re: Far Beyond Driven by Pantera - OldManRiver
I was 14 in 1990, Pantera was by far my favorite band in the world for the next decade or so. Now that I'm 40+, it's not exactly what I listen to all the time, but I do enjoy throwing on some now and then. For me it's really the vocals that I lose interest in, especially on Trendkill and beyond. ...

NBC on Eatel - OldManRiver
For anybody in the Ascension area who has Eatel, do you find NBC has become almost unwatchable during any type of motion or contrasting lighting? The Olympics was horrible with blurring and artifacting, and watching the NFL tonight is more of the same. Just wondering if it's a "me" issue or others...

re: The Great Flood of 2016: Fill Out Disaster Forms NOW. Link Inside! - OldManRiver
So I'm looking at the Amite gauge at Denham(because the Bayou Manchac gauge doesn't work, but that's for another thread :angry:) and I see it's gone down about a foot in the last 5 hours. Does anybody know what the level has to drop to at Bayou Manchac Point before Bayou Manchac would be able to f...

Manchac Place is still dry as a bone. Could have cut grass today if I wasn't lazy. Not sure if we're high enough to be clear or just a hair away from disaster. I'm not gonna sleep well until Bayou Manchac starts flowing the right way and going down...

I'd guess they mean Alligator Bayou Road which is acting as a levee for the homes downstream of Spanish Lake Swamp. Can't think of any actual man made levees near Santa Maria...

re: The Great Flood of 2016: Fill Out Disaster Forms NOW. Link Inside! - OldManRiver
They are really just guessing, no gauge to accurately read there so it could be cresting now or at 3 am. Port Vincent has only gone up .3/foot in the last few hours, and it's south of Bayou Manchac, so I'd assume BM has to be pretty close to crested...

[quote]I-10 is now 2-3 feet deep at Bayou Manchac and increasing, as per scanner.[/quote] This may be a dumb question, but here goes. According to online resources, I-10 elevation at that point is 19.6. To me that means that Bayou Manchac would be around 21.5-22 feet deep, which makes perfect sen...
