The next morning, the resulting floodwaters came up about 6 feet into most of the homes in the area.
Mrs. Boudreaux was sitting on her roof with her neighbor, Mrs. Thibodaux, waiting for help to come.
Just then, Mrs. Thibodaux noticed a lone baseball cap floating near the house.
She saw it float far out into the front yard, then float all the way back to the house. It kept floating away from the house, then back in.
After the baseball cap had done this quite a few times, her curiosity got the best of her, so she asked Mrs. Boudreaux, “Do you see that baseball cap floating away from the house, then back again?”
Mrs. Boudreaux said, “Oh yes, that’s my husband. I told him he was going to cut the grass today come Hell or high water!”
