Here We Go Again...

Looks like another hurricane coming in. I sure hope it doesn't hit New Orleans and the same coastline again. Some of the people are just now getting to come back to see what is left of their homes.

Some people are on tv right now talking about the damage to their house. They say it is a total loss but at least the house is still standing. Thank God for them it wasn't a tornado.

If it starts raining again right away there is really going to be hell to pay for all those folks. Especially New Orleans residents. New Orleans is still below sea level and there is still nowhere for water to go and that's not going to change right away.

Maybe in the future, the Mississippi can be diverted by huge underwater pipes with gates or something in extreme cases like this. That would eliminate water coming down the river and mixing with sea water and would make it easier to pump it out.
There might be enough money allocated already for this disaster to get a good start on a project like that.

Everyone, keep your fingers crossed for these people. I guess that'll do as much good as anything.

Later...

I hate to say this, but maybe it would be a good idea for the mayor to back off from his silly request to bring 200,000 inhabitants back to New Orleans.

What I'm watching this morning is the inability of the roadways to handle the traffic out. One newscaster sais that many people took all of their vehicles, doubling or tripling the number of vehicles necessary. I never thought of it that way, but imagine if everyone packed "all" of their cars and trucks with belongings then hit the road.
