“Certain death” is apparently uncertain. After many dire warnings about the rising waters of Ike, things here in Lafayette are much better than they could have been. The Vermilion River is ever-so-slightly in our backyard, barely out of its banks. During Rita, the water came within 10 feet of our house. So, we’re rather pleased that the reality was less than the prediction in our case.
For those out there who weren’t so fortunate, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I’ll post a photo of the river later today.
