Isaac Makes Landfall...We are fine!

Good Morning, y'all.

J & I are currently staying at the Maison Dupuy in the historic French Quarter. The restaurant and bar are open for business.

J is busily working at the moment making certain that everything digital is A-OK with WWL-TV's website.  J is Director of Digital Media at WWL-TV, Louisiana's News Leader. He has been constantly fielding calls, putting out "fires", and making certain that the content side of the site is bringing you, the masses, the most up-to-date information through words and video.
WWL-TV's website streams live video bringing the most up-to-date coverage to all. Even without cable, the live streams are working great on computers and on mobile devices. What did we all do without all of this technology?

We are staying here another day and night. We have A/C. We have electricity. We have ample food and drink.

Keep all Southern Louisianians in your thoughts and in your prayers. Isaac is moving so slowly, so we still have a long time to go. The wind is crazy violent.

I am having my coffee tawk though I'd rather have my coffee in my oyster shell coffee mug on my sofa.

I hate to see pictures like this from an area south of New Orleans.
