Is anyone in the wake of Ida?

It looks like it has weakened and hopefull it will weaken more before making landfall. Right now it looks like it's aiming for the MS / AL border. If you live close, are you just preparing for a strong storm or are people going crazy?

  • Thank you.
    We had a TS earlier in the season and it hardly rained. The gas stations are all full and running out of unleaded gas. The guy in front of me filled up his truck and seven red gas containers! I get more nervous watching the people around me than by the actual storms.
    I live in a concrete house, we'll be fine. :)

    I think it was yesterday that it was still projected to be a Cat. 1 when making landfall, but it looks like that has changed too, thankfully.

  • I am. No fun. I filled up the gas tank just now and we have plenty of water. I don't really think it's going to amount to much but people here are freaking out.

  • I hope it's mild for you Jackals. I think people are used to freaking out, but it looks like right now it's just shy of hurricane status. I hope it weakens a lot before making landfall.

  • I live in SE Louisiana and we were until it turned to the East. When people heard a storm coming this way everyone freaked out and started buying out supplies in the stories, crying and telling Katrina stories.

    Jackal_ I agree. I get more nervous and agitated watching the crazy people around me then about that actual storm.

    Luckily, it has downgraded to a TS. Nothing us Southerners can't handle.

    Hope everything fairs out fine!

  • good luck momof. Hopefully it will continue to weaken significantly and there won't be anything to worry about other than finding a place to store batteries until next hurricane season.
