Got a foot of water or so this morning as RAIN. It was as if my house was transported to Venice overnight.
Water is starting to subside. But it is not safe to go out. This rain, of course, will severely delay restoration of power in the city; the Parish is still mostly without power.
T.W. Thompson, a member of my church and recently retired prison warden, recently became the city’s director of public works. Pray for him; he was already exhausted after the last two days, and then to wake up to this. Oh, his responsibilities include DRAINAGE, just so my readers can get the picture.
