The Big Easy is a Little Stressed

Water levels are rising, crest not expected until 23 May. They are planning to open two spillways that are rarely used, and when you live below sea level, you worry about excess water. Folks in the Big Easy are usually pretty laid back, but when I visited recently, you could feel some tension. Drinking helps. I stayed at the International House, and others came over for fancy drinks in the lobby bar, Loa. Yum.
