It feels weird to be blogging from the comfort of our house, while hundreds of thousands of people have suddenly been displaced from theirs. It's always felt a little weird to be enlarging our house, while knowing that millions live in substandard housing world wide.
I strongly encourage you to donate to the Red Cross (their website is currently busy, which is an encouraging sign) or other organized charity that is working on relief efforts. If you work at a company that's doing matching funding, donate through them to make your dollars go further.
And pray. The folks in Louisiana and Mississippi need all the help they can get.
