Many of us complained Sunday about the heat and humidity that we had to cope with, while thousands of people who live in Louisiana were dealing with devastation from a category 4 hurricane. Ida struck Sunday and in it’s wake hundreds of people remain stranded in their homes by flood waters, and thousands of people find they’ll have to do without electricity for days. One of the hardest hit places was New Orleans where scars still remain from Hurricane Katrina which struck 16 years earlier to the day. It’s hard for me to imagine why thousands of people still choose to live in New Orleans which is so often impacted by hurricanes and flooding rains. I suppose if you asked them, they wouldn’t understand why we choose to live in a place like Ohio where we spend at least 4 months every year shivering in winter cold. Our hearts do go out to the people of Louisiana and Mississippi who are suffering through the aftermath of one of the most powerful hurricanes to struck U.S. soil in more than a decade. That’s the way I see it.
