Here we go again

With hurricane season rapidly approaching, it's unclear whether the New Orleans levee system would hold in a catastrophic, Katrina-type storm or be overtopped in even a moderate, category-II, storm. Let's hope we don't have to find out, and that the Corps of Engineers will have time to rebuild the entire system to withstand another major storm.

Batten down the hatchs and ready the lifeboats! Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

We had always thought that when/if DH got tenure and The Kid finished elementary school, we would look for a place in the city, to reduce DH's commute and enjoy the benefits of city life. That would give us time to find a decent school for The Kid.

Now? No way in hell.
