    I'm in Algiers. I expect the river to over top the levee a bit down river from me. I don't expect I'll flood, but one really never knows until it's over.

    I really don't see many rain bands wrapped around this system. That could change.


    So far the major effect for me, is a break for my air conditioner. It's actually cycled off several times yesterday. It's quite pleasant outside right now, with temps in the lower eighties and a nice breeze.

    Work as usual but it seems like we may be closing early. Stocked up on enough adult beverages to get me through the weekend.

    Watch Margaret Orr talk as if it is the end of the world and see all the people new to the city act as if they should evacuate because they heard from somebody who knows somebody who heard from somebody that works at the army Corp of engineers who said that they are preparing for the worst case scenario because they know something. I hope it is nothing and it probably will be nothing but come on. I will go to work as usual and everybody else I know will have their places close up and the kids will have their camps or schools closed and the weather will be beautiful. Of course I thought that with Katrina and lost my house so I might be completely wrong. Let’s just hope it turns out to be nothing.

    And, that person who they heard something from is usually not from anywhere near here. I just want the traffic lights to work. I kid you not but I saw about 4 close calls with assholes just blowing through an intersection with the light out. Hey dummy! Didn’t you notice the 10 other cars all stopped around you?!

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Working days this weekend. I don't expect much effect up here in the AP unless it hangs out offshore too long. Weather gurus saying there is actually a small window of growth opportunity tomorrow. Waiting and see. After 2016, any rain event gives me jitters but even the highest rain gage forecast are still half what 2016 dumped. Other than that, I'm just hoping power don't go out. Lol

    Here's to hoping everyone makes it through this without any issues. Best case scenario would be for it to pick up speed once it lands and move the hell out of here. I'd certainly be good with that.

    I live in Watson area. My immediate area did not flood in 2016, so I don't expect any water impact. I went to the local Walmart yesterday to pick up a Rx for wife, and noted that the panic shoppers were already out in force -- there was not a single loaf of bread on the shelves! Probably today I will start my generator and run it for a while (just in case). DEMCO has been really aggressive in the past months at cutting trees back around here, so perhaps we might not even lose power.

    We've had so much rain up in this corner of the state that I refer to it as harvesting the seaweed! I need a mower with pontoons.

    We are stupid late getting summer food plots in so we will be doing that and hoping the rain comes after we are all loaded up and headed back southbound.
