Greetings from Crowley 

This is from another former Sun Herald staffer: Hello, Sun Herald family...I'm in Crowley, La., at a hotel with a ton of New Orleanians and their pets - La Quinta means "we don't mind the dogs" in Spanish (big smile). Had to leave on Saturday for a close relative's funeral on Sunday. I'm here with my parents, who recently bought a home in Pass Christian. I'm wondering how things are there in the Pass. The news here is good, but focused mostly on New Orleans. Also please post whatever information you can get about how Wiggins is faring in the storm. Please stay safe and know that you are in my prayers. Don't eat too much junk food while you're holed up there at the office. Much love, Jessica Potts
