Linda and I made it out of town and to "safety" in Florida leaving our place yesterday at 3 p.m.. This is the intersection where we took leave of the I-10. To say the traffic was at a crawl, would be an exageration. So we took out bets on a backroad -- heading out Highway 90. It took us 3 hours to get out of New Orleans to the Slidell area.
We finally pulled into our Florida destination ad 12:30 a.m., feeling lucky we left when we did.
More details from on the road later. Let me catch some sleep.
