Friends- we are still at 35 feet. That means we are not even out of the major flood yet. And our houses are literally just sitting in that bayou water.

I’m really not ready for the rebuild pep talks or advice on going back in yet. My mind is still processing the loss I can see. I’m not ready to imagine what the inside of that house looks like. Or to think about if the letters my mother wrote me will have had the words washed away. Or the last card my Grandmother sent will just be a blur of colors. I try not to picture what we will face when that day comes.

And since the Last estimate said a full week before we can enter the city, I have plenty of time for that.
