News on New Orleans



Really, the news over the last few days has been overwhelming. We’ve had some effects here in North Carolina with stations running out of gas rumours of all the stations closing at 6PM and prices climbing by the hour. (Mostly yesterday, but there are still lines at some gas stations.) We will likely return to normal within a matter of days or a week, those that were directly affected will not see normal lives for months, perhaps years. There are a number of ways to help. Hearts With Hands is a Western North Carolina organization that does very good work. They accept donations of money (which most organizations are preferring here) as well as physical needs (blankets, baby wipes, non-perishable food, etc.) Of course, there is also the Red Cross.
