Must. Stop. Watching. Coverage...

I am just heartsick.

The governor of Mississippi said that 90 percent of the buildings between Hwy. 90 and the railroad tracks in Biloxi, Gulfport, Long Beach (my town) and Pass Christian are destroyed. "Not damaged," he said. "Gone."

Got an email from Shelley this morning. She's in the Netherlands you know. Of course, just as I suspected, her parents stayed. They always do. They weathered Camille in that house. Shelley's worried sick as she hasn't been able to make any contact with them since the storm hit.

I am completely heartbroken.
