Relax High Cotton, the only thing we can do is wait and see if the pumps are going to keep up. Here's to hoping everyone's got their shrimp boots, and are reviewing their drywall removal skills. Rats, there goes the Direct TV; good luck all.
I heard on the news that the work spent on the pumps is basically a failure. Lee may not test the levees and pumps, but other storms eventually will...and they say the pumps will fail to provide the correct end-result.

Default It's 8:20 am

The rain is coming down so hard you can't see the parking lot. Yep, I am at work. The wind is strong enough that it is blowing the rain sideways! The rain looks like a silvery curtain.

The biggest problem in getting to work was not the wind and rain; it was the people who were driving as tho there was no wind and rain.

They have blocked off the streets that flood to keep idiots from trying to drive down them.

I will retire soon and will NOT miss coming to work in this kind of weather.

What part of town are you in? I woke up expecting winds and showers and it's only drizzling Uptown.

Correction: As soon I posted the wind picked up. Still no hard rain yet.

We had a tornado in NW Ascension parish, and the top on our gazebo is destroyed. Great time to come home from Houston and visit..

Hey Y'all,

I'm new here to the forum but hope to become a regular as we are planning on moving to New Orleans next summer.

We are planning on coming over to New Orleans early Monday and staying till Tuesday evening. I'm kind of freaking out right now because our hotel room is already paid for and it's non-refundable. I know, dummy me. I'm not scared of a little rain (coming from Galveston) but I really wanted to be able to get out and walk around Monday...basically self-guided walking tours in the Quarter and Garden District/Cemeteries...New Orleans on a tight budget. Monday night we wanted to go out and listen to some music somewhere.

Tuesday we will be looking at UNO, Lusher, and Ben Franklin, so taking the car to those places but still don't and to look like drowned rats.

Thanks,
Tracy

Well Buchworm, I'm heading out either tonight or Sun. night so don't think you're going to be out wandering the streets alone. Just bring the umbrella along and stick to the side of the street with the most balconies, (great rain cover).

worst of lee's impact over for metro new orleans

dave cohen reporting
forecasters say "the worst is over" for metro new orleans.

Channel 4 meteorologist laura buchtel says dry air from the west is now filtering into tropical storm lee, killing off the rain formation over louisiana and preventing showers from wrapping around the center of the storm.
