Be careful what you wish for:coocoo







Recognize the neighborhood Mr. Hobbs?





























It's not every day you see a big tree floating down the river...roots and all



The river hasn't even crested yet and it's not expected to crest until Friday so the water level has yet to rise!!! The E.B.S. has called for mandatory evacuations for several towns not because they're being flooded but because levee systems were just built and they've never been tested to withstand something of this magnitude. I sure hope they work or else we could be in deep shit...literally.

I've got an inch and a half wide crack running through my back yard it's so damn dry. :banghead

I remember here in Dallas about five or six years ago, we were in the middle of a drought and one of the fiber installers downtown ruptured a water main. They had flooding in the middle of the drought. Yup, flooded underground parking garages. Some guy had a classic restored Stang parked down there. Sucked to be him.

Good news...the levees did their job and the river levels are starting to drop. Now it's just a matter of cleaning up the streets and all will be good.

So you guys are not going to have to go to the nearest stadium or dome and wait for the govt to save your asses. Are there people looting and shooting at authorities yet....I bet not.

Seriously though, I am glad the water is going down, VA got pretty lucky too, and so did I as it seems like anytime this happens I am travelling and not at home. Same thing happened when Gastone camethrough and flooded everything, I was on the road.

The point Dave was making (I think) is that the most regrettable part of the whole Katrina ordeal was not strictly due to natural causes, but the people involved, their selfish, lazy irresponsible behavior and their expectation - even demand that others should bear the cost of their choices (not all of course, but an alarming number).

Theres your link to the low level crack head ****ing bottom feeders you got to watch on TV. Where buying 2 packs of newports and a bottle of MD 20/20 and cisco was their hurricain plan. The life of none working take care of me goverment welfair collectors. Im black you used us as slaves attitude still resides.

http://www.gnocdc.org/orleans/7/16/snapshot.html

188,365 low income apartments in the downtown area in walking distance to the superdome. 30.6% make less than $14,000 a year out of 188,365 units. You figure 2-3 per unit and you have close to 300,000 in the low income housing. Thats 91,800 that seem to think they deserve goverment help because their unable to work, but are fully capable of killing you over a cigarette.

I grew up down there and feel no compassion for those ****ing leaches. Most of which are 19-35 years old and not a damn thing wrong with them, except laziness.
