A cyclist navigates floodwaters as the National Guard transports residents to the Superdome after their neighborhoods were flooded by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Although officials called for a mandatory evacuation of the city, many remained. A bike probably works at least as well as any other mode of wheeled transport in New Orleans right now.AP Photo/Eric Gay from the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Hm... now THAT'S an idea that hadn't occurred to me. Good idea, actually. Bicycles would probably work BETTER, now as well, as other forms of wheeled transport since there's no engine to gum up with all the water and mud. ;)
I've ridden flooded out roads before. Ironically, in warm weather, it can actually be FUN. Fun that motorists, incidentally, miss out on. ;)
Mind you, there's nothing fun about what's going on in New Orleans right now. :( My best wishes are with the families affected.
