They Told Us


They said that we were going to have snow. Yep. That’s what they said. We may still see some, but the national weather maps have snow as a possibility in northern Louisiana. Not down here in the swamp. The temperature is cold for us. We had a high of 40 degrees. We had cold rain.Continue reading “They Told Us”

A Mystery To Me


The waiting is the hardest part. So, said Tom Petty. I’m trying to get my work done by about noon because Hurricane Zeta should be along a few hours later. That means I should shut down this main machine. And, close the lower storm shutters. The all seeing dog didn’t like being out this morning.Continue reading “A Mystery To Me”

River Runs Deep


Even though Sally never reached us, we still have summer storms. Yesterday the clouds sort of swirled around and brought us to scenes like the one you see above. We also had cooler temperatures with little humidity. Being outside felt great, The all seeing cocker spaniel liked it so much that we went on threeContinue reading “River Runs Deep”

It’s All Good


Alabama. Hurricane Sally tuned even further eastward. She made landfall at Alabama. She dumped 24 inches of rain in about three hours. She’s moving so slowly that falling water combined with storm surges is turning catastrophic. We, in Louisiana and especially in New Orleans, felt the outer bands of wind and a little rain. WeContinue reading “It’s All Good”

Narrow Way


All about rain. No. This isn’t Hurricane Sally. These pictures were made during a typical gulf coast summer storm. Usually, the humidity collects and sometime in the afternoon all that water needs a place to go. It’s interesting to see. These pictures were made in a grocery store parking. It was raining pretty hard whereContinue reading “Narrow Way”

The Blue Distance


Away in the weather. I wasn’t driving in that place during the storms. But, before and after are good targets. The main idea is to give you a sense of our wonderful weather down here in Southeastern Louisiana. During this time of year we often get a short but violent storm about every other day.Continue reading “The Blue Distance”

Landfall


The truth about nature. She does whatever she wants. You can’t control her and you can’t predict her. It seems to me that she is showing that in three ways. We can’t get our arms around a rampant virus. The west is burning. And, we are being threatened with two hurricanes at once. We dodgedContinue reading “Landfall”

The Time Between


Days in between. Marco fell apart. The tropical warnings came down. We got a little wind and even less rain. Dodged it. Now comes Laura. She won’t even come close to New Orleans. She will make landfall as a Category 2 or 3 hurricane around Lake Charles. I have a fond spot in my heartContinue reading “The Time Between”
