She's a temperamental wench, unfortunately. Fingers crossed everyone stays safe.

Well we are likely to get drilled. In the worst storm surge projected area, 7-11ft. Mandatory evacuation underway so I am out of here and headed to north MS to a friends place. So much for my fishing plans....lol.

Well the really good news is that the storm kept shifting east to the point where we are on the west edge now so the N wind is minimizing the surge. All things considered we might have dodged a bullet. Yard and storage might likely still flood but no big deal.

Orange Beach and Pensacola getting hammered and soaked. 30 inches plus of rain in Pensacola and still pouring. Tornados popping off. Pensacola 3-Mile Bridge over bay damaged and downtown flooded. Bad storm and big mess. All my family members and friends safe though, thank goodness.

Here are a couple shots of Orange Beach.

Well I am blessed that it shifted so far east as to not even impact us in Bay Saint Louis. Water didn't even get up on my pad and only a few pieces or wood debris floated into the yard. But so sad for my friends to the east. As my son just said, " how does something packing winds of 100 mph only move 1 mph....my brain just doesn't comprehend that."

Glad you fared well Steve. The rapid intensification and late jog east fooled a lot of folks. Think the lesson of Michael would have been a wake-up call but guess not.
