Natural Disaster Heading to Midwest
For those who live in or are heading to the Chicago area, I must tell you to be prepared. Natural disasters tend to follow me. Looks like snow is predicted for Monday and Tuesday of next week. Just wanted to let you know. Stock up on supplies now.
I grew up in Metairie, LA and lived in actual New Orleans for 12 years. The day that I turned 30, I moved to New Jersey and then to Easton, PA 4 years ago. As luck would have it, I was in New Orleans when Katrina approached and evacuated to Jackson, MS. Other than that, I am a Latin and history teacher at a small, independent school in NJ. I miss New Orleans a lot, think about it all the time, and try to go there whenever the work schedule allows.
