TWO hurricanes slammed into Louisiana in 2005: Katrina and Rita. Also a bayou is never a marshy lake. It may flow into a marshy lake or swamp or it may flow through a wetland, but it is a small, slow-moving, muddy river.

Some bayous are marshy lakes, but they started out as tidal rivers and turned to lakes through erosion. They just never changed the name. Kinda like how Lake Borgne is a bay, not a lake. You can see that a lot in St. Bernard and Plaquemines.

Tabasco is not a brand, it's a variety. McIlhenny, for example, is a brand.

It's definitely a brand. It may also be a variety, but most people that live in Louisiana would refer to it as the brand. If you were to ask for Tabasco Sauce at a restaurant, they may reply that they don't carry it, but that they carry Crystal (Or Louisiana) hot sauce instead.

Seconded. I tried McIlhenny first, then Tabasco.

Can you possibly accept Catrina? They're basically two ways to spell the same name...

I wouldn't have thought so, no. The hurricanes are basically named in alphabetical order, so the fact it began with 'K' was significant.

Born in Louisiana but grew up out west, I didn't discover the muffaletta till I was 35. That's some good stuff.

A Bayou, is actually a river that flows in both directions depending upon outside factors such as weather and tides. It does not have to be marshy, and it can move swiftly, slowly, or stand still at different times. Many bayous in Louisiana (and elsewhere in the world) look like rivers, and have no marsh grasses, Cypress trees, etc. in them. They may pass through swamps or marshes.

Not necessarily. Creole in Louisiana can indicate and include Spanish ancestry as well as French. Cajun is exclusively French.

I was gonna type "bog" for the bayou question. Right after I typed B I reached for the O, but accidently pressed P instead. I got the question above it.
