Hurricane Katrina and the Audobon Zoo

My stat counter tells me a lot of people are worried about the zoo in New Orleans. I have no news on that but as soon as I do, I'll post something. I do know that the zoo and Audobon Park are near the Garden District which is one of the areas that, as of tonight, hasn't flooded.

You probably already have this link if you're concerned about the zoo and the aquarium but here it is anyway.

My wife and I paid our first visit to New Orleans for the first time 10 weeks ago and visited the zoo and aquarium, so I appreciate the fact that you posted the link. Thank you.

Laurie, I heard late yesterday (Tuesday evening) that most of Uptown was in pretty good shape. Loyola's campus (directly across St. Charles Ave. from Audobon park)did not sustain any damage and, according to the Jesuit U website, was dry as of yesterday. I cannot take my eyes from it. It is all so very, very sad.

Just know that I keep thinking of you. I also keep sending reader here to "meet" you. :)

This is just too much to comprehend. Thanks for the links.

Laurie said...

Mestradamus - You're welcome.

Sophmom - My favorite parts of the city seem to have fared pretty well but I'm horribly sad for the city.

Me Strauss - Bring 'em on!

Patsy - You are also welcome.
