I am asking for some prayers for my friends still in Slidell who may be having to deal with an incoming hurricane by tomorrow night. My beloved former next-door neighbors have decided not to evacuate for various reasons, most of which I agree with. But I am very concerned about them in the aftermath. We were lucky not to get flooding on our street during Katrina, but it was only right down the street where it did. The slightest change in variables could flood where it didn't before.
It's hard to believe it's been almost 3 years to the day since Hurricane Katrina. Some things in my old hometown will never be the same since then.
Anyway, I hope I am worrying for nothing. I probably am. But just in case, I am sending up a few prayers for everyone there. Please help me out.
