Yet Another? Hurricane Nate

I can't believe we have another one this season - it's almost Hurricane Thanksgiving Day! Nate now expected to make landfall as a Cat 2, moving fast. Friends down here from Manhattan for the Ponderosa Stomp this weekend are wide-eyed and extra drunk, even for jaded New Yorkers. One texted me asking where to buy galoshes, lol. We call them shrimp boots. Praying the pumps are working and/or don't go down permanently or we will be critiquing another recovery effort soon.

Thanks y'all. 7pm curfew so my pals will miss tonight's show. I'm staying above the lake right now but the river overflowed here last year and flooded my friend's car, sigh, fingers crossed.

Thanks Penny, it is moving fast so that's good. Car on higher ground just in case. That sucks the worst, then you're really screwed.

We are in pretty good shape with Nate passing east. Now the pumps just need to keep working in the city. Hoping the river behaves up here in Tangipahoa later on this afternoon. It never flooded before last year so who knows.

Why is a thread about hurricanes in the politics and religion section? Is the hurricane a Trump voter or is it involved in some kind of radical Muslim plot to destroy the west?

But in all seriousness, I hope everyone stays safe and that this one passes through without causing much damage.

Oh, they can get political. But thank goodness it wasn't the worst case scenario, although Biloxi doesn't think so. Have a good evening, everybody!

So far is seems it was a relatively minor storm. One thing I remember from one of the hurricanes I was in was how the weatherman warned to not take it lightly that it was a cat 1 or tropical storm....because they can produce tornados and may even be more likely to do so... and flooding can be just a bad!

It weakened to a Tropical storm. Nothing to worry about.
