Bocage is not flooded nor will flood

“I have had several people write me to ask about flooding.  I am just getting my head above water (figuratively) from work so I can finish this email I started yesterday.
Bocage was built originally in 1801.  There were NO levees.  Back then, they knew what flooded and what did not.   Bocage, l’Hermitage, and Houmas House were built on high ground.  We are 17 feet above MSL and I have checked with everyone to see about flooding.   Evidently, Bocage will not flood under the worst of circumstances today.   That is not to say that the town of Gonzales will still be there, but Bocage will.  ?
