damage to our levee walls in 29 areas and they are being repaired now.  This repair work is not connected to the Katrina work still underway and not to be completed until 2011.  So, there is still a lot of work to be done here in New Orleans. 

Tens of thousands in our region still are without power.  It is very hot here right now.  They are reliant upon MRE’s and ice from FEMA.  Power is being restored as fast possible. Many poles are out in the marshes and are highly difficult to restore.  So, please continue to pray for the people of Louisiana. 

On a lighter note, GEAUX SAINTS!!!!  WHO DAT SAY DEY GONNA BEAT DEM SAINTS??? WHO DAT? WHO DAT?

Lastly, my thoughts and prayers are with anyone in the path of Ike. 

Much New Orleans Love,
Heather Elizabeth
