Hurricane Katrina Refugee Report #4-Water Everywhere

Wishful thinking doesn't make it so. My house is in the flooded part of the city. How deep? Who knows. My mind is flooded, too.

Too much on my mind right now. Lots I want to write, but no energy to write it. I'm so tired, but I can't turn the television off. I'm so tired.

Latest news... we're going to Charlottesville, Virginia. Technically, Keswick. Good schools, good friends. I'll give more details when I have the energy.

Again, my deepest thanks for all the love and support (of all kinds) coming from you all. I cannot overstate our gratitude. I simply cannot. I am so moved. Beyond words. But (predictably) the words will come anyway, at some point.

I love you all.

Lisa, please tell me when you hear from Renard. I'm incredibly relieved that things are moving in a better direction. And again, almost the only thing I can think to say--hang in there. Also repeating an earlier request, give Rachel and Alex a hug from me.

Brandy, I was finally able to reach Renard by telephone. He is in Houston at his sister's apartment with 11 other people. He may go to his brother's house in Denver.

We just arrived in Charlottesville a few hours ago. More on this shortly. They only have dial-up here and I will have to wait until the late hours to post, so that I don't tie up the line, so I'm signing off for now.
More soon...
