After 100 days of living without furniture, television, and extra socks we are finally moving back into our house. I am up to my elbows in boxes, unpacking around nap times and trying to get everything back in order after a long absence.
I could write a post mortem, about how this was one of the longest durations for a flood in US history creating over $2 billion in damages to levees in multiple states. Or how the flooding was largely caused by screwed up policy guidelines and poor choices on the part of the Army Corps of Engineers. Emails show they knew months in advance that there would be a problem but choose to give the affected public only one week notice with a press release right before a holiday weekend.
