This blog originates on the banks of the Atchafalaya River, in Louisiana. It proposes to share the things that happen on and by the river as the seasons progress. As the river changes from quiet, warm, slow flow to rises of eighteen feet or more, there are changes in the lives of the birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles that use the river. And the mood of the river changes with the seasons. I propose to note and comment on these things.

I transitioned a few years ago from a career as a water-pollution control biologist. I want to do this blog to stay in touch with a world outside my everyday surroundings, whatever they may be. I like open-minded company and the discussion of ideas. Photo by Brad Moon.

Shower Sky

Sometimes you just have to say WOW! These late afternoon showers do good things for sunsets. One thing though, the mosquitoes really like company right about this time of day.

The river is at 13.5 on the Butte La Rose gauge, falling very slowly. I don't remember the last time we had 13 feet of water in the middle of July. The Ohio and Mississippi are both falling slowly.

Rise and Shine, Jim
