Drove to Convent today. It is about 45 miles from New Orleans and as far as we are driving from home. This is where we are staying for the next two weeks. We chose to leave Baton Rouge early this morning so we could be stopped by the time the severe weather was supposed to hit. After parking, we waited and sat through 4 hours of a tornado and severe thunderstorm watch. This is part of the same storm blasting the NE states and eastern Canada. After the front went through, the temperature dropped by 30 degrees and we will probably see frost tonight and possibly freezing rain on Friday morning. We have to get up and on the road in the morning to make sure to get to the airport on time for our VIPs - that is if they are not going to be late.
