I went down to the river tonight to see if there was any sign of the level dropping as water is being channeled rapidly out into the gulf to try to keep the oil at bay.

Our Lady of The Rivers still stood isolated in the middle of a large flood. Barges still moving though as you can see.

A washed up buoy on the road leading to the statue suggested a slight drop – four days ago it had been semi-submerged.

We'll see what happens. There are a few storms in the forecast but not much sustained local rain next week.A pretty evening again.
