When The Levees Break

posted by on September 1 at 18:02 PM

Not this time around:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (MarketWatch) — Hurricane Gustav moved past the New Orleans area Monday, and though it still threatened to flood some areas with storm surges, the city’s levees and floodwalls apparently braved the worst the storm had to offer with minimal damage.
The front end of Gustav was working its way toward northwest Louisiana and had been downgraded to a tropical storm, although there were warnings the storm’s back end still featured hurricane-force winds.

Sometimes my back end features hurricane-force winds. Thus far it has not been necessary to call out the National Guard.
