    Or the price of living 200-300 miles inland from any coast U.S.A I spose as Michael made Ga. as a cat 2. Glad you're safe Lyle.

    I about had a tree fall on me, but yeah didn't cut off any fingers or toes working with the chainsaw so that's good.


    Crazy thing here in NC is the folks who have beachfront property whine about the insurance they have to pay and they want the landlocked portion of the state to flip the bill for their extravagant lot locations and sometimes the big baller ass houses they have.....so yeah I feel for the folks who lose their belongings and stuff, but not enough to want to fucking pay for it because I'm not brazen enough to build a home on the Outer Banks which (for those of you who don't know) are basically "Sand dune islands" which take the brunt of the blow for the hurricanes which make landfall in NC....which isn't so much applicable for Michael but it is for Florence. Even inland the storm surge can be extremely bad as PCB and Mexico Beach found out.

    Waiting on this fumble footed A hole 'Danny' to decide where he wants to touch down. Glorified rain storm likely but that Mississippi river is looking fierce. Record high. The levees should hold, bigger threat are runaway barges acting as torpedoes etc. And running out of rum.

    Danny or Barry? Either way... what a complete downer to have yet another wet storm aiming at the Louisiana/ New Orleans area. Gotta feel for those poor folks in the Big Easy. Having a city below sea level certainly doesn't help matters.

    Pretty wide spread street flooding in the City itself and slow moving rain bands but river topped off near 17-18 feet rather than predicted 20+. What so many outsiders don't realize is that the City has an East and a West bank. Still under flash flood warning but standard. Some over topping in Plaquemines and minor breeches in low lying areas but all in all it was a 'dry run' for bigger storms.

    Barry was just a Nerf dart brother . If not for the river slapping the levee top we may have slept right through it. Going to be a long season though..head on a swivel along the coasts and in PR yourself.
