I feel like a quitter.
After four humid nights without power, sitting with a candle and a battery-powered AM radio making coffee every morning on my Chargriller, I finally cashed it in and headed to my in-law's house in Memphis. Hot showers and Internet. Hooray.
Folks, Baton Rouge is a mess. Trees and power lines down everywhere. Peopel are actually going to New Orleans to get away from the mess in Baton Rouge. The radio announcer said people were waiting 3-4 hours for gasoline.
I'm going to rest here a few days then head back. I hope to God the power is back on by the time I return. They say it might be up to four weeks for some people to get back the juice.
