Going over the Toledo Bend Reservoir the bridge it reminded me so much of Hwy 190 going over the Atchafalaya basin.. I started to think about what was happening in that part of the state. What struck me so much was how down the water was at Toledo Bend. It just boggles my mind that we are in drought conditions around here yet they are having to flood the Atchafalaya Basin because of all of the flooding that they have had to the north. I just wish we could have had some of that rain that went north and also some of that water going into the Atchafalaya basin area. Its hard to believe the two reservoir areas are only about a 150 miles apart.
