Looks like we will get the brunt of this. It'll be a busy day getting ready for Nate tomorrow. Hopefully all for nought.
As you can see in this image, the Mississippi Sound isn't too far in the distance.
Hope it brings you just enough rain, a cooling breeze and then gets the heck on out of your area.
I'm ready to move on back West and take my chances with tornadoes, mesquite, huisatche, juniper and prickly pear.
Just started raining here. I planted ryegrass this past week. Hopefully it won't be washed out in the Gulf. The surge is the concern for me. Katrina put just enough water in my house to wet the carpet. I'm sure we won't have that problem this time but could still cause problems. Cows are on highest ground with hay, boats are secured in Bayou La Batre, generator is at warehouse. Not much else to do wait and see.
Not that high here yet. Maybe 2ft above a normal high tide. Wind is still ENE. When it pulls out of South we will get some water but I don't think we'll get 9 ft like they are predicting. Media seems to be exaggerating but, we will see.
