Hopeful Feeling

Hello Algiers!

I've heard from so very many travelers today. Seems like people are starting to arrive at their destinations. I'm so glad you're checking in.

Live video on my tv is showing a great deal of activity, now, in the city. I'm sure you're all watching. Troops are arriving, and more are on their way. Some folks in New Hampshire let me know that New England's support effort will be staging in Alexandria.

I talked to the Point a little bit ago; they were worried about the thick, billowing black smoke and circling helicopters. I told them I think that's probably the ship I've heard is burning on the river. That was the only thing going on, right then, that was worrisome! What a nice change for them.

I feel more hopeful now. I really would like to get back to where we started with this thing - focusing on good news and trying to help!

It's really been a long week, don't ya think?

    Just spoke to Gregg and told him that the smoke that you see from across the river is the Subway next to Mother's Restaurant. The fire did spread to a few neighboring buildings, but from what I see on Fox News is being put out. Will keep you posted from our hotel in Houston.

    Stay Safe!

    Please- let these victims know that help is on the way from many states! Let them know that it is coming, they need to hang in there and not do anything dire, while assuming they have been forgotten. :( They have NOT been forgotten by their fellow countrymen in other states!

    Please, let them know! At least from new england, help is on the way!

    The Subway fire on Tchoupitoulas near the W Hotel was NOT put out. There is no water pressure for them to use to do this. In fact the fire consumed the Subway bldg up to the roof and then caught the adjacent building on fire as well. No word yet if that ever stopped.

    Also, there was a warehouse on fire. The news kept saying it was in Algiers, but when they zoomed in on the building, there was a 947- phone number on the wall, which is a Bywater extension. I think the curves in the river messed up their orientation. Then again, one reporter said that Metairie was on the Westbank!
