Bateman, will you come over and spoon?
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 7:58 pm
Rocks Off will remain open regardless of how hard hurricane Katrina smashes into Mexico...
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 8:51 pm
wow i haven't even been paying attention. well if anyone wants to use this as an excuse to come visit me...come on. just stay outta steph's way when she's studying.

call me
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 9:04 pm
could be a bad one.

word on the street is matty will not be making it to town to DJ tonight at the circle bar.

sam & katherine are on the way to memphis.

we are staying put, maybe we will slink off late sunday night if it's looking dire, but probably not. we might also ride it out in peggy & dan's place, it's got 2 floors and might be above sea level. probably not though.

I've got a cordless circular saw if we need to cut an escape hole in the roof. saw = life.

if y'all don't know what we're talking about, look at this picture

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/storm_graphics/AT12/refresh/AL1205W+gif/144929 W_sm.gif

if that holds true, it gonna get nas-tay up in heauh.
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 9:06 pm
also look for gas to go up another fifty cents a gallon as that path would destroy one of the biggest oil terminals in the gulf, port fourchon.
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 9:08 pm
At least you got to see Wheel of Fortune. Be proud of that.
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 9:20 pm
I hope they're getting Pat Sajak to higher ground.
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 9:22 pm
I know this is a different thread, but, I'm mad as hell they didn't let y'all yell "Wheel of Fortune". What a gip.

Anyway, y'all be carefull down there. How are the pumps in NOLA? It's slightly under sea level anyway, isn't it?
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 9:24 pm
the pumps can handle most major flooding from rainfall, but if the levees get topped out, all bets are off, the pumps will be completely submerged.

on that note, I'm cracking my first beer of the day.... now.
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 9:26 pm
If I send a case floating down the river now, you should get 'em by Tuesday.

Be careful y'all--remember what Hurricane Camille pulled way back in '69. Has a hurricane ever directly hit NOLA?
Posted: Aug 27, 2005 10:59 pm
Betsy kinda did the same thing in '65.......came from atlantic, hit the keys though.....headed straight for NOLA....hit west of the mouth at Grand Isle...

Pat Robertson will blame the hurricane on "Weed and Hennesey" and those who tolerate the No Limit lifestyle.

Take all your Shit Dogs records and your pets to safety!

fuck it.
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 12:29 am
i just took a walk down to the tchoup-stop and saw Lord George who was buying a sandwich. he said he's heading up to memphis too. so, if you see a big haired heavy metal hobgoblin- that's The Lord. Death to false Metal!

he said he can't wait to check out some tex-mex chain up there where you can throw your peanuts on the floor. i explained that we have something similar here, but he wasn't listening. this is just a crazy day for everyone in new orleans.

the super wal-mart even closed down at 4pm. that's pretty serious! i have a story that goes along with this, but i'll save it so i have something to say when i get to memphis.
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 12:32 am
good luck beating the storm out of town. pictures of NOLA folks boarding up their windows are above the fold in the NYTimes online. yer big news. be safe
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 12:41 am
Yeah, y'all holler if/when you make it up to Memphis.

Sam, if you read this, my cell phone is working much better now.
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 1:02 am
super wal-mart is closed? damn that is serious. I still need to fill my prescription for 1.75L of early times. hope my local merchants are still operating. I also need to get a wallet-full of what our mayor calls "the benjamins."
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 3:27 am
WR, I'm ready to go Monday about 2 a.m., I wonder if he has an R.U.R single?

Posted: Aug 28, 2005 4:32 am
Stranded in New Orleans cos' my car ain't got no brakes. Luckily, I got a bottle of whiskey, carton of smokes an' plenty of ammo for my pellet gun to shoot all the snakes that flow over from the bayou. I'll see you fuck-o's at Goner Fest in my snakeskin hoodie.
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 5:41 am
the best part about the cane is the aftermath, when the flood waters come up throw firecrackers into da water and scoop up dem crawdaddy's when they berl up to da top...firecrackers are chinese, right???!!! let's call it it even. no way fukkerrrsss!!!
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 9:03 am
-remember what Hurricane Camille pulled way back in '69

Well..I just want ya'll to know that my momma almost named me 'Camille' as a result of that storm...she was holed-up inna public bathroom really preggers during it...apparently while my (fucking-asshole) dad was....
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 9:04 am
p.s. thank goodness she didn't
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 11:03 am
Okay we are officially throwing in the towel at this point, anyone in the Jackson, MS caravan (or in Jackson, MS) please call me when you read this. 504-669-4632. We're going to leave around 7:00 am hopefully.

Posted: Aug 28, 2005 11:04 am
and no dis to you Chad, I actually would love to come stay with you and steph but you guys are going to be in the thick of that storm too and we might get rained out up there for days. better to stay close to home.
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 11:06 am
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 3:53 pm
YEEEHAW, there's a storm a comin'!!
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 4:27 pm
That Katrina looks INSANE. Who's headed to the Superdome? Seriously, be careful!
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 4:41 pm
People are hiding out in the Superdome. Mayor said to bring food for 3-5 days. No mention of how many gallons of vodka you should bring.

And my wife said that tornados fuck shit up on the outer rim of the hurricane. Hope you goners are ok.
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 4:58 pm
seems like a good time to raid that record collection, batemen!
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 6:00 pm
man...I just turned on the glow-box to see about all this....damn...they're calling it a 'nightmare scenario'???

I wish the best for all of you sweethearts.
And your record collections too...

Brings up a good point; Goner is closed on Mondays, right? But there should be something going on somewhere for the NOLA folks. Can we put something together?
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 7:33 pm
Also, thinking about this: they're saying this is huge with possibilities of severe flooding in NOLA. The huricane is making a path up the delta and flood plains north. It's all dumping back into the Mississippi, and coming back down through New Orleans. Hmmm...
Posted: Aug 28, 2005 7:38 pm
Monday party at the Buccaneer? Pre-show at Goner?

Stay tuned!

I thought about that too and then I felt really shitty for it.....damn you Katrina for being so 'organized'!

panzer and blythe.... get the fuck out and get yer asses up here.

art....come on up and bring all yer lovely young female entourage.

I was thinking, oh it's just another hurricane until I read this:

A statement from the National Weather Service in Slidell, near New Orleans, Louisiana, warned that much of the affected area "will be uninhabitable for weeks, perhaps longer."

Low-rise, wood-frame buildings will be destroyed, and concrete apartment buildings "will sustain major damage," it said.

"High-rise office and apartment buildings will sway dangerously, a few to the point of total collapse," the warning read.

"All windows will blow out. Airborne debris will be widespread, and may include heavy items such as household appliances and even light vehicles."
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 2:05 am
So Jackson wasnt good enough for you gaytards??? We were gonna have a hurricane part for you goons tonight & shit.

More beer for me.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 2:07 am
we will rescue everyone with the GONER HELICOPTER!

just send out the SOS and we're there!

no joking, hope everyone who stayed is all right. l
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 2:26 am
Have some friends from NOLA who just happened to be up here for a wedding this weekend. I asked them today when they were planning on going back and they said, "Really...it'll be months before we can go back." Said officials were talking weeks and weeks to even get the water level down to where New Orleans will be habitable again.
Also said to fill up your car with gas tonight. They're expecting the oil rigs to go, with gas prices taking another big upswing.

Y'all all take good care.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 2:56 am
Someone aksed me, and i din't know...

what do they do with folks in the hospitals?
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 3:08 am
This might be helpful
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 3:51 am
We care about our brothas and sistahs in NOLA. We just want you to be safe and to be able to return there after it's over. OK?

I hope you're all out of there by now.

Talk to you on the other side of the weather...
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:10 am | Edited by: Jack Stands
Hope y'all get this while the power is still on. Y'all stay safe down there. If you made it up to Memphis, holler. Should be able to find something to do on a Monday night.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:22 am
I just saw a photo in the NYTimes online with a caption that "three Atlantic bottlenose dolphins were evacuated from the Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport, Miss. to a hotel pool." Hope the city and state take as good care of humans as they do dolphins.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:27 am
NOLA Goners, PLEASE do tell us when you're safely away from Katrina....okay? Who are ALL of 'em?

Martel (Womb Raider)
King Louie
Matt Pendleton

I guess this thread brought up a few..

Art Boonparn

Man. It gives me the shivers thinking about what it's gonna be like tomorrow and the weeks to come....all that swamp land and all those critters agitated.....man.....that historic city...all those people holed-up in that facility probably not being able to leave for days....people stuck on the highways even now.....what you may come home to....unimaginable.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:34 am
Bateman, and martel are in memphis. I'm in oxford mississippi. King Louie and art boonparn I think are trying to ride it out. Peg was gonna ride it out but isn't answering her phone so I think she got a ride out of town with chilton.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:37 am
Ridin' the Storm OUT!

REO will pull ya'll through!
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:04 am
Thanks Matt.
I wished someone wouldda been able to drag Louie away, that's a bummer, but somehow, I'm not surprised. I hope he got himself a case of potted-meat.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:19 am
i wonder whats going to happen with all of those cemetarys, floating coffins?, this whole thing has a creepy DOOMSDAY feeling , lots of buildings will collapse, poeple are going to die
larry king said this will be the biggest baddest meanest storm ever hitting modern day america

does anyone know why the hurricane is red on some stations and green on others.?
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 6:08 am
we will rescue everyone with the GONER HELICOPTER!

didn't the shark get that one, or did the Dutch Masters guys get away?

I'm in Houston....on my way to San Antonio to find my stolen bike in the basement of the Alamo....

If NOLA is destroyed look for me in San Francisco or Chicago...unless they are hiring burned out bartenders at Goner.....

Hang in there my Mobile peeps too.

Posted: Aug 29, 2005 3:23 pm
hangin at andria's in memphis.... we were in good spirits until about an hour ago, then the room fell silent. levees are breaking on the industrial canal, reports of people trapped in attics in the 9th wd and eastern nola, reports of river levees breaking now.... city is FUUUUCKED. don't even know if it's going to be worth going back to pick up the pieces, if anything's left at all.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 3:25 pm
bateman, i'll be looking for you in memphis! You can't escape the wrath of the two tomatoes!

Posted: Aug 29, 2005 3:45 pm
NOLA under Tornado watch until Noon today as well, DOUBLE WHAMMY perhaps (just heard about it on the weather channel)
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:13 pm
Levee has been breached.....


This is where my daughter lives......crap.
She's here in Memphis thank god
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:35 pm
my earlier post was a tad dramatic... watching fox news will do that to you. switched to cnn now i'm starting to feel better about the prospects of our house still being there when we get back. in some capacity at least.

me and the old lady have hundreds and hundreds of 45s with no sleeves just sitting in the living room, I imagine those all took off like frisbees if our windows blew out, so there's probably shards of vinyl sticking in the walls and shit, should be a funny sight.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:36 pm
and that levee breach is the exact same thing that happened in hurricane betsy 40 years ago, you'd think they'd have prevented it from happening again, those fuckers. fats domino's house is a goner!!!
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:43 pm
Mr Quintron get out? I know his bar is a ship but i'd imagine that's all under water now...

Martel! The Visibile Man lp... noooooooooo!
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:49 pm | Edited by: Womb Raider
oh by the way, that flooding is limited to the LOWER 9th ward, which is the area east of the industrial canal... UPPER 9th ward is still okay, which is where quintron lives (and probably your daughter as well, Golightly)

hope Q got out okay though. nola.com reports "Uptown New Orleans has been hit with extensive wind damage in the Napoleon Avenue area." which is where Jason & Blythe are holed up, hope they're doing okay.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 4:53 pm
I saw a really bad flooded street photo from Uptown in today's online NY Times.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:20 pm
I'm hopin' Panzer, blythe, and King Louie are all right. they are a tough breed so I think they will make it through the flood! were are Peggy, dan , and alex ? cell phones don't seem to be workin'.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:35 pm
peggy and dan made it to memphis a couple of hours ago, they left new orleans at midnight last night!!!! i'll spare the details but alex gave them his car keys and stayed, boarded up in treme.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:37 pm
We made it to memphis, left at midnight, alex would not come with us but gave us his car. Matt? Where are you? we're at Dimitrie's. I am worried about jason, blythe, jessica, manny, alex, it's worse than being there..
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:42 pm
p.s. Jason told me yesterday that louis evacuated a while back
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:45 pm
well that's good news, but Jason and Blythe and Panzer shouldda left...

Can someone direct me to streaming live news coverage outta NOLA...I use real player (free version)...I keep diggin and I'm getting nothing...NOLA.com only has clips.....or direct me to somethin else??
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:48 pm

We'll calls when we can.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 6:05 pm
i was listenign to npr this a.m. and an 'expert' was saying how the storm is whipping up all sorts of shit and dumping it in the streets. things like alligators, snakes and toxic waste. when it's all over it's going to be man vs. mutated beast locked in a desperate battle set in a post-apocalyptic world.
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 6:09 pm
I am officially sick of hearing about Hurricane Katrina. I like your vision of post-storm N'Awlins, arman... we should film THAT...
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 6:13 pm
I've had the Weather Channel on since my brunch guests left yesterday.

Sherry --- weather.com has streaming clips too, but I don't have their player on my computer. The TV component of the Weather CHannel has their hosts saying things like "there's very little data coming from N.O." as if the idiots watching can't figure out w/ that powerful storm, surely all the things you need to transmit data and images are kinda fucked up

glad to hear folks got out. Weather Channel and various newspapers reported that the Superdome roof got peeled off in two sections..
Posted: Aug 29, 2005 6:19 pm
I'm in oxford Miss. we'll try to call ya. we are thinkin of comin' up there today or maybe tomarrow? I wonder when it'll be o.k. to go to new orleans. probably not tomarrow. huh?

Posted: Aug 29, 2005 8:27 pm
Don't know if you found it on that site, but most time hospitals move who they can. Those they can't wait it out. The hospitals, news stations, etc have huge systems with back up UPS/generator/battery units that will give them power. More than likely it will only support what is necessary, so the nurses will be walking down the halls with flash lights.

Posted: Aug 29, 2005 8:36 pm
Living in Florida as I do, I must say the worst part of this (other than death/your home being destroyed) must be for the people who have to gather in masses at that football stadium. I had to spend the night in a high school gym during one of our hurricanes, I was surrounded by crazy crack heads who were talking to themselves, and psychotic bums who smelled like they just shit their pants. People were more worried about somebody robbing or attacking them than they were about the hurricane. I imagine the N.O. stadium situation is that multiplied by 1,000.....

My mom's house is pretty close to the beach,i hope it didn't get hit by pine trees(like what happened to our house in 'Goula during Hurricane Frederick) or a storm surge! My other sister works at a Motel 6 on the beach in Biloxi but got moved to a location in Gulfport that's a little further from the fray (but not much). I don't know what happened to my neice,her husband (nephew?) and little Matthew but i have to assume the best--- i haven't heard of any casualties from this storm yet.

Of course it would suck to come back to the Crescent City only to find out the Nutrias have taken over and all the humans have been enslaved! That would be a stone bummer.

rocknrollnurse- hey that's what I called my "nurse" costume for Halloween a couple years ago. I chased everyone around with a giant plastic syringe, then I'd put on some surgical gloves suggestively. It was hot.

Peg - Rob in Toronto, here - relieved to hear you and Dan got out ok. Alex? of course he'd stay...no one tells Alex what to do! George R. is kinda on my mind - I think of him in the Dome with his ma, sharing snacks with street crazies, gesticulating at the roof and just generally being such a pain in the ass that they turf him out...
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 12:00 am
Jason text messaged me, they got through it.. skylight got ripped off the house and roof partially gone.. his apt is.... wet.

saw some pictures on nola.com of magazine st. near cadiz, neighborhood looks pretty trashed but no flooding, hope rocks off is okay, looked like a ton of wind damage around there.

treme is supposed to be one of the badly damaged neighborhoods for some reason, I guess the pumping station couldn't handle it or something. I haven't heard much about my neighborhood. I assume there was some flooding, not sure how much. A levee on the 17th st canal broke and flooded lakeview, then the water went down robert e. lee and into bayou st. john, which overflowed its banks.

they're saying no electricity for 1-2 months... the city is going to be a total warzone. I should probably buy a gun.

I know what happens at hospitals during a disaster..you don't get to go off duty..that what's not hot about being a rocknroll nurse for real..but my question is..what happens to the zoo animals?...did they get to evacuate?
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 1:02 am
OMG. They just showed the first chopper images on Fox of some 'neighborhood' covered in water as far as you can see in any direction, but didn't say what part of town....

Glad to hear J&B are doing as OK as they can, thanks for sharing, Chris!

But those images are nasty-bad-flooding..almost to the roof-tops...

Yeah, it looks scary as hell. I heard those flooding shots were of Treme and Lower 9th Ward.

We're still moving there. A flooded NOLA still kicks some PDX ass.

just out of curiosity i tried calling sam yesterday, but got the ol' 'all circuits are busy'. hope they're ok.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 3:23 pm
Hey Peg, I am so glad to hear ya'll are ok. We are good hear other than being worried sick. From the pictures I have been looking at Alex's house should be flooded. I hope he went to higher ground that numbskull. I think EVERY neighborhood is flooded except for Canal Street and some Uptown. I have been trying to text J&B to let them know the levee is breached and water has been rising, even into downtown hotels, but I cannot get a signal in "the roost." I want them to keep an eye out for water rising if another levee goes. Could someone try and get that message to them. Do they have a battery-operated radio or tv? Sam- you live in NOLA...why don't you already have a gun?
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 4:00 pm
Sweetheart...if J&B did have a signal at all the there is surely no charge. It appears there's no way to stop the water either or get rid of it...

Is 10 east AND west underwater??
Is what's left of Katrina hitting Memphis area yet?

It's really difficult for me to do anything thinking about this mess!
This is just so sad…someone said it right, it’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

Steph, what area of town is Rocks Off?
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 4:17 pm
I still have a NOLA cell number and the only messages I can get are text. A friend told me she got a text Mess. from Blythe yesterday after the storm. Your prob. right about the charge.

Rocks Off is Uptown, not too far from J&B. I hope Colby got all the records off of the floor!
Colby, any word? I know Rami (Ballzack) is still there and says he saw people looting yesterday, but that Uptown did not look flooded. I am just worried about further breaks.
Jeezus. I have got to stop watching the news and go to school.

What was left came through Memphis last night. Half the city and county schools were closed today with power outages, my stepdad's house has a tree on it, but all in all it wasn't that bad. I think it was worse out in Bartlett.
I was surprised that we had damage at all, as my house is always the first to lose power, and I have it this morning.

Thanks for all the info on the board. I've had people from down that way calling me all morning wanting to know what's going on. I've been able to tell them what's been reported here, and they've been grateful for any little bit of news.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 4:28 pm
So . . . did Louie and Art evacuate??

What about Kirsch? Does anyone talk to him anymore? Where is he?

Anyone know Rich Speigel or Mark Williams? Are they okay?

I'm sure there's other folks I can't think of . . . I'm glad to hear the folks who have checked in are okay whether they rode it out or evacuated. It's only been 10 years since I lived there.

Oh, and I second the person's question about the zoo. I'm wondering if Antoine and the komodo dragon are running loose in the park.

no.....except that the 17th St. Canal broke open 200 feet at the old hammond highway bridge on the orleans parish side.....water from the lake is pouring into the streets...everything is @3 feet high at the least, merch-wise....windows boarded....front door nailed shut from the inside...

I'm on a tour of Texas....Houston 2 days ago...San Antonio yesterday and today....Austin this afternoon maybe.....

Looting begins in New Orleans
8/30/2005, 11:47 a.m. CT
The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS (AP) ? With much of the city emptied by Hurricane Katrina, some opportunists took advantage of the situation by looting stores.

At a Walgreen's drug store in the French Quarter, people were running out with grocery baskets and coolers full of soft drinks, chips and diapers.

When police finally showed up, a young boy stood in the door screaming, "86! 86!" ? the radio code for police ? and the crowd scattered.

Denise Bollinger, a tourist from Philadelphia, stood outside and snapped pictures in amazement.

"It's downtown Baghdad," the housewife said. "It's insane. I've wanted to come here for 10 years. I thought this was a sophisticated city. I guess not."

Around the corner on Canal Street, the main thoroughfare in the central business district, people sloshed headlong through hip-deep water as looters ripped open the steel gates on the front of several clothing and jewelry stores.

One man, who had about 10 pairs of jeans draped over his left arm, was asked if he was salvaging things from his store.

"No," the man shouted, "that's EVERYBODY'S store."

Looters filled industrial-sized garbage cans with clothing and jewelry and floated them down the street on bits of plywood and insulation as National Guard lumbered by.

Mike Franklin stood on the trolley tracks and watched the spectacle unfold.

"To be honest with you, people who are oppressed all their lives, man, it's an opportunity to get back at society," he said.

Looking to donate to any relief efforts, I'm thinking of the Red Cross, but is there a local organization that might be more effective in helping folks?

I'm thinking for NOLA, Biloxi, or wherever in the vicinity, though of course who knows if a local agency could even deal with getting money right now.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 7:12 pm
unless i'm mistaken, martial law gives the national guard the ok to shoot looters. which is fine with me.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 7:15 pm
Red Cross is great and likely the most efficient agency at this stage of things. I am not sure where you live but you can usually contact Red Cross or United Way in your town and ask what agencies are mounting up to provide relief services and what the best way to help would be.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 7:37 pm
Just FYI, Boonparn posted a comment to Louie's Myspace profile Sunday afternoon that indicates they "parted ways" sometime that day. So, it's possible Louie left the city.

I'd say go with Red Cross or United Way for donations. . . I don't know if the local agencies have an HQ right now (the Times-Picayune evacuated their building this morning), and I'm 1500 miles away so that's what I'm gonna do is donate to the Red Cross.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 8:14 pm
my mom's house is probably gone; we dunno for sure til she gets word from her town's mayor.
i know paul's family got out, but the lines are down; hoping their houses are ok.
Congrats, Looters, you just drove what little remains of Nola's economy right out of the city...hope you enjoy the miles-long walk to the last open supermarket in town after this, but hey, you "got back at Society", right? Fucking Morons.
anyone moving up to Chi. after this, lemmie know if i can help out with the move: bgoubler@yahoo.com

Shit, I'm sorry to hear that. I'm glad your family and Paul's are okay.

I guess we won't know anything else for a while, since no one will have electricity and cell phones do need to be recharged.

Same goes with anyone wanting to move to Boston. . . It's fucking expensive but you'd get a warm welcome. We don't have any good crawfish though.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 8:33 pm
To everyone reading, this is Chris Martel.

Every piece of information I have suggests that our house is flooded up to the roof by now, meaning everything Lilli and I have is a goner. So, whatever. Jason just left a message on my voicemail saying he rode a bike up Napolean and the water was waist deep going towards fountainbleau. Mid City and Lakeview are completely submerged.

we're all just sticking it out in memphis. don't really know what else to do at this point. Lilli is probably going to fly to Seattle to hang with her family for a few months, her job in New Orleans is not going to be there. If anyone can score her a bartending gig or something there, lemme know. don't know what else to say at this point, besides FUCK.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 8:45 pm
Damn guys I'm really sorry. Chris/ Sam/ Katherine if you can make it up here (I know we aren't vactioning there now) lemme know. We'd love to have you.

Damn, Chris. That's horrible. St. Jude needed some System and LAN admins, last I checked (if you're gonna be stuck here awhile).
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 8:53 pm
my thoughts are with all of you NOLA folk through all of this. my condolences or whatever you say in a natural disaster. good god.

"It's downtown Baghdad," the housewife said. "It's insane. I've wanted to come here for 10 years. I thought this was a sophisticated city. I guess not."

like any city, when something of this magnitude happens, is gonna stay "sophisticated" and none of it's citizens will possibly break some laws

she should have gone to Branson, Mo instead
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 8:59 pm
Unreal. What are people saying about how long it will take for the water to go down? If this can be any consolation, when I was a kid our house on the Spring River (built in the early 1910's) was completely flooded out when the Spring went all the way up the bluff, past the homes and to the highway. I think it was at least a week before all the water went down, but when we went back, even though the old steel suspension bridge had been washed away, along with several of the "Rio Vista Mansions" (our house was considered a shack)...the little cabin remained. We even salvaged all of our quilts, dishes and most of the old furniture. We even found our canoe. It still is standing today. So don't give up all hope on your New Orleans.

Damn. Fuck. Slide #3 horrified me the most.

Chris -- I'm sorry to hear about your home. I've read your blog, and I'm glad you made the decision to leave. I hope something good (whatever that is) can come out of this for you.

Martel. Talk to Joe Pestilence about the bartending gig or I can give you a few other names later.

We've had people coming into the kennel all day with horror stories.

Can we get a head count? Where's everybody at.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 9:22 pm
This is nuts:

Jeff Parish President. Residents will probably be allowed back in town in a week, with identification only, but only to get essentials and clothing. You will then be asked to leave and not come back for one month.

Where is everyone gonna go?

Okay, I'm gonna stop posting so people can check in and i'm not clogging up the board.

Let Katherine know that I'll mail her & Sam stuff if they need it. My regular size clothes would likely be maternity for her! We aren't doing well right now but we always have extra stuff around if needed.

Lacey in all honesty I don't think anyone knows a reasonable timeline right now. this is really a one of a kind disaster that people have no experience handling, there is no previous precedent for it. and there is so much destruction, not just in new orleans, that resources are going to be spread very thin trying to get things running again. will new orleans recover? yes but it will take YEARS. and I think a month or two is probably a reasonable guess for people going back home.

My sympathies with you all...went through one hurricane last year.

WR is correct on the time frame. The dikes will require barging in fill for repair. Power will likely have to be cabled in temporarily to get the pumps going.

According to nola.com, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin estimated Tuesday it would take as long as two weeks to clear out the floodwaters once the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers fixes the levees.

Pumps do about 2 feet per day when they are all running.

In the meantime, if anyone has thoughts about setting up a relief fund for displaced Goners, count me in.

do they know that the only road out of town is US90 to houma and points west?? getting to alabama will be nearly impossible. I can't fucking believe they're waiting this long. I guess they have no access to the news to find out what's going on around them, but it's FUCKED. I don't even understand how they can get to the pontchartrain expressway with claiborne ave flooded. st charles, magazine, and tchoup might not be passable at all because of downed trees. they might actually be better off staying put at this point. FUCK.

We're all the way up in NJ, but if any of our NOLA pals need a place to stay for awhile, get in touch with me or Jahna.

My heart goes out to you NOLA folks. I've got a bunch non-Goner pals down there, and I can't get in touch with anybody. Several friends are holed up in MT. Herman, but I can't get through to them either.

I'd like to vollunteer to help people dig out and salvage anything not destroyed. I bet if a bunch of people from all over the South helped out, the turnaround time on rebuilding could be cut down from current estimates. There is a lot of love for NOLA & it's people, and I hope we have a chance to show it in a meaningful way. In the meantime, I'm donating $$$ to disaster relief, and I encourage anybody else on here that can afford it to do the same.

You all take care.

Check this ...

Alex Chilton's ex-girlfriend called up here at the CA and says she hasn't heard from him since Monday. I noticed someone said he was leaving. I don't know anything further about this, since I didn't take the call or anything. Don't know "which" ex-gf this is or her name ... any ideas?

I talked to Adele, she said she talked to Jessica and Blythe and told them how to get out. Twin Span gone so they, I think are going to try and make it to the River Bridge and go towards the West Bank and up 90 that way. Adele said she gave them directions. They have my number and Adele's (they are hold up in a bayou fish camp w/ Jay, Skwirl, Suzy, Ian, and maybe some others in Opelousas, LA) Adele also told them they could break into Suzy's parents' house to get supplies. Everyone keep them in your thoughts that they get through ok, water is rising, and I don't think they realized that until today sometime, no t.v. We called back to make sure they were gone and no one answered. I hope to god they left already. Mayor Nagin just said pumps are failing even more and 10-15' of water will be uptown next.

This is all so terrible - first the news was that it wasn't so bad...then things just kept getting worse. Can I send some care packages of cookies to Goner?

I don't know anyone on this board personally, but anyone coming to Portland....

I've got a huge house with plenty of room, and our doors are open.

Best of luck to you all. This is fucked.
