Cyli, from Why Not Laugh, was down in New Orleans as a FEMA member right after Katrina. She had some great stories about her time there, rescuing people by boat.
apparently, she didn't get enough attention the last time for her efforts, so she is back in the fray for Rita. Currently, she is in Port Arthur, helping to evacuate people from the city and cooking up schemes to get free pizza from Domino's.
If you get a chance, stop by her blog and leave her a note to say your thoughts are with her and thank her for her work.
