... it was bucketing with rain. We landed safe and went in to collect our bags, only to find they didn't come out on the carousel. Turns out our bags made the original flight that we would have missed from New Orleans to Charlotte. Luckily our bags were at the baggage office waiting for us, only problem was they were drenched with water.

We left Florida this morning and took the scenic route to Louisiana. We arrived in New Orleans about 4:30 PM. Tai and Charlene were about an hour behind us, so after checking in to The Hotel Provincial, we waited for them in the lobby bar. As with every city, we met a nice couple.
