Jean Lafitte and his buccaneers will be fighting a strong north wind as they sail up the river tomorrow to take over our city. Something tells me they'll make it, take over and two weeks of merriment will begin.

Don Rivers Downtown Thursday Afternoon

 

It was cloudy in Lake Charles today and we still face a 30 % chance of rain tonight. Tomorrow will also start off cloudy but skies should clear before the pirate attack tomorrow evening . The militia and pirates will be exchanging cannon fire along the seawall starting at about six. My prediction is that Jean Lafitte's forces will win and force Mayor Roach to walk the plank about seven. Temperatures at that time will be 61degrees with a 15 mile per hour north wind. A light jacket will be fine for spectators ... Mayor Roach may want to wear a wet suit!
