Default Bye Bye Venice!

I sure did have some good times there. This time, I'm not sure those good folks will have the resources (or the will) left to rebuild.

Maybe I'm wrong, and Gustov will not be as bad there as I think it will (you know, that "left turn" the forcasters keep talking about), but as of now, it looks like Cypress Cove and Venice Marina are going to be in the peak surge area on the right side of the eye wall.

It is going to be tough. Every 20-25 years you can amortize the costs:every two years make it hard tore-coup the investment.

They'll both be open in again in a matter of weeks. Naysayers just make them stronger. There were people living down there since before oil rigs and helicopters.

I believe you are absolutely correct....There are always those that want that jumping off spot.

I SURE HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT BUT THE COST OF REBUILD AND GETTING INSURANCE MAY JUST PROVE TO BE TO MUCH! :angel

Venice should be fine. I think Cocodrie is done for a long time though since they took the direct hit.
