Did I just hear the Gov of Louisiana say that it is "just lake water" in New Orleans now?

Well, the problem with a circular levee system is if it gets breached, it becomes a dam that keeps water from leaving. And the pumps are worthless until the levee integrity is restored.

Philadephia was very severely damaged by a Hurricane in 1878.

well there is some dispute in that. I heard a reporter say that it's a misunderstanding, that the President had to do that as a formality, the process. We don't really know for sure the chain of events.

So am I. Tried to go outside and walk around but keep coming back online. Do you think it's like driving by a car wreck?

This is certainly a huge event. I'm trying to get my mind wrapped around the tragedy.

People are reacting in different ways, and we are reading posts that would normally trigger a disagreement resolved in a few posts through raw emotioned eyes.

I think all of us are seeing things a little more differently, with more raw emotion perhaps, and are lashing out a little bit more than usual out of frustration.

I know I would like to be doing more. Our office in Dallas will probably need to pick up some of the slack from our NOLA office. I have offered my home to any of my NOLA co-workers that may need a place to stay and access to a company resources so that they can be productive and until our NOLA office opens. Beyond that, plus a modest donation or two, I can't do too much more and I am sick at heart and frustrated over that.

Maybe we all need to give the people in the area a break and give each other a break.
