First time I've used Blogger's phone app to post so this could look worse than the site usually does. Anyway the picture ... if you can see it... is of some downed foliage on Fourth Street on Wednesday.
A lot of Uptown looks like that right now. Most of the city, including Yellow Blogging World headquarters is still without power. Hence the phone posting.
Of course we're the lucky ones as most everyone living outside of the newly robust federal protection system has been hammered hard by Isaac's estimated 12 foot storm surge. So it would appear that America's investment in improved flood protection after Katrina has paid off by saving New Orleans. This time. But obviously there's much more of this vital work to be done.
More when we're fully de-hunkered.
