Want to follow the storm, better than you can on CNN, which from Twitter accounts, is doing a "good job?" Go to Twitter.com. Do a search for New Orleans, follow several people who have posted recently, sit back and get the inside story. Lots of human drama and emotion. Most effective way I've ever seen people communicate. Ever.
Seriously, anything that can be done to help, please let us know. @daddyclaxton
My wife and I drove past the intake center in Mesquite, TX this morning and they looked very prepared to assist anyone coming into the Dallas area. If you're traveling, this is a great place to stop. And stay if you must.
Looks like the diminished eye will pass near Dallas to the east as time goes by and the storm becomes a tropical depression. We need the rain. Sure hate seeing NOLA et al getting hit by this.
If you have stories about how you're coping with this as a mom or a dad, please share them. And let us know how to help you.
