E Vac You A She Own!!

It's 1:38 am central standard time and Eddie and I are packing and getting ready to hightail it outta Sliiiiiidell, Loooosiana. We don't really have a choice, as they've issued a mandatory evacuation of our Parish.

We got our truck back from the Hillbilly Trio and although it's STILL not fixed, we will be making our way a few hours north to have them repair what Cletus, Bubba, Enos and the wife with no teeth "couldn't done figger out."

We will be joining the thousands of others in the evacuation process so we won't be here when the winds, flooding and possible tornadoes hit. Did I hear someone say something about locusts?? Fire and brimstone? I mean, really, what else could happen?

When we hit higher ground, I'll post again. In the meantime, keep your eyes on Gustav and we'll keep our eyes on the road.

There's a reason why the most famous drink in the Big Easy is called
The Hurricane.

Take care and I hope you get somewhere to really get the truck fixed...don'tcha just love hillbillys without a clue? Are you at the TA in Slidell? I spent many hours there waiting to swap loads with other drivers. Swampy. So happy I missed the hurricanes.
