Hurricane Katrina Comes Closer to Home

CBC News: Canadian warships to sail to Louisiana

Hurricane Katrina is getting closer to home. We just found out this evening that my father in law is being deployed to Louisiana. He’s a military engineer and will be leading a group of engineers likely in rebuilding efforts.

He’s looking forward to it but I don’t think he’s going to enjoy the way he’s travelling. Apparently he’s being transported on the HCMS Toronto – not something he’s looking forward to. He joined the army and not the navy for some good reasons. ;)

I’ll see if I can keep track of what he’s up to over the next month or so. Both he and my mother in law were planning to come visit us in a couple weeks. Guess that’s on hold now. ;) It’s for a good reason though.
