Levee's are breaking all around me. Levees soften, And Rains continue to fall. So far my basement is dry.

I went to a public hearing regarding our future. It dont sound so good. They will continue to release 160,000 Qsf of water a second up North, and that will let up some, but they will continue to release large amounts throughout the Winter. The difference of the floods this year versus 93, there are water bubbles popping up on the dry sides of the levees, causing the levees to become weak. There is nowhere for the water to go.
I dont know our future, no one does. If we do have a breach we have approximately 8 hours to move out of our home, is the predictions. We have National Gaurds all around us, protecting us, and sand bagging. They have these 1000lb sand bags that Black Hawk helicopters are placing. There was a levee breach just east of us about 10 miles away. The highway is closed in that direction. It's sad to say, but because the levee broke there, its helping us stay dry.



I'm still amazed after Hurricane Katrina, these people from the Army Corps of Engineers haven't devised a better plan for flood prone areas...... :-\  All we can do is pray for the safety of everyone in your area Checkers........... ;D

I dont know, a bunch of idiots drawing a paycheck to have their heads up each others asses I guess.

Thank you for the prayers. We're gonna need them.

Checkers, hope things are letting up for you guys. I'd send some of this heat and drought your way if I could. We're having the opposite problem, it's been 100+ for the better part of the last month. Everything that once was green is dead, except in the areas where people are ignoring the "water ban" in place all across the area. We are allowed to grill but no firepits, etc. and at the moment we are allowed to water our lawns with limits based on our address. For ex. if your address is an odd # you can only water on odd #'d days and even # addresses on even #'d days. A local liquor store posted "Satan called...he wants his heat back" on their marquee!

Thanks Shonda for sending the heat our way. Causing the water to evaporate, dropping the water levels. They have also decreased the amount of water they are releasing from the damns up North. The Levee's are still holding a lot of water and there is still concern they could break. But, nothing to panic about. Things look like its getting better.

Let me take back that last post........... I thought we would cool down a little.... Far from it today.... It's about 90 right now and the humidity is murder.... I just back from a 2 hour ride in the woods with my dirt bike and I'm drained of all my energy... I'll need a few beers to cool down.... ;D

104 here yesterday, 103 predicted for today.
Still less than 1 1/2 inches of rain total for the year.

I would cry, but my tear ducts have dried up. :'(
