After seeing some of the damage this category 1 storm has done, I’m very happy I left New Orleans.
I know they lucked out on this storm, and some of the surrounding areas did not, but every tropical event is going to be a hold your breath situation for New orleans.
If the city ever gets hit by the wrong storm going in the right direction, it is going to be erased by the Gulf. If a cat 4 or 5 ever hovered in the gulf for a day or 2 south of the city, it’s over.
I still live in the south, but I’m about 100 ft above sea level now instead of 10 ft below. I think New Orleans has exactly as much time as Mother Nature gives her, and Mother Nature is a ruthless :O
Not over until the fat lady sings. She has not even cleared her throat in New Orleans yet. All that water that has fallen north of New Orleans and is still falling, will eventually be putting pressure on the New Orleans levies. This is Katrina in slow motion. Deja vu, all over again.
