Talking Re: By-By IVAN

Just got back from Sportsman Marina-the damage is unbelievable!The police chief gave me clearance to check on it because my wife is manager there,but they are keeping everybody off the roads.I don't think they are gonna let anybody on the roads at least until tomorrow.The damage I saw on Canal Road is awful. I heard there is a lot of water on the Gulf side of the island.As soon as I can talk my way to the other side of the island I will check on every one's property...just post me some directions.The big lumber yard right beside my house looks like a bomb site.....my house didn't lose a shingle...strange,very strange.........Ricky

Ron,

Glad to hear your in laws came to Baton Rouge. Mom and dad were worried about them. Looks like your generator purchase saved us.

Ricky,
Glad ya'll made it through the storm! We were watching the weather channel all evening yesterday and it wasn't looking good for the Alabama coast. We're just waiting on all the rain to get here. Think I'll move the trucks outside and cover them with soap!

what is the Flora-Bama, the name keeps coming up? Such a beautiful area.......such a shame. I can't stop thinking about everyone there. Be careful they keep saying more people get hurt after the storm than during it.

The Flora-Bama is the last great American Roadhouse. The rich and famous and the poor and unknown alike have been drunk there,an absolute landmark and legend. www.florabama.com
