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.
