River Crest

The big news here in central Louisiana this week has been the flooding.  All eyes have been on the Red River and the associated waterways that flow into it.  The tributaries are all backed up, but the one piece of good news is that the river seems to have crested, according to the hydrologic data.

That's the plot of the gauge at Alexandria, about 500 yards upriver from where I work every day.  Hopefully, the river will drop back into it's banks over the next week or so.  Of course, they're predicting rain for Wednesday night and Thursday.

Just damn.  We don't need any more rain for a couple of weeks, but we don't get to vote on the weather.
