Calhouns on the river
There has been a world of talk about widening Interstate 10 from La. 415 in Port Allen to the Interstate 10/12 split as well as a new bridge below Baton Rouge somewhere near Plaquemine. So before we go too far let’s go to the kitchen. Eggs, maybe? You may ask what this has to do with the widening of I-10. Well, we have (as anyone who uses this stretch of highway) a good example of what is now and what will be with the widening of I-10. You got it! It’s the bottleneck where the sand flows from top to bottom in that little neck (time) of a timer. You may increase the lanes to many times what we now have and still see bottlenecks at the restriction that is now our only exit off the I-10 bridge east. And there is talk of a new highway south to a new bridge at Plaquemine. This road has been said to come off I-10 near Highway 415 in Port Allen.

(CNN) Spring is in full swing, and like the weather, so are the thunderous weather-themed proverbs. As we start April, you may have not heard these next two weather proverbs, but they still ring true today. "If it thunders on All Fools' Day, it brings good crops of corn and hay," and "The first thunder of the year awakens all the frogs." The thunder and frogs -- called "spring peepers" -- officially sound the trumpets of spring. These lesser-known proverbs proclaim the beginning of the season and the effects that April's first thunderstorms have on farmers across the world, pointing to the possibilities of a prosperous growing season. It turns out proverbs like these two hold a lot of weight and are many times accurate. Here is why and where to use them.

(CNN) Saturday marks the first day of astronomical spring and the outlook is grim for the western portion of the country, where drought conditions will persist. "Drier conditions in the Southwest US associated with La Niña and the failed 2020 summer monsoon have been contributing factors to the development and intensification of what represents the most significant US spring drought since 2013," said NOAA. Dry weather is expected to linger into the spring, with below average precipitation forecast across much of the West. This will likely make the drought situation even worse. One of the contributing factors to the western drought has been lack of snowfall. The greatest area of snow drought expansion has been in the Sierra Nevada where no large storms have occurred since the strong atmospheric river in late January. This has left almost all of the Sierra Nevada weather stations below the 30th percentile of snow water equivalent, and a few locations in the … [Read more...] about Expect spring to be even drier out west, says NOAA
