i'm pretty bad at chronicling, obviously.

they made it mandatory evacuation yesterday, so james and i left. it took us 15 f'ing hours to get to birmingham. contra flow is the stupidest thing i've ever seen.the cats were fine until about midnight, and then they decided to fight. awesome. we're watching the news to figure out when we can go back and such.

currently, there is overtopping at the industrial canal, which means the lower ninth is flooding a little, and water is coming in from the lake.

Ugh. And it was just downgraded to Category 2 so hopefully it won't be too bad this time.

Still, glad you got out safe. Good luck.
