Well, tomorrow is the big day. With the passage of Rita, the military is allowing its evacuated personnel to begin trickling back to New Orleans. I've been gone from the city since almost a week before the storm and am now re-assigned with several of our units to NAS Atlanta. Tomorrow morning, I've been authorized to begin a three day return to NOLA to recover what personal property I can. Word from down there has been pretty dire, with a very high percentage of the quarters suffering devastating wind, water, and subsequent mold damage. So, what's the real prize I'll be looking for??? Yup, that's right, the 75 or so quarts of GC I had stashed in a closet in my room. You think I'm driving 500 miles, one way, for a bunch of underwear and socks??? No way, I'm on a quest for the Green (sure, it would be nice to recover my computer stuff, Bowflex, uniforms, and such too, but hey, priorities!). Well, I'll be on the road when the sun comes up. I'll be signing off now, but I'll report back to all you GC faithful on the fate of the stash. I hope the news is good as the loss of 75 qts of GC all at one time might throw the world economy into chaos. Wish me well.
