j'y telephonerais

My grandparents live in Slidell, which is here . On the north shore of Pontchartrain, in the NOLA area, so they drove up to my mother's house the other day. It's an hour and a half drive, but it took them 6.5 hours to make it because of all the traffic. Crazy. Anyway all the phone lines over there are STILL not working even today, so I haven't been able to call over to Mom's house to see what's been going on with them. Hope that they're not dead.

Damn.
I pray that they are OK. Have you heard anything about the area they live in?

Re: Damn.
I talked to my sister late last night and apparently things are relatively okay in BR, just some flooding and power outage for a day or three. My grandparents are still there for some more days because they won't open the roads to traffic yet, so they're going to WalMart today to buy them enough close to last until whenever they are allowed to go home. I hope their home is okay, I don't know how badly the north shore was hit but Slidell is pretty much just rural areas. Our fam has been lucky when it comes to hurricanes in the past so I'm always optimistic about this kind of stuff.
