Mardi Gras they -- Louisiana in every weekend get together to -- seafood with their families they see Louisiana -- haven't block parties in street parties and any excuse to have a parade we have a parade and they think that's lazy because we're not work on is our right and then they come here and they lived here for awhile. And they realize now that apparently it's it's that we prefer. To have. On yeah. We'd prefer to live life to its fullest even if it means we have a little less money to -- because we have close knit. Tight knit families of people from other places who see their families want to twice a year. They see -- on Christmas. And they seem for some other amount that would not cut it here here I most families and now they see each other if not every day every week. And used it to it's another and another example of power horribly misinterpreted and of course all of these millions of people would come here to visit. -- so they can be sad. Right -- there are gonna go to Louisiana that the status very Castro wannabe candidates today that clinic there are going to be sent not for the great food not for the great people not for the great celebrations that for the great -- not for the great -- and not for the great landscapes that for the I go on and on non and Americans were so -- All right thank you David talking about twenty minutes -- -- Christa Miller will join the discussion with reaction from lieutenant governor and the Iranians.

Playing a guy down again and we're misinterpret -- -- -- it don't get -- and I like not be an act like people don't get it is -- -- don't want. Got it appeared to understand. And even. Party with a that people -- -- that's true that's just me -- people who wanna say I don't understand you know act that would you know annual understand -- don't you know -- can get it out to get it you know talk. Proudly refer to myself frequently is a damn Yankee. You know the difference for any Yankee unit in -- I dull but I held damn Yankee comes here and -- hi I have lived more of my life now in the south than in the north because once I moved to the south I realized. That this is where I want him but then. Governor -- -- yeah I have to call yourself a standing are well hi I am I've been here long enough to know that. When it rains here sometimes it rains hard in that may happen today. Yeah it it may in it would likely be this after nearly insane really. Between about 3:8 PM probably the best time is decent storms and everything I've been looking at this morning really queen wore to the North Shore and south Philly not to say we couldn't get some storms south of the lake. But I think the more likely area would be southwestern Mississippi and north of -- onto trains so you know Washington -- -- -- areas and -- we can policies some rain -- three things that nasty stuff do you like -- we see some of those stronger storms -- think -- will be north of I ten and I -- but. All of a thunderous flight risk for severe weather today so that's important you know kind of -- weather alert this afternoon pick up the kids from school maybe heading home from work yourself. To -- to not keep an eye on things follow me on Twitter I'll become a tweet throughout daylight you know happy and what's happening meeting. I'm. Happy. Well maybe not to much if you let me tell the truth tell it like it is that whether that's -- out in all this is associated with the front yeah it's gonna impact or whether for a few days. Eating at Hewlett the front actually you know lay over at Louisiana tomorrow and so. Even rain in the forecast for Friday and Friday evening because as the front sits there kind of acts like a little highway. In less people impulse that kind of right right along highway and if it's parked right over us that means impulses right right over us system right around Friday Friday night even. Through first -- Saturday morning. All right so then you think you know we do get Saturday afternoon maybe Sunday and that too much trouble. I'm hoping that Saturday afternoon -- evening will be fairly dry and same for Sunday morning of course at the rock and roll -- on Sunday morning and I think that it will be okay we get some showers coming and but it looks like it will be the second half of Sunday so I'm still optimistic for Saturday night and Sunday morning the second half of Saturday looks back. And the first half of Sunday and I've been waiting all morning because asked me yesterday. If it was going to be breezy and -- that yes but that today would be even windier and back to a wind advisory. Has been issued for the National Weather Service but we know it's not official. Bride until we issue the official skirt alert and you arguing that. Today we are under start alerts. Let's doing. The. Quarter sure yeah. -- sure we'll. See you -- -- hear -- -- and we're here.

You should be alert that women wearing skirts may have that happened to them just just protect yourself lately. Aaron -- it's meteorologist Laura but now speaking of exposing yours now. Wow I don't know if you heard this story that -- W Austin roads and sharing with us this morning but a surprisingly. Large number of people. Have reportedly been the victims. Of an ex boyfriend or girlfriend or ex spouse. After the relationship breaks out threatening to. Host there well pictures perhaps they took private moments or videos they shot in private moment to the Internet. Yeah go ahead yes -- your deepen our romantic relationship it may never occurred to you to be careful about -- well that. Pictures and videos even if it's in the throes of passion but a new study. Found by McAfee just released from their 2013 love relationship big -- talent technology survey. Finds that after our break up many people are threatened with revenge. That those pictures can be posted as many as one in five how. -- been threatened this way you really see -- significant others made up when I got that and Louisiana state police say they investigate this kind of stuff all the time and say if it's based on extortion. Maybe even had people demand money they have got that new video view like dot I'm gonna posted. Ex boyfriend ex girlfriend if you don't give money and they say that the crime it's a posting this stuff. For other reasons and also via crimes so the advice from the state police maybe don't make that passionate picture or video with your lover yeah. Because the relationship may well land then it could get an act announced that your lover knows your passwords to your accounts. Your financial accounts here. You know you're all of your county FaceBook email. Wanted him after you break up because a good idea when there and -- -- Yeah that's out change all of that -- -- and the pictures of us but yeah I don't let him take him I mean a lot of people they -- the video to take pictures together but its sister and badly. Hopefully it'll break up but it's in that. Are right about now alignment right Eyewitness News forecast a sport -- next. City's -- -- when people died days upgrades for dogs in marriages.

And 29 inch vertical leap as he attempts his NFL comeback. JaMarcus Russell is planning a pro -- type of work out at some point this all season. Today a four on sports talk would you want the saints the draft to -- Matthew and if so which round I'd Steve Geller -- early morning look at sports. I want your answer that question at first I promised when he feminists going to ask you this you said you'd think the hornets if they hand should trade away Eric Gordon. Do you think they will act -- tomorrow morning this time will Eric Gordon's still be -- Eric Gordon wheels mobile tomorrow I believe just because of the fact that the hornets will not get enough value on the return right now. Just because a stock is low bigotry right secondly Iran Matthew. Should say it's ticket chance one person tax mediate 78 and he says I grant the box with the saints desperately need -- Another says no no no no no no no no no no no. Not a chance in -- now. -- -- -- at the center estimates they can't. I would say if he's around fifth or sixth round I would take -- chance because like that first Texas said.
