It's gonna be a loooong night.
    Again booze is useful to pass the time...you can get drunk, you can clean wounds, you can help start a fire (if you're drinking the right stuff).


    Stay safe bud and let the Saddo Red Cross know if you guys need a care package sent...I am sure we could crowdfund something for you if needed.

    Do you know why hurricanes are always named after women?

    Because when they come they are wet and wild, but when they leave they take your house and car.

    For the record Nate can kiss me arse. I had to go to 3 different stores yesterday just to find a bottle of Captains! Looks like landfall as Cat. 2 over the next twelve hours but as of now we're stocked up and hunkered down and still have power. Generator went to shat last week and haven't had time to get a new one so we'll see. Cannot get over the speed at 26mph and one of the fastest moving hurricanes I can remembers. N.O will get hit and surely Biloxi will take it on the chin also. Fast moving is a good thing! So hurricane party it is

    Sounds insane! You seem experienced in managing these extreme weathers.

    Haven't stayed for one in about 6 yrs and it crept up on us. Shouldn't be a big deal all things considered as long as levees hold firm and city pumps are working. Though a nail being hammered would also qualify as 'experienced' .

    That was the most overblown hurricane I've ever sat in if I'm honest. Eastern jog occurred at mouth of the Mississippi and over here we literally had maybe 45 minutes of rain and minor wind gusts. Still cannot get over the Mayor issuing a 6pm curfew prior to any landfall whatsoever. I fully understand precaution but some of this City acts like a flinchy dog when systems form. You simply cannot amp up to that level at the sight of each and every minor storm, just not healthy and it burns you out. Inland tornadoes biggest threat off these types.

    We'll dub it a Home Depot cheapo special . Champion 3550 and owner at work picked up a couple for upcoming Osha inspection so took one home after Irma as a loner. Decent enough for minor needs and nighttime power up if power out, fans, fridge, lamp etc. but didn't actually use outright. Think we're having problems with carb compliance or some shit as he went cheap. Think will swap out, wheel kit and longer run before the seasons over. If I were you and goes without saying just spend the money if you get one. It's a long term investment on the back end depending on what you're looking to run, family etc and pinching pennies for such a thing not the way to go.

    Glad you are safe which is the main thing.

    It looked awful on the news.

    Now what the generator that you have? 😀

    They always look worse with the massive doppler's and neon tracks . I always tell local friends losing their mental shat to basically shut off the news 3,2 days out. Just track it yourself for much clearer picture and far less stress. With hurricanes you either move out of the way or prepare to hunker down in place, nothing else.

    That happens with snow and ice here in NC.....bread, milk, & eggs are the purchases of the day (IDK people make French Toast I guess ) and the driving....the driving is bad anyway but when it's snow and ice, holy shit. Every jackoff with 4 wheel drive thinks they can just peel out and drive like assholes (half of those I think are halfbacks...a halfback being a Yankee retiree who moved to Florida found it was too hot and moved half way back up the Eastern seaboard.).

    In New Orleans a Category 1 could still be dangerous, they're below sea level, a storm surge floods N.O. hell a good sized Thunderstorm could do that a hurricane most definitely. Typically a Category 1 storm won't be anything but a glorified thunderstorm, the worst thing it could do is spawn a series of large tornadoes.


    The key is to know your topography, know how water drains in your general area, know where the water goes, know how much water represents a problem, and also know about what wind damage means for you....will a tree or two being down block you in or out of your neighborhood? Also if you're on the oceanfront/ocean adjacent, is the storm making landfall at high or low tide because that will effect storm surge.


    Also have water, a generator, food, something for warmth, a radio, first aid, and a phone (and booze) at the ready.
