Good gosh, just saw radar for Louisiana and Mississippi.
Louisiana is gonna have flooding as are we. In fact the ground here is so saturated that we had flooding yesterday. That beast of what is in Louisiana and headed our way is gonna dump a lot of rain. And I do mean a lot.

I bet MSU / Ole Miss dont play tonight. That’s one big arse system.

The sewer and septic systems in those areas have got to be swamped. So much rain.

It’s the worst in my short lifetime, the farmers around here are getting no mercy. Prayers for the Ms South Delta, most of that has been under water since February.

Every year is the same.

re: Good gosh, just saw radar for Louisiana and Mississippi.
No silly boomer, every year isn’t the same. The Mississippi Delta is experiencing the worst flood since 1923, the Arkansas river which drains most of the middle part of the country is having record flooding, along with the Mississippi. Corn and soybean planting is way behind, which is setting up a very interesting fall and potential black swan event in the AG field.

‘Punched in the Face’: U.S. Floods Snarl Trucks, Trains, Barges

quote:

At just two locks along the upper Mississippi, almost 300 barges are being held in place as a result of high water and fast currents, according to Waterways Council Inc., which tracks barge movements. And hundreds more are waiting in St. Louis, Cairo, Illinois and Memphis, Tennessee, said Deb Calhoun, the council’s senior vice president. “It’s a big bottleneck,” Calhoun said. The contiguous U.S. had its wettest January to May on records dating back to 1895, according to the U.S. National Centers for Environmental Information in Asheville, North Carolina. Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri had their rainiest May on record, the center’s data shows, while Arkansas, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Illinois were all in the top 10.


quote:

The repercussions will ripple through the economy for the rest of the year, said Jon Davis, chief meteorologist with RiskPulse, a weather analytics firm in Chicago. When crops that have been sowed late in the season to start moving to market, barge, truck and train traffic will soon be stretched thin, he said. “There are a couple of things that make this situation incredibly unique, the first of which is the longevity of the flooding, ’’ according to Davis. “The other factor is how widespread everything is.’


quote:

Corn and soybean planting lags the five-year average, and grain shipments on the Mississippi, Arkansas and Ohio Rivers have already dropped well below last year and the three-year averages, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.


But it’s just the same right, OP.
