Outstanding

Heard 2000 miles of power lines in just the State of Louisiana were taken out. Amazing effort round the clock by so many to keep the juice flowing

Yup, those folks are heroes. As we drove back into town on Wednesday and passed convoy after convoy of help, we knew things would be ok.

It’ll take a while before it’s all good. But the amount of coordinated effort that’s being done is unreal. Maybe unprecedented.

I shouldn’t have made this a blanket statement. It’s returned to much of Uptown, but not all of it.

It's been a few hours since the hurricane left New Orleans tore up and wet.
News of how things are going seems to have disappeared. Wondering
how things are going. Power back? People sheltered and getting homes repaired?
