they are doing everything they can to not open the spillway. right now the crest will be a few feet below the 1997 flood which was also the last time the spill way was open. we are pretty well protected behind the levees as long as you forget about Katrina ;).  Pretty much only farmland and pasteur land is on the river sides of the levee. but its still weird to walk around downtown New Orleans and have to look up :-\ to see the ships passing.
