It looked like there would be rain today, and there was.

Fortunately, I had figured this out early in the day and avoided going in to New Orleans. I almost got caught, though, by an afternoon shower that started just before afternoon erranding was done.

Unfortunately, it looks like tomorrow will be more of the same. I'll decide on going into the city when I see the up-to-date weather maps tomorow morning.

The big news in New Orleans today was the departure of the brand new warship USS New York, built at Avondale shipyards. The bow contains twelve tons of steel from the 9/11 towers.

People lined the levees for quite a ways to watch it as it began its maiden voyage.

It barely made it under the Huey P. (bridge across the Mississippi) but did fine with the Crescent City Connection (a bit further downstream and MUCH newer than the Huey P. Long bridge).

While I indulged in lupper at Arby's today I started reading She, by H. Rider Haggard (who also wrote King Solomon's Mines.). I made it through the rather lengthy preface, learning a bunch along the way about various writers and literary miscellany of that period. I am looking forward to getting "into" the book proper.

At the moment, I think it's not raining here. I don't care about the rest of the evening and night--I don't plan on going anywhere.

I do hope the weather has made up its mind fairly early tomorrow, so I can plan my day.
