It didn't occur to me until just now that my friend Audrey Garza lived in New Orleans. She and her husband moved there this summer and I haven't heard from her since July, so it didn't click until tonight that she was in any danger.
Now, I'm kicking myself, though I'm not sure what difference it makes. Maybe if I had thought of it before the hurricane hit, I would have gotten in touch with her and I would know they were getting out safely. But there is not a whole lot that I could have done to help them from here, and just because I talked to them before the storm wouldn't mean I would know how they are now.
Still, I would like to know they are OK. I'll have to try and get in touch with her mom to find out.
