 Good Morning NOLA!  It’s a mild and muggy day today.  We have a sixty percent chance of scattered showers today with the bulk of it coming later this evening.  Tomorrow is looking like eighty percent chance of rain, so I’m not too sure I’m up for parade watching but you guys go right ahead.  After the rain passes through we will have some cooler temps.  Sunday night’s low is back in the forties.  We will have some clear to partly cloudy skies with highs in the sixities to take us though Mardi Gras day though.  Sounds pretty close to perfect for some bead catching weather.  I will be pretending to “Mardi Gras” on Sunday on the set of the new Nicholas Cage movie being shot here in town.  It should be a lot of fun.  I am also looking forward to a couple of days on the new season of Memphis Beat at the end of next week.  Mark your claendars for a week from Saturday.  I will be signing my new book “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” on Jackson Square at the 1850’s House store.  I hope to see you there.  Have a great weekend. See you in NOLA!

Time from New Orleans airport to French Quarter?

How long does it take to get from the airport to the French Quarter. I’ve been there several times and it seems like it can take a long time depending on time of day. How long at around 6:00 pm on a Tuesday evening?

Many people travel to and from New Orleans and Baton Rouge. So around 6:00 P.M., the traffic can get very heavy on the I-10 especially because of all the construction. I would say the most it would take you is an hour, but definitely no more.

Swing Back In New Orleans (Hurricane Katrina Tribute)

UPDATE:You can now download the free mp3 at mikegreca.com. I will be recording a studio version next week for iTunes.
I wrote this for the people of New Orleans shortly after Katrina hit. Now as the five year anniversary approaches, I would like to share it with them. If anyone knows Harry Connick Jr. I would love to pitch this to him!!!! Just imagine him on keys :)

Lyrics:
And now we all know what it means
to miss New Orleans
especially if you called it home
Lake Pontchartrain went and flooded them streets
of Louis Armstrong’s town
We’ll build it brighter than it’s ever been
Well I swear we’re gonna get the swing back in New Orleans again

Mardi Gras, she’ll be boppin real soon
and crooners crooning to that creole moon
Street cats playin them old Orleans tunes
So hard to not sing along
We’ll build it brighter than it’s ever been
Well I swear we’re gonna get the swing back in New Orleans again

No storm ain’t ever gonna keep
them horns from blowin, people tappin their feet
I bet if old Satchmo were here he’d sing
“Oh, what a wonderful world”
So now we all know what it means
to miss New Orleans
Some how it just feels like home
We’ll build it brighter than it’s ever been
Well I swear were gonna get everyone to sing
“We’ll bring that swing back in New Orleans”

Good Morning NOLA!   It’s Thursday and the weekend is getting closer.  I am certainly looking forward to it.  The morning will be full of sunshine.  By this afternoon we will reach a high of eighty.  No rain in the forecast today but our chances increase over the weekend.  By Monday of next week we will see a forty percent chance.  The forecast is showing a thirty percent chance of showers for Saturday and Sunday. It is only suppose to be isolated thunder storms but be prepared. I will have the umbrella at the ready but there is plenty of cover in the Quarter. What’s a little rain after all. So don’t let that keep you from coming out to the French Quarter to see me at the 1850’s House Store.  I will be signing my latest book “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” and also  “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!”  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!
