    It wasnít below sea level then but compaction of the sand and clay itís built on just keeps happening and the river is cut off from refilling it.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    Yeah, Iím just trying to understand. When I talked to her on the phone, I asked her about the low spots and the higher spots in the area. She said downtown and the West Bank are the worst. The West Bank has freaking cranks for levees. Iím glad that Iím over 600 feet above sea level.
