Friday Musings

I was fortunate to receive this text message last evening due to the impending heavy rains in Louisiana. It looks as if the area below Lake Pontchartrain dodged a bullet, but the northern part of the state as well as north of Lake Pontchartrain received in excess of 10 inches of rain.

I was able to enjoy some morning coffee tawk on my couch.

Here was the radar earlier today.... yikes!

Rivers and stream waters have surpassed their banks and major flooding is happening all over the state.

I think we all need our Cajun rain gauges like these.

Please join me in praying for those affected by the recent heavy rains.

Rain, rain go away, y'all!


  1. Saw the pictures. Praying for LA!!! We loved driving through on our way to Texas.

  2. Good morning, Ron! We surely did dodge the bullet again. Unfortunately, the Northshore and North Louisiana didn't, and the flooding is heartbreaking. My niece lives in West Monroe and had 12 inches of water in her home and her neighbors in the back of the subdivision have water to the roof tops. I join you in praying for all those people who have been affected by this disaster. Have a great day! xoxo

  3. Everything over in Fairhope is being postponed except for the BBQ competition put on by the Rotary Club. With teams competing from out of town, it goes on rain or shine! I'll put on my boots later and slosh through the mud to support their efforts. This had better be some damn good BBQ!

  4. Visiting from SUYL. Now following and looking forward to reading more - Lauren has mentioned you on her blog and I've been meaning to find you :-)

  5. You cajun rain gauge looks like something you might see in my Ky. ha. Good luck with the rain. sheila

  6. I hate to hear of anyone being flooded out of their home! I've been watching it on the news. Glad to hear that your area is ok. Love that cajun rain gauge! Ha!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
