re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
All good. I thought out what I was doing before building in the swamp. Pros outweighed the cons. I can live with the consequences. Pretty certain I won't have this issue again for a long time. Only had a foot of water in my backyard during the March flooding. About 8 times that now. I'm a numbers gu...

re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
Yep. I'm about 10-12 inches higher than your buddy and my other neighbor. Believe they changed the BFE sometime between when they built and we did. All I remember is that we went 1.5' above BFE. Want to say we're sitting at 12.5' (that's what I instructed my builder to do...maybe a little higher as ...

re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
Why do a lot of people build in a flood zone? There's only so much land. We love it on the low side. Large lots, great scenery, quick access to BR and New Orelans. I could go on and on about the positives of living where we live. Every house on that side of the road right there was built at least on...

We've probably crossed paths numerous times over the last few days. Helped sandbag that house and man the pumps one night. Your buddy is a great neighbor. ...

re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
Thought I saw something somewhere that said 46" pumps. Maybe 5 of them. But don't quote me on that. I've seen so many rumors/etc the past week that I can't decipher what's true or false. Completely burned out at this point. Just finished moving more sandbags to help neighbors shore up weak spots in ...

Anyone with an update on ridge/bluff? Over at my folks in Galvez gutting their house and I'm getting flash flood warnings. Only had 6-7 inches to spare and this rain is stressing me the frick out....

re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
Speaking of subdivision people...big shout out to the folks in Oaks on the Bluff. We started off with 10 people sandbagging and by noon we had 30+ people helping. Folks from Oaks on the Bluff came over in droves and started helping us. It was an awesome feeling having complete strangers show up and ...

re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
Any word on when they will start cutting on road to relieve water levels? What's everyone's consensus on how low Manchac has to get? Neighbor just told me he's hearing another 4-5 days. No way we can avoid rain for that much longer......

Where's this? C Braud? Just out of curiosity. I love the area and still learning about it's history. Group up in Galvez but this will be home for many years as we raise our kids here....

Always suspected that. Hard to imagine that much water on top of the bluff. Granted we aren't that far from the MS river....

re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
Not to sure. I haven't kept up with much outside of our row of houses across from Oaks on the Bluff. I was making regular trips down that way to check out water flow but haven't been in three days. If I'm thinking of the correct house, I'd guess they are good. Hard to imagine it getting that high....

re: On the back side of Alligator Bayou...Parish ordered evacuation (Aug 15th) - Taxing Tiger
When do y'all think they'll start digging? I'm dying to get that water moving out before we get any more rain. One neighbor on bluff is doing great at keeping water out and another is struggling tonight. It's been one hell of a fight and I want to see both of them win. Plus I can stop stressing over...

Any of y'all have any updates? Rain set us back a bit. Saw word floating around that we only had another 5-8 inches to suffer through before the rise stopped. ...
