We're working at a less frantic pace this morning. Things appear to be
holding along the 50 mile stretch of levee near Hull. Rain is expected
this afternoon and tonight so they'll be watching to see what starts
leaking. Kind of like a chess game going on here with an unpredictable, but
There's one boil of concern still in Dead Dog. We're going to try and
check it out. Clear water boils are not a problem. That's pure levee
water leaking out which is ok because it's relieving pressure. Dirty
water boils are, however, a major concern. These indicate the levee
itself is becoming compromised. Knowing this difference now apparently
makes the Yats more knowlegeable than some of the Corps workers here.
According to the locals there are Corps staff assigned here who've
never seen a boil. And on it goes.
The Yats have threatened a work stoppage unless fried chicken and
music appear shortly. The locals appear to like our style. Your
Working Boy, Darryl
