A heavy band of wind and rain has swung into Monroe. We've been getting a lot of rain and strong winds for about half an hour now. Water is puddling in the grass behind the apartment. This rain may last a while. I see on the news that the band that's hitting us extends well past Alexandria. The one saving grace is that this band is not as bad as the one that's hitting Jackson, MS. That band is spawning tornados.
The weather is very odd. The rain just died down, but the wind has picked up. I suspect we're going to go through a period of lulls and gusts into this evening. As long as the wind doesn't get any worse than this, we should still have power.
Oh, well, we had three straight weeks of nothing but sun. It's nice to have a change! *grin*
