Your Move, Mother Nature

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 8:39 PM

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

worthy opponent.

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
