Ya want me to go WHERE?

With all of the folks gone north, it was really weird driving into New Orleans on the Monday that Gustav was ripping through. I was part of a Corps of Engineers team that deployed to be on-site for a quick response and survey any issues from the storm.

I-10 was completely empty and the whole city looked like a ghost town - except for Cooter Browns bar where they were having a party

We flew 20 hours of missions recording many of the flood control structures and guess what, somewhere on 'Mission 6' is a vintage 'stream that I caught on video.

The rest of the movies are pretty cool, see if ya'll can find the barges and ship jammed under I-10 on Mission 1

Did they have the chicken drop going on at Cooter's? For your information the orginal Cotter Brown's blew up about 20 years ago. I hardly ever go to the new one.

That was the NEW one?

It looked like a good time was going on, the wind was howling and rain was either off or on full-blast and the crowd didn't seem to care.

The old one was in a residential neighbor and had cactus painted on the walls. The hot water heater exploded and took it out. I would drink Foster,s Lager there. You know you are getting old when you think an establishment which is 20 years old is the new one.
