Farewell Isidore

Now that the storm has passed, you have a tale to tell your children and grandchildren. A direct hit on New Orleans, even by an almost-hurricane, is a relatively rare event. The forecast calls for a beautiful weekend in the Big Easy, with fall-like conditions - low humidity and moderate temperatures. Major attractions will quickly reopen, and the French Quarter will be as clean as it ever gets. We will leave the weather links below for your convenience in case you have to travel to the northeast, where the storm continues to cause some problems. Thank you for your patience.
