Default Live from the Levee

Keith Norrington just called in from a very wet Natchez Mississippi. Its raining there today, just what they need. The flood stage is 45 and today's reading is 51 feet. Its expected to go to 65 feet by May 20. The gambling boat has been moved upriver a bit and secured, sandbags are going up on Silver Street, which will be closed soon. Water will get into the old Cock o' the Walk Restaurant, the gift shop and other buildings down there. I think the saloon might stay dry. Keith says if Jeffery wants the MAMIE BARRETT, now is the time! They aren't even attempting to visit her, as the whole area around her is flooded. If she's floating, Jeffery, you could just nudge her out! Unfortunately, if she isn't floating, chances are the water will inundate her up to who knows what level. Keith and his parents paid a visit to the St. Francisville/New Roads ferry which will be shut down when the new bridge opens this fall. He reports that the gravel pits are still there at this most scenic DQ landing site... Tomorrow will bring his annual organ workout in the Port Gibson Presbyterian Church, where the chandeliers from the ROBT. E. LEE hang.
