 Good Morning NOLA!  It’s cold and it’s wet!  Yuck!  I bet you didn’t need me to tell you that.  The rain is here for the next couple of days and as cold as it is there is a chance for sleet and even possible snow.  This is not the kind of weather you want to be out and about in.  Personally my plans revolve around my bed and my couch for the next few days.  The highs are barely getting out of the thirties if that.  Our lows are staying in the thirties over night.  Don’t forget to take care of the pipes, the pets and your peeps.  It is cold out there.  For you northern transplants out there it might be a joke to you but this is serious weather for us. We are not used to frozen rain or snowballs, unless it’s the kind you get from the snowball stand in the sweltering summer.  Have a great day whatever your plans are and I’ll see you in NOLA! …. after it warms up .

Good Morning NOLA!  It’s going to be a hot one today. By this afternoon we will reach near record  high in the  eighties.  Only a twenty percent chance of 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 twenty percent chance of showers for Saturday and Sunday. It is only suppose to be isolated thunder storms but be prepared. Tuesday looks like it will start a few days of rain for the Big Easy.  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!

Sticky: Ray Rocks Renovation

Chances are if you have walked down any French Quarter street in the last few years you have seen my friend, Ray Hostetter.  He might have the phone to his ear or a tool of some kind in hand, but he always has a smile and a “Hey there” for passersby.  Now that may have been the extent of our association too, except for one thing (ok, two) I love construction, reconstruction, building, renovating, decorating. Whatever name you put on it, the creative process is fascinating to me.  Oh, and the second thing – I’m just nosy.

In my “ratting” around the Quarter, I had seen Ray at times working on a particularly beautiful place on the corner of Dauphine and Orleans. I could see the intensive work being done to the outside, but it was just killing me to know what they were doing to the inside. Come on, I know you know exactly what I’m talking about.  I saw the nose smudges on the windows. (Oops, sorry.  I guess those were mine.) Lo and behold, on this particular day a couple of years ago the door was wide open, so um, what to do, what to do?  Exactly, I went in.

Ray grew up in the construction business and was working in California until a series of events changed life as he knew it.  Work got scarce in big CA, Katrina hit New Orleans, a family member living in New Orleans said “Bring the wife and new baby over and work here”.  After doing a couple of flood houses in mid city and a 20 unit apartment complex Ray was introduced to the owner of the Orleans Avenue project, who we will call Mr. C.  It is interesting how one thing leads to another.  Mr. C. had rented a Bourbon Street balcony one Mardi Gras from Ray’s relative years ago and they became friends.

While into the Orleans Avenue project, Mr. C. decided to acquire the property at 435 Bourbon and turn it from a t-shirt shop into a bar. (Incidentally, this was the same place that he had rented all those Mardi Gras’ ago.) The whole bottom floor had to be taken out for the new electrical so while Ray was digging trenches between floor joices he made a discovery, an 1850 bottle of “Dr. J. Hostetter Stomach Bitters”.  This concoction of vitamins and herbs and 94% alcohol was sold to the Union army by train car from Pennsylvania during the first prohibition. Cool, huh? But it gets better. Did you notice that Dr. J and Ray share the same last name?  After doing a little research Ray found he and Dr. J were actually related.  That was when it all made sense for Ray, “I am in the right place doing what I am supposed to be doing.”

The Orleans Avenue project had discoveries of its’ own.  The first came when removing walls, Ray came upon the initials A.H. (another relative??) carved in a board with the date 1901.  Attached was a 1901 silver coin which today is worth $6,000.00.  These old French Quarter buildings are treasure troves and that is exactly what Ray thought when he uncovered the next surprise.  Extensive work was being done on the previously lathe and plastered walls.  Mr. C wanted the old brick walls exposed, cleaned and repointed.  In the process it was noticed that there was a definite brick archway visible just above floor level in the downstairs bedroom.

 At this point, you know a vision of Lafitte’s treasure was dancing in Ray’s head.  The old wood plank floors were pulled out and what looked like a tunnel opening was uncovered several feet under the existing floor.   Alas, the only thing inside was years upon years of mud and muck, no treasure.  But could it have been a bootleggers’ tunnel from Orleans Avenue to St. Peter and Dauphine, where for years the Tunnel Bar sat on the corner?  Research seems to lean more toward what was called a “cabinét”, something like a root cellar and not a tunnel at all.  Rather than cover up this historic piece of architecture, lightning and special glass flooring was installed to show it off.  It is breathtakingly beautiful, just like the rest of the three story structure and “slave quarters” included in this compound. 

Restoring this exquisite showplace to the splendor it deserves was a demanding, detailed project three years in the making and is today a phenomenal piece of workmanship.  A credit to a man who truly loves what he does. The mastery of his craft is so obvious in even the smallest detail. Bo might know sports, but Ray definitely knows renovation. You rock Ray!

 Good Morning NOLA!  I’m singing in the rain this morning.  How about you?  Gues what I’m singing?  How about “Rain, Rain go away”??  Well, we can sing all we want but it looks like we are stuck with it for the next couple of days.  There is an eighty percent chance today and one hundred percent chance tomorrow. The high for today just might reach the sixities with the low tonight in the forties.  Once the rain clears out by Wednesday the temps will be dropping once again with our overnight lows back in thirites. The silver lining on this cloud is once the rain passes through we don’t have to worry about it until again until next week.  Try to stay dry in the mean time.  Have a great NOLa day!

Hurricane Lane Hits Mexico As Dangerous Category 3 Hurricane

Hurricane Lane and its eye have just come ashore in rural Mexico. According to NOAH and the National Weather Service, it is still a destructive category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of over 125 mph. Warnings of 6 to 12 foot storm surges and possible flash floods and mudslides have been made as this could be a very devastating hurricane.
Hurricane Lane has already become deadly as it caused its first death with a child crushed by a mudslide and the resulting collapse of the house they were in.

On Saturday morning Hurricane Lane changed course and headed directly inland on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Earlier trajectories and storm tracking plotted the area of Acupulco and the tip of the Baja peninsula similar to Hurricane John from just 2 weeks ago. Regardless, Hurricane Lane is just as strong if not stronger and is a very sizeable hurricane with damaging winds of 125 or more mph.

The most damage may not come from the actual hurricane itself, but the storm surge, flooding, and resultant mudslides as the hurricane goes inland and over hilly and mountainous terrain. The biggest and most devastating hurricane of all time in the east pacific was the Mexico Hurricane of 1959. It came ashore as a category 5 hurricane with over 160 mph sustained winds. Over 1000 people died due to the flash floods and mud and land slides. Many more died from the thousands of venomous scorpions and snakes that were unearthed and misplaced by these mud and land slides. This could very likely happen here with Hurricane Lane as it is powerful enough to unleash similar mud and land slides and flooding.

This could also be greatly impacted, just like New Orleans, in that being rural many people are trapped and cannot get out in time. Emergency workers and help may not be adequate enough and will have a hard time reaching hurricane victims. Also the threat of deadly poisonous scorpions and snakes aggressive from displacement will conjure much fear in the minds of emergency personnel from the memories of thousands of lives lost to these venomous reptiles during the great hurricane of Mexico in 1959.

In preparation many people have been evacuated, but many are left stranded and unable to leave. As the eye of Hurricane Lane moves farther inward we will get more of an idea of the damage and destruction. The hurricane prediction center and the National Weather Service can only predict 3 to 5 days ahead of a storm, but all indications show the hurricane moving inward into more hilly and mountainous regions. This could be a repeat of the great hurricane of 1959 and a terrible disaster for the people on the pacific coast of Mexico and our hearts go out to them.

Crown of Life Lutheran Church New Orleans, LA

Crown of Life Lutheran was flooded during Hurricane Katrina. Many volunteers from around the country spent all most two years helping the congregation to rebuild. The church was also used as a staging ground to reach out to the New Orleans area. The congregation recently completed this video in order to let everyone know their back and with God’s help ready to serve.
