Sucker's big... they're telling the storm-ride-outs the potential surge is not survivable, you're pretty much on your own.

Yep, if the model stays true, they are gonna be slammed... I-10 has been almost a parking lot headed west out of the area...

We've gotten some heavy periodic rain this after noon late.... We ain't even close to NOLA...

Hopefully the billions in infrastructure we poured into down there does its job. This will probably be the first real test of the spillways and flood gates they built outside of the city to handle the surge. But just in case I think I’d move the chain saw up into the attic just in case I gotta cut a new skylight/exit til the chopper swings by to pick me up

It was a “feels like” 101 in Detroit today… miserable…and when it rains … it’s been torrential every time…

And …. Giant Grasshoppers (I haven’t seen since 1977) and tonight … dozens of dragonflies hunting mosquitoes.. (which was pretty cool to watch)… dragonflies are NOT common around here..

Mosquitoes are especially bad … can’t go out side for more than 10 minutes…

something changed
