Lousiana...
Posted: 28 Sep 2005 08:22 PM
I am down in Lousiana helping out with Katrina and Rita. We are cleaning up an oil spill. Long story and not too great to tell. Anyways, there is no good climbing here, the best hiking I have found thus far is up and over the levees. We all know how big those are...
Please pray for the people here in St. Bernard Parish, most people lost everything in their house as it was up to 10 feet under water. It is hard to see all the destruction every day- I can't imagine what it is like to live it for years to come.

Praying for you and the folks down there. Did you know that St Bernard is the patron saint of the mountains?

Heart-felt sorrow for all who have suffered...
and especially those who may have lost Loved Ones.
Believe, however, one should learn from tragedy; and once again not react
"after-the-fact", but before these foreseeable situations arise.
For it was well-known that the levees and flood-walls were
very probably inadequate to retain the effects of a major storm. If initial estimates
are correct, the clean-up may cost 50-100 times as much as the needed reinforcements.
Poor judgement and poor stewardship in my opinion.

no, really? That is kinda ironic then. I just spoke with someone who is still down there, things have not changed much in the past 6 months. Most homes are still inhabitable, and most people have not been able to move back. The city is coming back together, but they have a lot of destruction/debris to deal with. It is going to take a while before things get back to normal.
