Ugh. I can imagine the mess. Had I been a resident out there, I'd probably just be grumbling about all the extra work I have to do once the storm has passed... Neutral

With the steady wind from the east, I can't use my window fan. Mad
Rats, I guess I'm goin' back out to smoke in the wind. tongue

We desperately need the rain in Arkieland, and it looks like my area will be just to the East of the center as it passes through, so we'll get the most rain/wind of the storm. Local farmers are frantically trying to pull in the crops that are ready in anticipation of flooding and wind damage. I've emptied all four rain-barrels (well, cleaned them out, they've been bone dry for weeks now!) so should have a good supply for my potted plants for a few weeks.

I know half my student's won't show up Thursday PM, using the impending "flood of biblical proportions predicted" as an excuse, but I'll be at work.

Don't let them full ya Natch, I live damn near the beach on the Mississippi / Louisiana border and I have ridden out thunder storms more fearsome. The storm surge has caused a little grief for people right on the water but their houses are all raised any way so no harm for most part around my stomping grounds. Be glad to hear how the rest of you guys are doing.

Well, my wife has been without power since 10:40 last night (CT), and while the gusts have caused some debris problems, the rain and constant wind haven't been a problem for her yet. Hopefully she'll power back soon after the wind dies down tonight or tomorrow....

On the positive side, she ate up her ice cream stash for breakfast, so it wouldn't melt Very Happy

Plenty of crap to clean up and
there's still a long way to go.

No

Daughter ended up staying in Metarie with the boyfriends folks. They lost power last night till just after noon today. I guess she rode out her 1st hurricane.

She's lucky; my wife, also in Metairie, is still without power. It could be spotty as they rebuild the grid (based on prior experience)

It wouldn't have been too bad if it had just moved through like a "normal" hurricane.
The damn thing just won't go away. The center of circulation is sittin' right over me.
There's no more eye. It really isn't even that windy, but the rain is incessant.

Yeah, this is sure a 'lazy' storm!

We appreciate you hanging on to the rain a bit longer. We thought we were going to be rained out today.

I live right on the edge of Mobile Bay and planned for quite a show, but all we got is a LOT of rain and a little wind. There were a couple of tornados in the area, but nothing too close. I didn't even lose power. I guess it basically missed us. I was hoping for a "little" more show, but I'll take being disappointed over having to replace my house or something.

I hope the rest of you stay safe.

Was watchin' the local NOLA news on DirecTV at a friend's house last night before a baseball game, kind of funny in a way, everyone just seemed wet and pissed off, like a bunch of wet cats. Laughing

As usual, stay safe, and keep your 'bacca dry. Cool

Wife's power is still off; hopefully they'll get it on soon!

I have a heck of a mess to clean up in my yard,
but the power is back and I don't see any damage.

Yeah, on Monday. It'll be much easier to clean up.
I can clean up leaves and small stuff with a
sweeper I tow behind the tractor, once the
ground firms up enough to drive it. Laughing
I got about a foot or so of rain.

Ya there is tree tartar every where. I made out through the power outrage with a couple bowls of dunhill london mixture in my mm legend. I think I'll be having nightmares. In all reality I hope there is no big damage to person or property and wish well to all. I faired a ok.

The power came on in the NO apartment about 70 minutes ago -- 44 hours without power is certainly no fun but things could have been worse!

I just imagine what a foot of rain would do to this area...I think what little is around would wash away...which wouldn't be entirely bad... Laughing Sun Valley might float...

Mine was out for about 26 hours and I have a generator.
It was out for a week for Gustav and then I was out of
power for an additional three days because they took
my meter off (because I had a generator) and they
forgot to come back and replace it. Boy was I pissed!

Of course for Katrina the power went out and it never came back on. Mad
