They now reporting some areas had as much as 22" of rain not more then 15 air miles from me. :o

This storm, a low pressure front center had only moved about 70 miles all day. It's getting all it's energy from The Gulf Of Mexico which the waters are very hot at this time of the year. :(  It is starting to break down some, but they expect it to start firing off again around 1 in the morning. :o

Interstate 55 was closed due to high water 50 miles South of us.  The town of Osyka was completely isolated.

Yep, just no winds and this sucker doesn't want to move. >:( Rain fall here is now over 15" total storm. :o Still coming down in buckets. :o Many many people are flooded out where they never were flooded before. Just unreal.

I'm still good, but I'm getting concern now.  :o Don't know how much more rain the area can take. My plans are to use my backhoe, dig up dirt and dump at the door ways if need be.

Sawed from 7:00-5:00 yesterday it was 96 degrees at 2:30 and 98 at 4:00.   Took a chair with me and sat down 5-10 minutes an hour for the last part of the day.

Customer wasn't there left me a list with the off bearer, "pine 1x10, Long".   "2x6 and 2x4, can be shorter".  "Oak 2".  It was OK I've sawn for him dozens of times.   He leaves me a blank check to fill in.

Hour drive home with the AC full blast on me.  Still recovering this morning.

Well, it is still raining here. :o Went for a little drive yesterday and passed in front of Cypressman's place(Member here). It looks like his house took on water along with his lumber yard.

They still are pulling a lot of people out that are flooded. Water has back up everywhere with no place to go. :o Bayous will set all time high records in the area. I'm talking well over 4' from pass high records. :o

Just a heads up. This flooding down here is still going on. There are Emergency workers in Louisiana have rescued more than 20,000 stranded residents -- and, at last count, at least 500 pets -- from submerged homes and cars in the historic floods. At least three people have died. Thousands of homes flooded. Dang near the amount of Katrina. :o I don't know if this news is getting out to the rest on the country, Big news channels have not been playing here. The local news channels have been on 24/7, trying to pass on info. :o Really is a sad thing for me to see this, Hurricane Betsy and Katrina flooding in my life time. :(

Yup, I believe that this flooding will probably affect more people than Hurricane Katrina.  The sad thing is that it is being largely ignored by the national media.  It will get worse before it starts to get better.  The misery will continue for weeks and then the recovery will begin.  So many families have lost all that they have.  The need for the basic necessities is great.

You are right no news about it in OR, must have been 4 murders on 10PM news.  Sorry to hear it, flooding is hard to fight.  Our big flood was in 96', certain areas where roads and RR got washed out were abandoned and never repaired.

The weather is different.  The alders are starting to loose some leaves, this is about a month early.  I think it is low moisture in the soil, we had winter rains but below normal and last summer was exceptionally dry.

The media is spread pretty thin: the flood, the fire, the upcoming elections, zeka, Milwaukee, terrorism, etc.   And they try so hard to make all this entertaining.   We need to pray for all those who are miserable and have lost their homes and possessions in the flooding and western fires.   I Pray that the organizations like the Red Cross and Baptist Disaster Relief can offer some help to these people.

This is a weather phenomenon that has never happened before, and without understanding the terrain of South Louisiana it is hard for others to understand what happened and is still happening.

A topical depression settled over the area and just did not move.  Over 20" of rain was dumped in this low lying area.  The flood could not have been predicted nor prevented.  There is nowhere for the water to go.  Interstate highways are flooded and washed out in several places.  There were people trapped on the interstate when they came to flooded areas.  They turned around only to fine that the highway had flooded behind them.

 Has anyone got word from fishfighter or others from that area. I know that fishfighter
is on west side of the river.  My iPhone Google map shows all the roads that are closed
and it looks like you can't get in or out of Baton Rouge.
