Sep. 3, 2021 – Garbage Collection Resumes
According to WDSU News, Garbage collection in Terrebonne Parish will resume their normal schedule.
Officials ask that you sort your garbage into 3 categories:
- Vegetive: Leaves, branches, etc.
- Construction: Sheet rock, carpet, etc.
- White goods: Home appliances, etc.
This is the first I see of Houma/Terrebonne parish on the local news. I’m pissed. T Parish has been destroyed and we are getting almost no air time.
If you have Internet, search for HTV10 on Youtube. Martin Folse, God bless him, is filming and posting what he can on You Tube. I’m going to try to capture the videos and host them on my site. I just took my morning meds and I’m pretty out of it at this time. So, it will be later in the day.
Ida – Aftereffects
We’re back up and running from the heart of Texas Ave, Houma, La.
There have been reports of looters. There have been reports that the looters are getting $1M bonds. Sheriff Soignet means business.
Two credible online news services are, in order of preference:
Houma Times is locally owned and operated and Houma Today is the old Houma Daily Courier bought out by conglomerates and shuffled about until it is nearly unrecognizable.
Key stories from the Houma Times:
- Terrebonne Waterworks: Focused on getting water to hospitals; please conserve water (link)
- GLPC: LA 1 still closed to traffic south of Leon Theriot Lock in Golden Meadow (link)
- Terrebonne and Lafourche Burn Ban Issued Following Hurricane Ida (link)
Key stories from Houma Today:
- Hurricane Ida recovery: Where to find help, resources in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes (link)
- Hurricane Ida shuts Terrebonne’s only two hospitals; makeshift facility being assembled (link)
- Map: Hurricane Ida Power Outages (link to interactive map)
For emergency information call Terrebonne Parish Emergency Operations Center at (985) 873-6357 or follow them on Facebook. However, in my opinion, they don’t keep those websites fresh, so you would probably do better calling them directly.
That’s it for now. Just getting my servers up running and talking to the world. I’m sure I’ll have a lot more to say later, like we were in the eye wall of the storm for about 2 hours and were protected by a trampoline. And funny anecdotes like that.
Gob bless you all,
Jay C. “Jazzy J” Theriot – not really feeling the “Jazzy” part at all.
