It’s not good, decided to stay and ride this thing out, Son is at BC and daughter is up at LSU, so it’s just the wife and I. House is boarded up and we have a generator for after it passes, as we will no doubt lose power. But seeing the forecasted 140 mph winds has me concerned with the roof. Thanks for the prayers, it’s gonna be a hell of a next 12-24 hours!
Well everyone, we made it. Scariest thing I’ve been through, lost power Sunday about 4:30, not sure when we’ll get it back. We have a portable generator but the lack of gasoline to refill is a major problem, as are the temps in the 90s with 100% humidity. Storm made landfall as a Cat 4, was a Cat 3 when it passed us, having 100+ winds for about three hours. Almost 100% of people in southeast Louisiana were without power until today, when maybe 10% have been restored. Finally got internet on cell phone today, hopefully I can find a way to watch some BC, LSU and some Saints football this weekend. Also can’t wait to be in Alumni for the Mizzou game!
