Bonnet Carre` Spillway 5-18-2011

Ryan and I took a trip to the Bonnet Carre` Spillway in Norco, LA today to see the spillway in action. At the current flow rate, it is said to be able to fill 4 olympic sized swimming pools per SECOND! It is going to disrupt the fishing in Lake Ponchartrain but it beats the alternative which is a flooded city. And we know what that feels like.
