Lake Charles is not flooded.

To all my friends who have been asking about us. We are just fine. Lake Charles has some streets that flood during every storm. Those same streets drain very quickly. The flooding makes for good TV footage: the drainage, not so much.

To the left, is an image from flooding from May 2017. 

Below, is an image from flooding in 2016. 

 

 

 

 

Here is a story about local Cajun music star Geno Delafose rescuing his mom from the flood waters. A year ago.

Now here is a story about Harvey-related flooding in the Lake Charles area. The source is a San Francisco paper. 

Don’t believe the hype. We are fine. Houston, on the other hand, is in big trouble. Send your prayers their way! And send volunteer efforts and donations over there too.  Trust me: more of us will be going over there to help in Houston than will be needed here in Lake Charles.
