I'm getting ready with water, charcoal, and other essentials. I'm high enough not to get flooded, but this is the first big one we may get on the Mississippi coast since Katrina. She took everything from us, I'm hoping all I will deal with is a little rain.

Like to know how you other southerners are faring. Question

Yup, it's on the way.
I hope I get the grass cut before the leaves and branches fly.

Me? no, but since my wife is still in NO, well, I hope the track doesn't keep drifting west! The most likely projected 'strike area' has already moved from east of Pensacola Friday to between Mobile and Biloxi the last I checked it....

Hey, send it past Nevada, we're drier than a nun's [habit] over here. Laughing

Hope you all will be alright.

Cool

It appears Alabama will be on the wet side of the storm. Having lived through drier summers, I will not complain about the extra rain we are getting this year. We really cannot relate with the water shortages out west. Apocalyptic shortage of fresh water? Not Here!!!

*Note*
Mobile, Alabama, actually topped a new list of soggiest cities in the 48 contiguous states, with more than 5 feet of rainfall annually, according to a study conducted by San Francisco-based WeatherBill, Inc.

Stay safe you guys in harms way.

My youngest lives in downtown New Orleans. I just spoke to her. She is moving some things to a friends house over on the North Shore and says she'll be safe there. She is a kindergarten teacher and suspects her school will be closed until Wednesday. Mom and Dad are a little worried, but she doesn't seem fazed.......

The other daughter just moved to Orlando, where it is just a tropical storm.

At the moment it looks like it's project to come in on the Louisiana/Mississippi border. It could keep tracking west though....

I hope you guys in the path of it have no trouble, it sounds like it might be time to batten down the hatches and stay home.

That's the plan. Tomorrow, I'll try to get the grass cut
and fill a dozen 5 gal gas cans for the generator.

Dang -- half the models have it going just east of NO, half just west -- no easy direction to run towards. If it hits NO as a fast-moving tropical storm, it can be a pain but no more than that. With hurricane force winds, esp cat 2+, you can never be certain what will hold up. And any system in NO can dump amazing amounts of rain -- one 'regular' storm in May, 1995, dumped 25+ inches in 6 hours, more rain than Katrina. And, of course, with any such system, you have to hope the levees hold!

Good luck to everyone in the path

I'm in Fairhope Al, right at the very southern part of the state, on the water. It's headed right for us, so we're definitely going to see some action.

When I lived in Houston, we had to evacuate from Katrina and Rita, receiving some damage from both. This isn't a Cat 5, so we're going to try to stay put and see what happens. My biggest concern is my 150 year old pecan tree that's only about 30 feet from my house. It's just asking to be blown down. I've got to get the trampoline roped down and everything pulled out of the yard. I "SHOULD" be boarding up, but we're just not ready for it.

The wind is already picking up here a tad, and the temp is only 77 which is low.

We'll see!!!

Daughters school is indeed closed. She is securing her room and apartment today, then heading to a friends family compound on high ground on the North Shore to ride her out. This is her first hurricane.

For those of you that might head out, take care of you and your family first, but do a brief check in here from-time-to-time so we know you're all doing okay. Kind of makes a few of us nervous when we go a week without seeing the regulars.

Casual lurkers might think we're weird, but yeah, we really do care! Laughing

It seems as if this storm is going to be more irritating than destructive *fingers crossed*.

Cool

Hey, that sounds like fun!
It's only a Cat 1 anyway. Laughing


(on second thought, it would be too hard to smoke.) Mad

This thread should turn into a picture thread of some of you tough guys sitting in/on your respective smoking areas with pipe in hand, slickers and muck boots duct-taped down, and welcoming the storm. Laughing

I'm just glad I got my grass cut.
Makes it a lot easier to clean up the tree salad. Laughing
