Hurricane people update!
gwynraven is alive and well! The storm didn't hit Baton Rouge as heavily as anticipated; she's without power and looks to be stuck in her apartment for a few days, but there's "no major damage" and she's in good spirits.
My birthmom's cellphone is giving me a busy signal. Has been all day. So I called my aunt and uncle, the ones I spend $WINTERHOLIDAY with, and my cousin was able to confirm that my birthmom is the hell out of Louisiana; she was planning to go to the beach at Destin, but ended up somewhere else. He doesn't know where. But she's officially not in Slidell. If they hear from her, they'll have her call me.
If anyone hears from scyllacat or zeldakitty, please comment here. Thanks.
Otherwise, nice afternoon out with dark_blade, only mildly tinged with panic on the way home. The child is asleep. All of us are feeling off today.
I have... *presses fingers to eyes* four more phone calls to make? Then I can sit down.
