Well,. I'm just now getting my first band of rain, judging from the radar,.. the rains are moving about 60 mph. I have yet to get any winds.
I put up a new flag (Clean, bright US flag) on the pole and had some good grilled chicken (had to test drive the R2 grill)
Gussie should make landfall about 7-8 am tomorrow, I was told to expect 20+ inches of rain, and south of N.O. they expect storm surges up to 25 feet
I got a recorded message a short tima ago that I am now in a "Mandatory evacuation area". This means I now qualify for FEMA cash (if I apply for it.)and maybe another generator.
20 inches of rain????,.. bahhhhhh,.. 25 foot storm surge?? bahhhhh..
I'm at sea level, how you gonna flood me?? (figure that one out folks).
Looks like after it comes ashore,.. it will go to Ft. Polk and drop some trees at the army base there than go to Dallas.
WWL has one of the better radars locally, but you have to register to use is,.. it is a free site. The wunderground has radar too. just not close in.
