re: Morganza Spillway to open for only the 3rd time - Tarps99
Looking at the diagram of the Atchafalaya, it shows a Red River at 300k cfs. If it's higher, how much more of a problem that could add to the situation. Also, I believe since we were in a dry spell in 2011, the Red was no where near 300k cfs so that too added a little more relief to the situation...

[quote]One good measure for the water height on this side of the basin is Bayou Boeuf in Amelia. It has been rising almost since the start of the year.

re: Morganza Spillway to open for only the 3rd time - Tarps99
Not to add to the complexity of the situation, we are starting to to get into our wet southerly wind pattern. Normally, water from the adjacent swamps out side the spillway on the East side makes it way down to the gulf via Bayou Boeuf in Amelia and Bayou Black in Gibson. A nightmare scenario ...

re: Anyone ever seen this movie? Soul man with C. Thomas Hal - Tarps99
Couldn’t do this today. You would need to cast a black character for the wannabe black character. You saw the grief that Elton John got for not having an LGBT social justice warrior to play him. So even if you got a black character to play the wanna be black character, I guess whiteface i...
