over topping

ok. inhale. deep, deep breaths. pass me a beer. first of all, this thing is down to a cat 2 and that is fucking good news. but, we are now seeing some over topping at the industrial canal, including over topping towards the upper ninth ward. this will put pressure on the flood walls. they are reassuring us that these walls have been reinforced and i am clinging to that the way turner used to cling to the masts of ships during storms, when he was seeking inspiration in mother nature's violence. it looks like it is going to come ashore down near houma, which of course puts new orleans on the wet, rough side of things. damn. there is nothing to do at this point but wait. we are just waiting this damn thing out. dear god! where is the beer?
