It's being called the "Great Flood of 2016"

    by Ann Vail Shaneyfelt

    August 16, 2016 - The last few day have been trying ones for most of us here in south Louisiana. If we aren't flooded, then our friends and family likely are. Recovery will take some time but many buildings and offices are slowing starting to open back up and roads are starting to clear and reopen.

    Many schools and homes were completely flooded and will take time to get back to normal. The school where all three of my children attend will not be open for another 3-4 weeks. Until then, I will likely spend much of the work week working from home with Stephanie and Rose handling the office. Please bear with us while we get our city back to normal and start rebuilding and cleaning up after the flood.
