I just got off the phone with a colleague of mine who was asking where he could get a part in a town where most everything is closed. So I gave him directions:
You go down until you see the brown truck flipped on its side. About a block past there you’ll see the sign for the business… but they are closed. Go to the end of the block and in the empty lot, you’ll see the trailer they are working out of. Pull into the lot and roll down your window. If the generator is running there is someone inside. If not, you’ll have to call them. But they still don’t have phones, so I’ll give you the owner’s cell phone number….
Trying to run a business with no employees, no building, no electricity and no phones. Welcome to New Orleans, 6 months after Katrina.
