I'm back in the New Orleans area -- one of the fortunate few with electricity -- but the cell towers are still down. The most reliable way to contact me for the next few days is probably via email.
Thanks for all the good wishes. Please note that in all the media coverage of "dodging the bullet" that tens of thousands of people living near the coast of Louisiana did no such thing; they lost much, are not sure when they can come home, and (I'm sure) don't appreciate the national media portraying this as a close call.
I'm still contributing to the Blog of New Orleans, so check there for locally specific stuff as well as some fine and funny writing by other people.
