please let me explain to all of you, that a complete breakdown of civilization occurred. All of you may have Katrina fatigue, but none of you have survived the largest natural (sort of disaster).
None of this would have happened had the Army Corps of Idiots told the US Congress that they needed more money to do the job right.
And there I will segue into another topic.
our Illustrious Army Corps of Engineers has made another mistake. They have accidently cemented shut the gates on the London Canal as well as the 17th Street Canal. Heads up for the way our system works. If the city has street flooding due to rainfall, the pumps turn on to send the access water into the London Canal, 17th Street Canal and Orleans Canal to pump the water back into Lake Ponchartrain.
Now most of our pumps got burned up during Katrina, but the fact remains, that we need to be able to pump the water into the canals, which flow into the Lake. Can't do that when the gates are cemented shut.
A few weeks ago, we had a heavy rain which resulted in very high water whe re I'm renting in the Hood. I called Hubby and told him not to come home as we had serious street flooding....once again he didn't trust my instincts
