Boarding Up for Ida at Annunciation and Harmony

Boarding Up for Ida at Annunciation and HarmonyI spent my day nursing my somewhat sickly self at home and finishing up a ridiculous amount of grading. By the time the Saints had won and the sun was down, I needed to get out of the house, just for a little bit. I took Rhoda and went out for pizza and finished up the few straggling midterms. I rode around for a little while afterwards, that kind of ride where you aren’t headed anywhere or thinking about anything, just pushing the pedals and making a breeze. Hurricane Ida is in the Gulf, and though it doesn’t look like it will come all that close to New Orleans, it still rightly makes everybody a little nervous. I stopped and took a picture of this house on the corner of Annunciation and Harmony. The windows are already all neatly boarded up, with boards numbered for each window. These folks are prepared. I’m expecting a windy day tomorrow and Tuesday, and surely rain, but I’m grateful this first hurricane to threaten the east coast this season looks like it will spare most of us. I wish I could say the same for Nicaragua and El Salvador. I don’t blame these people for boarding up just in case, though. This place doesn’t exactly have a good track record for surviving the glancing blow, but I think we’re going to be ok. But I don’t know yet if I’m going to be biking through the winds.
