As I read the news articles and listen to the reports regarding the outcome of Hurricane Katrina, I am overwhelmed by the devastation that is unfolding every day. I was watching MSNBC or CNN yesterday and they had a drawing of what is actually happening down there in New Orleans. Since the city itself sits under sea level and is surrounded by two levees, one containing Lake Pontchartrain and the other restraining the Mississippi.....it creates a bowl like effect for NO. They cannot contain the water coming in from either side so the flood waters continue to rise until.....the experts say.........the water level in the bowl reaches the level of the levees.
I cannot even imagine what that must be like for the folks who live there and who may never be able to return.
