Well, Fuck me. I never ever thought I would be writing in this pussy topic but here I am. this is so not me but I am seriously beginning to freak out.
So we have this little thing called Hurricane Gustav that is making its way into the gulf as we speak. (or as I type, w/e) Its really starting to freak me out. This bitch seems to be pretty bad ass and if it stays on the intended path, that b/w has not fucking changed any in like 2 days) my house will be completely under fucking water and its scaring the shit of me.
I thankfully, through the grace of God,was spared from any flooding from Katrina. I only had wind damage but most of all, I still had my home and my all shit. So many of my friends and family lost COMPLETELY EVERYTHING! It was heartbreaking to watch them go through what they did and help them rummage through the mess that was left. If they were lucky enough to have anything left. But this time, its coming for me and its just so sereal. Even after seeing what my friends and family went through, I still cant completely comprehend this happening to me. I dont want to know what its like to lose everything.
And I feel like Im just walking around in a daze. Ive done this before. I know the drill, I know to take pics of everything, video, grab pics personal stuff you dont want to lose but how do you really chose what stays and what you can stand to lose? When it really comes down to it, I cant fucking pack anything! I feel like all day today Ive just been pacing around in my house, just looking at shit. We are supposed to leave early Sunday morning and all I have packed is some pics and stuff for my dog. I just cant bring myself to do it. I just dont want to deal with it.
And my fucking husband...that bastard! I feel like I am all alone in dealing with this today. He left this morning to go watch the fucking LSU game at his cousins house. I am a huge tiger fan but seriously, how can you watch a fucking football game for 3.50 hours right now, fucking seriously! Then he's been gone helping friends board up their houses. Which, ok, thats fine but fuck, he needs to be here with me helping ME! We need to take care of our shit first and foremost.
My location is on the Westbank in Jefferson Parish. We are under Mandatory Evacuation right now. We have Barataria Bay and the Intercoastal Canal right behind us and a swamp right next to us. (swamp not literally right next to us but I am totally stupid when it comes to distance. so i guess its like about 1 mile to my right)
Anyway, this bitch stays the way its projected and I end up right on the east side of this storm and I am completley FUCKED! All that water is pushed up right into my sweet little home.
And, I know this is the Sanctuary and you arent supposed to troll this board to begin with but just in case you want to make some smartass comment about my situation, please dont. Im sure alot of the country have certain opinions about New Orleans but we are all not like that. I am not like that. Not what you seen on the TV when it was happening. So please keep that shit to yourself for right now. Seriously cant deal with that right now.
And I am NOT, by any means looking for sympathy. I know exactly where I live and it just comes with my location. This is fine its just that this time its different. This time, without a doubt, Im losing my shit and its really scary.
