Tropical Storm Lee
Tonight we watched “Finding Neverland” on DVD with English subtitles. It was a great help!
A storm that would not remain nameless, now travelling at THREE mph (tripled speed since yesterday), Lee will dump too many inches of rain over the next few days.
Our house is on “natural levee”, 8.9’ above sea level. That’s like a mountain in New Orleans terms. We should be OK but many parts of New Orleans will not.
The pumping stations can only handle so much rain at a time. (Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drainage_in_New_Orleans )
