Yesterday and today were spent watching the horrible images from New Orleans and Mississippi, and hearing the terrible accounts of the locals there. Lately I saw some shots of Memphis that looked pretty water-soaked. I hope my fellow Tennesseans are staying safe and (relatively) dry today.
Sometimes I am amazed at the destruction nature can cause. Overnight, one of the grandest cities of the South has been immersed in water. Only time will tell the true cost of the damages. Only time will tell how many people are lost. I hope the numbers stay low, although the 68 deaths they have already reported is 68 too many.
My thoughts are with the victims and those who are in Katrina's path. Another hurricane name retired.
