Lucky iz us, but God still has it in for New Orleans

Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes. We were spared here, but Mother Nature appears not to be done with New Orleans. That sucks and  it’s not fair.

If there’s an upside to being a target, it’s this: whenever anything even vaguely Tropical  threatens, the process of ‘battening down’ the house leads to some productive weeding. Everything under 30 pounds has to be moved inside away from the wind,  which means it is actually noticed and handled, and consequently a lot of what’s noticed (out of sight, out of mind ya’ know) doesn’t make it back, but goes instead into the Goodwill boxes. And that is ‘a good thing’.

  1. Mother Nature appears not to be done with New Orleans. That sucks and it’s not fair.

    It might be time to rethink a major metropolitan coastal city that sits BELOW sea level.

    Mother nature may not be nice, but she most certainly is fair.

    • Mostly agree, although we give New Orleans a pass since it set down roots 400 years ago. But they should really get tougher about disallowing new development. It’s like here in FL, where we keep building into the Everglades and then the poor darlings get upset when their wall to wall gets wet!
