i'm in nashville. it took forever to get here. decided to leave this morning. i thought it would get weaker but it only got stronger. go figure. my stubborn dad stayed, so i hope hope hope he'll be ok and call his police friends if he needs anything. looks like it might leave storms coming here and in alabama so i don't know when i can go home and how much of a home i'll have left. thanks to everyone who text messaged or called me. new orleans still rules. nashville blows. and i'm also on someone else's network connection. weird.
