Barry is over, which is a good thing. Now, the aftermath. There is not a lot of clean-up because as tropical storms go, Barry was a wuss. He did drop a lot of rain, and we'll have to deal with that for several days as everything dries out. With temps in the 90s and humidity in the 90s, Louisiana will be a sauna for the next several days. T here is a lot of water on the ground that needs to evaporate.
Flooding will continue for several days. As the water that hit the ground during the storm finds its water-course, the streams ad bayous will fill up and backwater will become an issue. All that water has to go somewhere.
We're planning a party for Belle's mother this weekend. We're celebrating her 98th birthday. There is a certain amount of prep work to be done to get ready for the festivities, and I have a crew coming in this morning to help with the installation of another air conditioner to help make the shop more comfortable on a hot summer afternoon.
