Neighbors are coming back. Not just new folks, but neighbors from the old neighborhood. I discovered this the other night when I saw some lights on the upper floor of the house at Iberville and Lopez. They’ve got a generator, and they’re living upstairs. I don’t know these folks, but I expect I’ll meet them soon. The downstairs was an ultra-low profile hair salon before it got flooded. (I had walked past dozens of times before I realized it was there. No signs.)

Also, Gwen got her trailer.

She called Entergy to find out when she can hook it up to some juice.

The answer? May. May! That’s two months from now.

And they’re talking about raising utility rates big-time.

And so the recovery crawls onward.

  1. Do you see this as an opportunity to build a stronger neighborhood…communicty…via people who return and try to make sense of the madness? Conflict seems to bind folk. A common foe. Does that seem to make a stronger Nola possible in yer mind?

    “HELP me show him i’m Not crazy”

    Ah, Kelley, judging by your post, I’d say Xy’s got her work cut out for herself. And really, Xy’s got enough work just being a teacher, so cut her some slack.

  4. Hi Kelley! Happy Birthday! Long time no hear from. Hey, what are you taking Lamictal for? I understand it’s presecribed for a number of different things, but I assume from the way you mention it that you’re taking it for seizures. You’ll be happy to know I seem to have outgrown my seizure problem and have been off meds for a few years now.

    And M.A.D., you nailed it. At the very least, I will be striving to be a better neighbor from now on.
