    There are still mountains of debris here. I'm pet sitting this weekend & drove thru areas where the some of the worst of the flooding occured from Harvey hit. Dickinson just goes under every time even a tropical storm comes thru. There is a huge, long section of bayou running thru it, & between rain & storm surge it takes a beating. That is one area that I cannot see owning any property in. There were many pictures online showing people in every kind of boats you can imagine going up & down the main street rescuing people out of the neighborhoods. There were a lot of fan boats. This is the 4th time I've been thru there since Harvey & the businesses along the main street are starting to reopen for a little while most days. But the power is up & down because they have to shut down for some of the construction & repairs to infrastructure. They'll mostly rebuild. Some will just walk away. I can't imagine NOLA right now. And Houston will be hard put to take the evacuees this time. Hotel rooms are at a premium right now, with all the out of town construction people & our own evacuees. I seriously hope this one just sputters out. Florida & TX both are stormed out. This is as bad as The 3 years after Katrina. Storm after storm.

    My thoughts are with all that have been or might be impacted by all these destructive weather systems this season.

    Weather Underground has a great resource for following weather across the country. It is interactive and you can toggle on/off most anything weather related. WunderMap® | Interactive Weather Map and Radar

    I was just outside locking up the gate and noted all the piles of tree debris on the county easement
    up and down the block at every other house. It's been raining a lot so the plant matter is starting to rot or dry out and blow all over the place. It's starting to smell "earthy"..
    Some folks are tired of waiting for the county and taking truckloads to the dump but the lines at the dump are
    worse than they were at gas stations before the storm.

    MS Gulf Coast/NOLA
    Aw thanks guys:wub:...I'll be fine...I actually split my time between NOLA and Gulfport on the MS Coast, which is where I am right now...and where they are predicting it to come ashore...the good thing is it should only be a Cat 1 by the time it hits here, so for us, it will just be more of an annoyance with power and satellite outages...my house has never flooded, not even in Katrina, so just hoping for the best and that it stays moving quickly and gets on out of here. ;)

    Since at least 2005, we all know that much of New Orleans is below sea level, right?

    So what do you do when a storm dumps lots of water on the city?
    Well, obviously you have to pump it out..
    But city officials are wondering whether the pumps will actually work!
    Link: Nate aims at New Orleans: Will pumps to drain the city work?

    Now check out the name of the guy in charge:
    "The team is headed by veteran emergency expert Paul Rainwater." :lol:

    And now Nate, just 40 miles to the west of my place in Concord, tornados touch down. OK for the record enough is enough, Mother Nature get a grip this is getting old.
