holy shit, im one of those idiots who stayed behind when everyone left town, but the hurricane didnt exactly hit my town worth a damn, but i did get to see a tree fall down in my back yard and go in my swimming pool.my town was 130 miles from the eye but we did have 50 mph winds. oh well at least i didnt lose power. sucks for new orleans tho... i had family there and i havent been able to contact them and see if they made it out alive. communication is rather scarce down here no phone and cell phone towers fell down. damn place is like 10 foot under water.
