Many in way of diverted Mississippi River floodwaters ignore evacuation order~Standing on the banks of the Atchafalaya, where the water was about 6 feet below the top of the levee, Mike Gauthier vowed to stay, even though he expects flooding to be worse than in 1973.
"It will take more than this to throw me out of here, " he said. "If things get bad, I've got a houseboat in my back yard." If the town isn't washed off the map, Gauthier said he's looking forward to the fishing. "After the 1973 flood, you could throw a line anywhere with any bait and catch a fish. I don't think Aunt Jemima could sell enough corn meal for all the fish we caught, " he said. "Not only that, I ate so much crawfish that I almost started walking backwards."
