Expected to be the first Category 3 hurricane to hit the US mainland in 12 years.

I've been underneath a storm of that magnitude, and it is no fun.  Cat 1 wouldn't get us off the sofa.  Two was meh.  3 and up were attention getters.  Lots of trees down, loss of power, some flooding, and my personal favorite - the marina where my boat was stored damaged badly, and the boat from the wet slip next door to mine sitting on my bow because that moron didn't tie his boat up, so it floated over my way on the 12 foot surge.

Took us about 2 days of chain saws to clear a path to our neighborhood for emergency and private vehicles.  We had private roads in our HOA - nobody was coming to help us, so me and another guy did it.

Bad stuff - take care folks.

I've been through 2 3s, a 2 a couple of 1s. Been stocking groceries all morning and collecting gasoline for generators. That's after an all nighter with my best friend from high school and Marine Corps. Large quantities of Lone Star and Jim Beam. I needed a night away from all the women in my family and it was great

This storm is pretty hyped up. Water, batteries Generators and related accessories sold out at the big box stores. I installed a gen set for a customer this morning. He will probably flood before he loses power. POC is going to get trashed. Friend of mine just bought a bay mansion in the 2 million range and an 800 acre ranch nearby. Pick up the pieces next week. Victoria, Wharton and Houston will get some significant flooding if the eastward turn occurs. Oh well, I have been through lots of these storms. I have a gen set, 30 gallons of gas, 200 gallons of diesel and a few bottles of propane. Hunker down, and we will clean this mess up next weekend. It is what it is

I've worked POC quite a bit.  The phone infrastructure down there is 1960-1970 vintage, aircore cable and Class 8 and 9 skinny poles.  We always used to joke this place needed a hurricane so we can get it all replaced and it's going to dead on nail POC.

There are T-1 circuits down there feeding Banks, offices and such and the lines we maintain for the Coast Guard is fed through cable as old as most of us here

Oh man, thoughts and prayers.  In all of my hurricanes, I've never been caught in that kid of flooding.

When big storms hit Baton Rouge a few years back, a good friend of mine pulled his neighbor's body out of the water.  Sadly, there will probably be a lot of that.

Hope you guys are safe, now and in the aftermath.
