 Good Morning NOLA!  Can you believe our high today is seventy?  Lots of sun in the forecast for the next week and warmer daytime temperatures.  It should be a beautiful week with no rain in the forecast until a week from now.  If this kind of weather holds through Mardi Gras, look out Crescent City.  I’m going to have to dig up some t-shirts and clothes more suited to this spring like weather.  My heavy sweaters and boot won’t work right now.  Even in jeans and light weight button up shirt yesterday I was a little warm.  Oh well, you know how it goes do don’t pack away the winter stuff just yet.  I said yesterday I was going back to the flip flops so I guess a pedi  is on the agenda for today.  I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day and that today is no different.  Letting people know how much you love them doesn’t have to be relagated to one day a year.  As Lenny would say “Let Love rule!”  Have a great day and I’ll see you in NOLA!

How long would it take a freighter or cargo ship to travel from New Orleans, Louisiana to Venice, Italy?

I am a fiction writer and my ususal research sources have failed me on this occasion. I’m just looking for a ballpark estimate from New Orleans to Venice with maybe one refueling stop if necessary.

It depends entirely on how fast the ship can travel. A ship that travels at 20 knots covers about 500 miles per day, and would make it from New Orleans to Venice in about 14 days. A ship moving at 10 knots would take twice the time. And so on.

Note that a realistic "refueling stop" would be the port of Algeciras, in southern Spain. That would be about 9 days out from New Orleans at 20 knots. When passenger liners traveled between the Med and NY they would stop at Algeciras before starting the trans-Atlantic "speed run".

Remember that it takes a ship 8 to 12 hours to travel from New Orleans to the mouth of the Mississippi. A "pilot" is required for that trip: http://www.crescentpilots.com/

Good Morning NOLA!  TGIF!  We are starting off our day with some clouds but the sunwill be out a little later today.  Spring like highs are still around with our’s for today being seventy five.  The low tonight will drop into the fifties again so we are looking around fifty -four degrees.  Another day for me on the set of Looper in the CBD. It was actually quite nice walking over to set  from the French Quarter in the morning. It was warm yesterday but the breeze saved the day.  Looks like we will have more of the same today with the winds five to ten miles per hour according to the forecast. This is suppose to take place in the fall or winter so I was slightly overdressed for the forecast.  Great weather up ahead for the weekend.  Parade going shuld not be a problem.  There is a possiblity of some showers on Monday but the weekend looks clear.  Have a fabulous Friday!

I’ll see you in NOLA!
