the dike is not actually gone. it is very damaged, but it is not gone. if you just saw a report on channel 13 reporting that it was gone, that report was done when the water was still over the dike road and rocks.

i was out there this morning and the water has returned to normal levels, and the dike is still there. however, it will be a long, long time before it is usable again.

i don't know when that report was done or why they waited so long to air it, greg, but the dike is still there. all structures that were standing are definately gone, though. they have the dike barricaded at the top of the levee so you can't get down there, but anita's is gone, curl's is gone, and the gazebo on the right where we've had a few 2cool gatherings is also completely gone. only the foundation or a few of the pilings remain.

i will go out and get a few photos tomorrow and post up.

Would you, please?
yes, i will. i'll even see if i can walk down there a little ways without getting arrested. :smile: i don't recall seeing any "no trespassing" signs this morning, just the concrete barricades blocking cars entering.

That's gonna be a chore. But it will be appreciated.

I saw that on channel 13 last night too and was totally blown away that I hadn't heard about it before. Hoping just high water covering the rocks.

Did Boyd's survive since it was on the very front end of the dike?

At least there will be a new road. The old one had so many potholes it was ridiculous
yeah right! no way will they rebuild that road, just going to add more asphalt to bigger holes

all of the structures on the west side of the levee survived. shorty's is pretty badly damaged, but boyd's looks like it hardly suffered a scratch. the snow cone stand and the little bait camp closest to bay street survived, too, as did anchor park.

no building structures on the east side of the levee survived, though. they are all gone.

i have been clearing and cutting tree limbs and hauling off rubbish all day, but i took a few photos of the dike early this morning. i will try to post some photos tonight, but i'm not on my own puter. i still don't have power at my house.
