Good morning, people:
We made it through the night in one piece, it's pretty much stopped raining, winds are out of the west at about 20 kts.
CO brought in just 1 of the 4 RON's that they were talking about: Flight 423 made it in from IAH around 8:45PM. The EWR flight that was headed here diverted somewhere else (don't know where), and the last 2 IAH flights cancelled.
WN just brought in their first arrival (from DAL) around 9:30, and he's headed back out to LAS shortly. Two other WN inbounds (443 and 304, I believe), also just landed, and looking out the window, a CO 757 is touching down.
The screening companies are having trouble getting people to come to work (except on the WN/CO concourse), but at least most of the other airlines aren't expecting any activity until this afternoon.
As for the town, most of the canals are just about at their limits, some areas are flooded, especially in NO, out by the airport is a little better. It's now just a matter of the pumps clearing out what's left, and that'll take quite a while.
