Coming back into New Orleans Sunday, this is the weather that greeted us. As we got up on the I-10 bridge over the Spillway (just west of New Orleans) the rain started pummeling our car and the wind was whipping at us, making driving unsteady. We arrived home to find out the area was under a flash flood watch -- though it was shining when we pulled up to our place.
We must have brought the weather with us, because on the Fourth of July we drove into Houston in one of the worst downpours you can imagine.
