To get a sense of what it feels like to be hit with hurricanes over and over, you must read Bayou Woman's blog. Before the hurricanes, I was a regular reader, fascinated by the lifestyle of this woman. She has her Captain's license, is the mother of 4 (or is it 5) children, is a passionate advocate for the coastal wetlands, and goes fishing and messes about with 'gators (with a camera anyway).
Bayou Woman's photography of the bayou she loves is stunning; her pictures of the aftermath of Ike are heartbreaking. If you do nothing else this weekend, take a minute to go to her blog and offer a few words of encouragement to this brave heart.
