Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

For those of you who may not know, we are currently experiencing record flooding here in Louisiana. This weather has been some of the worst that we have seen in our parts in quite some time.

But since we have been so busy going back and forth to the hospital this past week with Patrick, I never even paid attention to some important little things around the house that I really should have in order to prepare for this weather….

At least we had our Cajun Rain Gage ready…

Patrick was released from the hospital yesterday and the weather didn’t really start getting bad until we were on our way home. Well, we thankfully made it safely. I got him in bed, and unpacked everything. Then IT HIT ME…. I realized we were out of some essential items like TOILET PAPER, SHAMPOO, and FOOD!And the parish closed and barricaded our main road, so we were stuck for the night.. YOWZA!

So, we had a fun night of basically throwing together a crazy meal of chips and salsa, popcorn, ding dongs, spaghetti-o’s, and Ramen noodles. We also found a pack of leftover wet wipes in the car from when our youngest daughter finished potty training last year (And no, we did not flush them.) As for the shampoo, we scraped together all of the little bottles of samples from hotels, etc… It was like having an ADVENTURE right in our own home, and the kids LOVED every second it!🙂

Thankfully it stopped raining long enough this morning to head right down the road to the Dollar Store for a few items, but I sure would have liked to have been able to get to Walmart. Maybe I need to get me some SCUBA gear.😉

Or I guess we could always wait for Noah to pass by and we can catch a ride with him…

As for all of  our fellow Louisianians, we are praying for all as this terrible weather continues to pass through and affect the residents of our state and surrounding areas. Please STAY SAFE and do not try to get out in this weather.
