Quick update...

February 18, 2017 02:39PM
We have moved everything we could to 'higher ground'... which means on tables in some cases. Computers, backups, are all packed and ready to go.

The situation on the levee is the same, dire. More rain is expected this evening and tomorrow. They were able to do a little work on the Levee today, but not much. It's a mud bog up there and the soil is alkaline to start with. That means the ground is soup.

Apparently they have trucks loaded with sandbags ready to go but this makes little sense to me. There are potentially 80 homes threatened.... it would take an army, a LARGE army. Probably just doorways. No one is sure where the water would go, exactly... as I've said before on this board this area is as flat as a billiard table. There are canal banks, a few, that should hold the water back from some places, like the town itself, and some homes have canal banks that could help.... unfortunately not mine. My home is directly in line and will be one of the first to to.

Since we can't empty the house I'm going to stay.... I'm in no danger. My family will all go to my Daughter's house... safe and snug.

That's about it... wait, hope, pray... not much else we can do. - Jimmy
