Eh, I should be fine. I'm a fair bit eastward of projected landfall areas, and if the winds don't get too bad I'm in a relatively decent place to be so far as flooding is concerned. Close enough it's going to be a very rainy next few days and I might be sorta' stuck at home, but everything so far suggests my immediate area is going to be outside the main impact regions.

Just definitely hoping it doesn't spike up again just before landfall, and that the rains aren't as bad as they're thinking in the more flood prone areas. Louisiana like just got hammered by a cat 4, that general area seriously doesn't need another heavy storm hit this soon.

'Course, if it does spike up hard in the next handful of hours and does some kind of hard lurch eastward well fuck me I guess. Louisiana doesn't need the hit but I'm legit unsure the county I'm in continues to function at all if it takes a heavy storm to the chin again anytime in the next few years. We're still picking shit up from the 2018 cat 5 over here :-\

I thought I was in the 'things that make you laugh' thread. I was very concerned.

Hurricane Sally is definitely the name of a very raunchy old west comedienne

Yeah... I'm like 2-3 hours east or something like that from landfall area and, well. It started meaningfully raining yesterday around 11-ish am. It's currently 7 in the morning the next day and the rain has not stopped. At all. And I'm way away from the main impact areas. Southern alabama/west florida looks to be getting a harvey, rain wise :-\

It's been a rough 40 hours with Sally. Definitely not the worst I've been through, but it's close. Everything soaked and flooded, trees falling over I never expected to fall from a "puny" category 2. Thanks to the soft ground and waterlogged wood. Storm surge close to what I saw back during Ivan.

Most of the area is without power.

It's been a bad one. All I can really say, and I think my specific area got off easier than some.

Why only 21? Don't the alphabet have 28 letters?

Only 26 in English, where letters with diacritics are not counted separately.

So, uh. I don't even know what it is anymore, maybe just another tropical storm? Slated to hit east Texas in a couple days in any case, probably sit around dumping water everywhere as it meanders back up... into Louisiana. Poor goddamn Louisiana. Season has not been kind to the bayou this time around :-\

Bump to inform everyone that tropical storm Paulette is now on its way westward. Fortunately (?) just forming on the east side of the atlantic, but still.

... and if you're paying attention, that might seem odd when we're into the greek alphabet for naming storms. Well, that's because this one is Paulette, from earlier in the year, having made a trip across the atlantic, done the storm thing, rotated up and around, went back across the atlantic without quite breaking up entirely, and has now worked its way up back to tropical storm strength and is starting its third trip across the atlantic.

The NOAA has officially called it Zombie Paulette, because in year 2020 hurricane necromancy is apparently a thing.
