Does anyone know if corvetteman is being affected by the flooding in La? I couldnt go to his GFMPH event because I was less than 2 weeks post op, but was wondering.

Thanks for asking.. if the levee holds I will be fine. They have opened the Morganza Spillway locks and that is taking some pressure off of the Levee. The crest of the river is down 2 ft by that action.

The crisis will be over in 2 wks. Thanks so much for your interest and concerns.

Yep will have dinner with Kbota on Wed.

Hey Cajun Jeff,

I have been singing that Johnny Cash song How High's the Water Mama?" about his experience as a kid during the 1937 Mississippi flood.

Jeff,
I was thinking about you when the news came out about the possibility of flooding in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. I'm glad that they have opened up some gates and that you may be out of danger. I hope the best for you and all LA residents.

Thanks guys, A buddy and I went for a day drive and went into the floodway. We were shocked that in several places where they have evacuated there is not so much as a drop of water. I am perplexed as to why the water is not showing.

Only thing we can figure is that the water has not traveled that far from the locks. We also know that the area has been in a bed drought and much of the water is being soaked into the ground.

Time will tell.
