Now a tropical storm. Make you preparations and make sure you have all your canned goods (duh...beer :roll: ). But most of all make sure you are safe from this one. We have a lot of cheering to do come 08/29/19, and we will need all of your voices on that date.

@CityOfNOLA rips Washington Post over Barry coverage:

I’m heading to bed

I think nola is ok
I hope no place gets the 20+ inches possible.

Probably doesn’t need to be said but:

Charge your cell phones fully

Freeze plastic cups of water in case power goes out and you can put the ice in an ice chest


Hopefully you have:
An ice chest
Bottled water
Flashlights
Flashlight batteries

A full tank of gasoline

Best wishes for all.

Just looking at radar, Mobile seems to be getting the brunt of the rain.

After the last few years I am convinced that the sports adage of offense selling seats but defense winning championships—the hurricane Category 1/2/3/4/5 gets the headlines but it’s the overwhelming rain that does the damage. That mess in Houston a couple of years back and end of the world flooding in Vermont from just the remains of a hurricane tells me that after Jim Cantore showboats in front of the flying debris, it’s the 20+ inches of rain with nowhere to go that we should always worry about.

Cool graphics. Water has to go somewhere.

It’s more a question of when not where.

With the lake being so high, the answer is “later”

I just went on my front porch to check out the situation. There are several still unsold/empty lots in my neighborhood from after Katrina. It is really pretty dark with few other lights on around here. Also the birds are no where to be found. Guess they flew somewhere else. So that makes it pretty eerie on my street. Few lights on and no birds chirping. Plus there is currently no rain and very little wind blowing. You'd never think there was any weather situation going on if you didn't know better. :roll:
