Despite the thunderstorms and tornados associated with Tropical Storm Fay and the mandatory evacuation of New Orleans due to Gustav, my speaking tour was a success. Only had to cancel in Montgomery due to tornados.
My original plan was to spend a 3 day weekend down in New Orleans, then drive back to Nashville to fly back to SEA on Monday. (A one-way rental car to fly out of GPT or MSY (n.o.) was over the top expensive. Talk about a blessing in disguise.) But instead of being out on the beach, I found myself driving north with tens of thousands of my new closest friends on the Interstate to catch my flight out of Nashville.
Anyways, I’m back in the office now. Thanks to everyone on Twitter for keeping me company. And yes, everyone in the family back home who didn’t evacuate are safe and sound.
I’ll put together a blog post of the trip w/ photos once i’ve had a chance to handle the 1400 emails in my inbox and catch up on some sleep.
