  • New storm coming to the gulf.

    Well it looks like this weekend is going to be a wet one. It a bit too early to know for sure but as of now Mobile is in the center of the cone for Nate the new storm coming in from the gulf. They are hoping it will only be a category 1 hurricane or strong tropical storm. For now it looks like we are going to be on the right or bad side of the land fall so whatever size it ends up we get much of the surge and wind. We will start securing things today. Our home is safe from storm surge so we only have to deal with wind. But my wife’s office gets surge water with most storms of any size with a 10 foot + surge so they are working to get all the paper work and equipment up. And we will pray it will not end up being a much stronger storm.

        We're keeping an eye on it, also, Randy. We are inside the Western edge of the cone.

          Yes it has moved west a bit on the models. Looks like New Orleans is in the cross hair now. if it holds to the projections there should not be major damage as a cat 1. As fast as it is moving it may not have time to build any larger. We will not know for sure tell Friday But you realy never know. When Ivan was coming in 2004 it was headed right up Mobile Bay and got just off the coast and turned right going in to Pensacola.

            Bad storm season. As I near retirement, friends ask me if I'm going to move to Florida. Nope. I like the cold and snow more than I like hurricanes. LOL!

                Thoughts are with you Randy. Our neighborhoods are still not cleaned up from Irma but at least we have power. All the contractors that were on standby for clean-up or took contracts for clean-up immediately after Irma hit us, backed out and went south to Miami and the Keys where they paid them three times the going rate.

                  I spent today tying the yard gear down and securing the house. It will mostly be a wind event for us. But my wife spent the day preparing to deal with the storm surge at her office. It is just a block of the top Mobile Bay and it gets wet with anything over a 6 ft surge. Hard to know but we have been thought much bigger stomps here at the house and done fine. However a cat 1 can do some real damage, If you get hit just right.

                    We have gone through a number of earthquakes - wife hates them with a passion - sneak up on you. Gone through 3 or 4 hurricanes and tons of water/damage to our property. The worst was Hugo (though others caused deaths as well) that came in on the West of us. - The Right hand PUNCH is Tough Wind! Mobil would do better if it centered over it and it spilled east and west over them. We lost 2 acres of tall oak trees in a forest area behind the house. Wind over a horse farm was low to the ground and it blew down 100' oaks left and right. Wife would take Hurricane or tornado to the nasty earthquake. The aftershocks last for weeks and you can't get sleep for weeks. Good Luck out there and Randy and all take care. I might have to go to North Carolina myself. Martin

                      In Southern California, we haven't had more than a few drops of rain
                      in over two years! Droughts like these have had, can also be devastating,
                      causing so many Forest Fires.
