We are just far enough west at this point to be ok, maybe, as long as it does not turn west at all.

It's actually quite boring...intense, but boring. I've stayed through seven now and it seems like they will never end. It's the aftermath that separates the men from the boys.

True story, I road out Katrina with my brother n law on a shrimpboat out of chalmette lousianna. When we got to shore in chalmette, it was about 3/4 gone. He quit shrimping and started driving trucks and became a drug addict.

This was about a year after I retired from the military

What a F-N pusta !

We’ll have to see. There’s lots of area for the surge to dissipate before hitting me and if it does slam Morgan City the seawall will take the brunt. All the trees close to me are big live oaks and big 2nd growth cypress, like 3’ and larger at the stump, and both weather the winds well.

You gotta know these things will happen and know it before you drive the first nail or spend the first $ enjoying these beautiful places.

I’m really worried about that Ole Boy and he’s not sitting on pilings. I left him the key to my camp if he’s hammered too hard.

The only other folks staying and it’s quite a few, are up high on pilings and,,,,,they’re preparing and planning their ‘Hurricane Parties ‘, wouldn’t you know.

You folks watch out for those tornadoes spinning off. I’m thinking that you are about to get real busy being a first responder.

My Brother N Law is dumber than Forrest Gump and I didn’t have an axe to grind with God. He didn’t sell da boat, just left it.

11:00pm Eastern time update has it making landfall another 20 or so miles to the east of the previous forecast and heading more northerly as opposed to NW.

At least I will sleep well tonight. Will see what tomorrow brings.

Coonasses dont really give narry a [bleep] about either the kung flu, blm, hurricanes. Its the Democrats in new orleans that have issues. A coonass is a republican. The only thing a coonass is worried about is the game warden…. and if they are kin you can scratch that off the list too.

Mike, if the storm goes in around Golden Meadow, that will help you, but you still better keep an eye on it.

Paul, looks like you're in the bullseye. Have you made up your mind to ride it out or leave?

I’ve only experienced them as weak tropical storms after they came inland.

The first thing different as you get into the outskirts is the steady breeze that doesn’t quit, like what you would get from an electric fan but everywhere. It feels distinct and ominous, heralding the approach of the storm. What you are experiencing is the outer edge of the humongous mass of air rotating around the eye. Air has mass and momentum to a degree most folks don’t realize.

Up above 100% overcast with the whole sky moving in unison, if you can see far enough you can make out the sky is moving in an arc relative to wherever the eye is The rain is heavy and is the warmest rain you ever felt.

All that air that rose in the hurricane has to come down, an it does, beyond the edges of the storm, becoming warm and dry as it descends with a chinook effect, if East Texas is getting hammered San Antonio can be unusually hot and dry.

One time there was a tropical storm passing to the west, it was clear and sunny where I was but on the western horizon you could see a mass of clouds all in motion. Basically, if you’ve seen the satellite images of a storm rotating around an eye, from the ground it looks like you would expect it to.

To add to what Birdie said. There is an eerie feeling that cant be described. Birds disappear, cattle will stop feeding and herd up at the barn or in the woods, and all this a before the storms hits, a day or two earlier. The sky takes on a strange glow, before the complete cloud cover.

It's different!

My sister in N. O. thought that this one was being underestimated when I spoke with her yesterday morning. It looks like you and she were closer to the mark than the "experts." My cousin the family bugout planner goofed, though. On Thursday she booked rooms in Houston. She probably had 4 other backup plans by yesterday afternoon.
