Just another quick update, I don’t want anyone to think that I’m posting to make anyone worried. We’re in a place that doesn’t flood too much, and in a house that as been through its share of hurricanes. Just wanted you guys to know what was going on down here! Now excuse me while I sit on my porch and wave my fist at the stupid thing! (after some sleep, obviously)
Soo, where have I been? That lost post was supposed to jump start a bunch of posts and videos, but I ended up getting sick a week or so ago. I’m feeling better, but my ears are all stuffed up, and I’m really getting mad that I can’t record a video until I can hear and talk right again.
Just when I start to feel better, there’s a stupid hurricane headed my way. Trying to evacuate last time was way more of a pain than it was worth (though playing four player Castle Crashers on a generator is always fun), so we’re just going to be lazy and sit back and hope that the levees actually work this time.
I’ll try to post an update sometime later. Maybe now I’ll have time to write that blog post that I’ve been meaning to, heh.
[Wed 3:00 am]: Well, power’s still on, but Isaac should be hitting full force tomorrow, so we’ll see how long that lasts. Rain isn’t too bad but the wind is picking up. Looks like it shouldn’t be too bad (famous last words…). Should be right over us in about 10 hours, so we’ll see how that goes.
Got every single portable game system we could find powered up to brave the storm!
[Wed 6:00 pm]: Very good news, power didn’t go out! Looks like there’s some outages nearby, but things seem to be fine over here. I’m seeing some other places in Louisiana didn’t fair as well, though.
I read over the last hurricane post I made almost exactly 4 years ago (it’s been that long??), and I forgot how scared I was then. Not really about the damage, but since it was only a few years after Katrina, I didn’t think the economy could take another pounding. Guess we’re all, though.
Now if only I could find some more game developers around here…
