FYI... for those interested in analysis of violent tornado mortality rates (in regards to myths such as "if you dont get below ground, you will not survive this tornado") I have written a technical blog post that summarizes some past information in the scientific literature and also adds in some data from the recently-released NIST report on the Joplin, MO, tornado from 2011.

The minute Dr. Eilts started up her own practice, we have been using her as our veterinarian. She started a house call vet service while she waits for her new facility to be constructed. Her prices are more reasonable than what we paid before, and we don't even have to use our own gas to leave the house. She offers discounts for multiple pets in the same visit which is something new to us... there was no way we could get all of them into the car for a 25 minute ride to the vet even if it was offered before! Dr. Eilts tells us that once her new building is finished and she starts up practice there, she is considering continuing the house call service perhaps once a day. Hopefully others will help us convince her to do just that. She's filling a demand that many of us with busy lives have.

Was a unique location for a restaurant as it was inside of a house from the 1880s. Interior still resembled that of a period home. Prices were a little high, but food quality, staff/management friendliness, and the unique atmosphere made it worth the cost. Certainly made for a more enjoyable dinner excursion that your usual chain restaurant, and will try and go back when in Vicksburg again.

The best BBQ in Slidell, hands down. Among the best I have had all over the south, as well. The price is better than that BBQ chain that just came to town, and you get more food.

Overall a really good rate for just needing a good night's sleep and a small breakfast in the morning. Although their website indicates new ownership (within the last 5 years) and major renovations, there still seem to be some areas that need work. The enclosed courtyard/pool area has rough, chipping concrete in places. Floors, carpet, fixtures, decor sometimes appeared worn or otherwise "disheveled." Furniture and appliances in the room were close to brand new. Appreciated the same rate for an interior entry, poolside room instead of the other rooms (most of which were exterior). Also appreciated the minor $10 pet fee. Staff didn't seem to know of a set area for pets to do their business, just pointed to a small grassy area near the road. In the evening, the staff member was only at the desk half of the time and had an overall "meh" personality - not mean, but not overly friendly. Ice machine was out of order; the front desk staff member had to go into the attached bar to get ice. In the morning, the no staff members were at the front desk and it appeared that the only staff around was the guy working in the breakfast room. Hot breakfast was surprisingly good. Had to call the front desk worker upon checkout, who just had me leave the key instead of providing a personal checkout experience.

Rooms were new, clean, well-furnished, and exceeded my expectations. Staff was very friendly, and even called my room shortly after check-in to verify that everything was adequate. Wireless and wired internet were free and faster than most hotels. Was impressed by my room with a king bed in that it had a small nook with a fridge and microwave, and also a small partitioned area with a couch and chair. Hot breakfast was free and included waffles, biscuits/gravy, and bacon which was better than most. Hotel accepted the government per diem rate. Only issue was that the breakfast attendent was hard to communicate with and assumed that we didn't know how to use the machinery, but this was a minor issue. Hard to think of any major complaints.
