Tough Calls

Just spoke to a friend whose mom lives in New Orleans.

“Tell her to leave today,” I said.

The storm won’t be there until Monday, but I’m worried. Access to New Orleans is very limited. Roads will jam.

He said she’s planning on going to a shelter. I told him she should go north, out of the New Orleans area. The state will have shelters north.

I also told him my forecast might be wrong. It’s two days away. Look how poorly this storm was forecast Friday!

Making calls like this are neither fun nor easy. I no more want to tell him his mother is in harm’s way than he wants to hear it. But how can I not?
