35. I personally would have assumed the shelter
had water. Yet I can't say opening the Superdome was a bad thing, because it saved so many lives. I just don't understand why it wasn't stocked.

Your point about the busses is a good one. You really can't carry that much water. However the bus concept says to me they are going out of the danger area where water won't be a problem.

After Katrina our biggest question is whether or not we will EVER leave our house. We are about 25 miles inland from St. Marks. I don't trust public shelters anymore, altho my husband is a ham operator and often works them. I guess if a Cat 5 bears down we head to PA and family. We took a Cat I in '85, Kate, and it was chaos here for two weeks. That was NOTHING.
