So just caught something on the news about why the city of New Orleans isn’t offering sand bags- something about the pumps and the sand ending up in the drains. Home Depot and Lowe’s have both sold out. We caught a shipment of mulch for 1.75 a bag at Home Depot and used this to help our friends at the Bell Artspace complex. Turns out they are NOT putting up the floodgates on the complex because there is no evacuation order. Seems short sighted given the flooding from Wednesday! So frustrating to know our friends will have to deal with more flooding and the damage that will be added to Wednesday’s damage.
Had 2 bags of red mulch for my garden that we put in front of the Community Book Center. Hoping for for the best.
