Close to home…sorta August 31, 2005 12:54 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
Wow! I just examined the satellite photos and realized that the levee that broke which shows the massive flooding in New Orleans is actually the levee that I used to ride my bike on as a kid. I used to get on skifs and play with crab traps. I’d "hunt" alligator (you use a flashlight to see their eyes sticking out of the water). I shot my BB gun down there and hiked on a railroad track. Well the breach is the west side of Kenner a stones throw from where I lived and flooded mostly undeveloped land. Yes, there are other breaches and water is coming into the city but as soon as I’ve met today’s deadline I want to spend some time drawing on the sat picture and explaining a few things. More to come!add a comment

Today I am happy… August 30, 2005 9:08 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
- …because I kept my cool as my linux development server slowly died
- …because I only cursed during the first brown out.
- …because the two trees that fell in the neighborhood missed houses.
- …because I was able to feed my family tonight.
It is difficult to be happy as my favorite city sits in ruin with so many dead and displaced. My troubles are so minor.add a comment

Lakeview Levee Breach August 30, 2005 11:36 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
Does anyone have anything, a webcam (I know…no power…but that’s not entirely true: A blogger in New Orleans), blog, news or anything talking about the Lakeview Levee Breach?

Engineers have contingencies for levee breaches such as the one that happened Monday, but it will take time and effort to get the heavy equipment into place to make the repair. Breach repair is part of the corps’ planning for recovery from catastrophic storms, but nobody Monday was able to say how long it would take to plug the hole, or how much water would get through it before that happened.
