The day before evacuation
Before we left due to Gustav we took some pictures (on Saturday of last week). This was while Mame was in town visiting, so we were trying to do some touristy things. Sadly, we gave up about midday to return to the house to make final hurricane preparations.
We took Mame to the french quarter for breakfast on Saturday, while we were there we saw some advance National Guard troops getting coffee.
Mame also enjoyed the coffee and the beignets available from Cafe du Monde. The rest of the French quarter was really deserted though, since everyone had already begun to evacuate. (Even the Mules were absent from Jackson square.)
later that day we worked on boarding up the house.
