I hope everyone is gearing up for a good weekend.
I drove to work this morning listening to the news that there are going to be TWO hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico. At the same time. Two hurricanes hitting the continental US at the same time has not happened since 1933. But it's 2020 so, of course, this is the year it happens again (sigh). My apocalypse bingo board is almost complete, lol. I was already planning to take a vacation day on Monday, so now I'm especially glad I am because it will probably be storming all day.
On a bright side, here in NOLA, they are renaming Jefferson Davis Parkway (a major street) to Norman C. Francis Parkway. It will take effect on 1/1/21. He served as President of Xavier University (a predominantly black college) from 1968-2015. 47 years! He is also a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. This particular road doesn't quite go past Xavier, but it's only a few blocks away. Dr. Francis is also still alive, which I think is another extra neat nugget of info. People usually don't have streets named after them until after they have passed away, so it's nice that he can enjoy this honor during his lifetime.
Edited for more info.
