Mississippi Katrina Update

It's a sunny, warm day here in Jackson, MS. The power is still out in most residential areas. Some gas stations are open, but lines are an hour long and it's cash only. ATM machines are down but most banks are reportedly open. My wife is planning to walk to AmSouth bank later on today to get money. I hope power comes back soon, I am running out of things to wear. Large fallen trees still block most of the streets that lead to my house.
The situation is much worse in southern Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama as described in this report. Good luck to those of you living on the Gulfcoast.
