For the good wishes. The Quarter and most of New Orleans looked like some of it was spared last night but with the breach of the levee, 80% is under water. It will be months, if not longer, before any of the restaurants will be ready for diners. Little by little though, we'll all be back.
P.S. No Amy, I don't have any idea where "your" cats are...I'm still searching for a brother and a brother-in-law that are missing.
