A New York Times story about New Orleans residents who don't want to leave the city describes one especially well-provisioned couple:
They live on high ground in the Bywater neighborhood, and their house escaped structural damage. They are healthy and have enough food and water to last almost a year.
They have a dog to protect them, a car with a full tank of gasoline should they need to leave quickly and a canoe as a last resort. They said they used it last week to rescue 100 people.
"We're not the people they need to be taking out," Mr. Kay said. "We're the people they need to be coordinating with."…
Ms. Harris said she did not want to leave. "I haven't even run out of weed yet," she said.
