Your Thursday "Jarrod" Update

Well, it looks like Jarrod's crew is going to be there for at least another week. Starting tomorrow they will be working on a substation on the ocean (kinda cool!) that was damaged by flooding. There is a lot of damage and Jarrod's crew is going to fix part of it and then they are sending another crew to repair the rest. Hopefully, the damage isn't as extensive as they think and they will be able to come home sooner.

Here is a map of where they will be staying (Metairie) and where they will be working everyday (Leeville). . . .yeah it's a good ways away!

They are still going to stay in Metairie because there is no where in between there and Leeville to stay besides tents, and they'd rather drive 2-3 hours to get there, and 2-3 hours to get back to the hotel at night to stay in a place with hot water and AC and no mosquitos. Which means they will be on the road A LOT. Nothing new for them I know, but still!!  They only have the hotel rooms booked until the 10th, so hopefully they will be done by then, if not they may be in tents anyway!

Here are some pics Jarrod sent me of a substation in the area that was flooded, this is not one they will be working on. But you can see how it is hard for them to repair the damage when they can't even get to it because of flooding.

That's all I know for now! Hopefully they will have a better idea of how long it will take to repair things and how long that will take tomorrow when they get to actually get to Leeville and see what's going on there.
