Hurricane Gustavo didn't ravage the Gulf Coast afterall
I almost saw some disappointment in the breathy news-entertainment reporters there
covering it 24/7...........
See, the water is lapping over the levee! Oh no.
The water is falling from the sky!
Thankfully, the hurricanes did not do horrendous damage. The evacuation
went well. Give kudos to the governor there, he did a great job early
on. The city, county, state, and feds did their jobs, in that order.
If the first response teams are on the ground, doing their part well, all
the other pieces of the puzzle fit right, and it works.
Kudos to the citizens too for doing their part, preparing, evacuating, and
waiting it out. Safely.
Texas and Mississippi flooding badly.
Can Geraldo get over there to see it? Nah......it's all N.O. all the time.
It's a city in a bowl, they get hurricanes every year, some much
worse than others, some not so bad, and some every 50 to 100 years
are like Katrina.
The levees are very old. Did you see what they look like? The ocean
is on the other side. Think of that, the Gulf Coast and the ocean are
right there, by a few homes next to a manmade wall.
Man v. nature, who wins in a level 5 hurricane? No contest.
Memo to N.O. and the federal govt., within the next 100 years, build
sea walls, like Galveton did after it was wiped out years ago by a hurricane.
Or do what the Dutch do......
