If you’re evacuating from New Orleans, you might want to refresh your memory first


Regular readers will recall that I was part of the post Hurricane Katrina cleanup operation in 2005, in New Orleans and south-eastern Louisiana.  I wrote about it quite extensively at the time, and later pulled all the separate posts together and published them as a single article on this blog.

If you haven’t already read that article, you might want to do so before “bugging out” of New Orleans this time.  Just sayin’ . . .

Good luck to all of you caught in the hurricane’s path.  Stay as safe as you can.


EDITED TO ADD:  Sundance notes:

Additionally, I hate to note this, but Joe Biden is in charge of FEMA… So plan accordingly.




  1. I'll go on a limb and assume the people who need to read those posts are not reading your blog. Some people just never learn

  2. It's like deja vu all over again.

    But seriously those whondont know history are doomed to repair it?

    Maybe they can look at the back of Xiden's head as he flies over in Air Force 1

  3. Ida can be Katrina repeated but since a Democrat is in the White House the Media will report it as the greatest response to a disaster ever just like they're trying to turn Biden's Afghanistan debacle from a sow's ear into a silk purse.

  4. Just got word a moment ago that took 7 hours to get from Thibodeaux to Morgan City today.
    Got a good deep sea diving buddy/ ex diving supervisor in Houma giving me updates.


  5. The Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi coast will get a Cat 4 hurricane about every 20 or so years. Louisiana seems to get more of its share. You couldn't pay me enough to live there.

    Katrina was the breakout event that helped my career. I was a displaced IT project manager working in logistics and support for a small satellite communications company. My company offered our self contained Ku satellite trailer as a way to get communications into the Emergency Operations Centers in the Parishes of the affected areas. The guy leading the project on site bowed out after a week and I stepped up to the plate. I spent the next 2 months directing equipment and technicians to various EOCs while making food and fuel resupply runs to keep our side of it running.
