If last night’s weather is at all typical of this region, it’s no wonder that Louisiana is called ‘America’s Wetland’! We have only experienced a night like that when we stayed in the RV thru hurricane Katrina in Fort Lauderdale. We’re in a town called Gonzales, just south of Baton Rouge. We’re here to give our seminars at the Holiday Rambler rally. Here’s a map of where we are.
We had the kind of rain, wind, lightning and thunder that wakes you up … and keeps you up. Jim even felt the need to get up and look around – he found that the sideways rain hitting the coach found some places to get in. There was a puddle on the floor by his desk and water dripping from the light fixtures above. yuk.
He check the weather alert service on his cell phone and read that our area had over 1,000 lightning strikes within the last 5 minutes! The thunder made us hug each other and say ‘I love you’ … just in case that wasn’t thunder but the sound of an oncoming tornado.
whew … all is quiet this morning.
