    I hope everyone coastal is getting out of harms way. I'm 70miles as the crow flies north of the gulf as the crow flies and may still get out if it gets much worse and starts steering a more direct hit.

    Whats your plans???

    We're staying put.
    Ivan and Dennis just took shingles and trees, it can't get too much worse than what Ivan was.

    The hotels are jacking prices up to the North and East anyway.

    Sending the kids and wife north. The 'Burb has $90 worth gas. The propane tanks are full. Lots of ice. If it gets bad or you guys need anything, my cell phone # is 225-803-2188.

    i'm still bunkered in but each minute i'm on the verge of rolling a little more north. ltalessi is 30miles more north of here and has a diesel genset 3kw more like 5k or more and about 100 gal of diesel along with the duece and a half and m715

    the gas satations in central BR are running out of gas, smaller cities outside are already out, walmarts are out of water, ice and canned goods.....

    What they are not out of is angry, panicked people. The dogs and I are here for the duration. Should not be too bad - 20-40mph winds for 6-12 hours and lots of rain. thank goodness for the Burb - I will still be able to get around.

    Wife and kids went north yesterday so I provisioned with beer and hot dogs. :D

    I just got back to Fairhope at work from Florida and am heading home to Mobile in a few. I haven't heard from anyone else yet. At a rest stop some fat azz woman opened her door and the wind caught and banged the side of my new 05 mustang & chipped the paint :angry1: The only thing she said was sorry

    No I did not. I was tired and not thinking straight. I'll just call painless dent removal and get it fixed. :mad:

    I just got off of the phone with Chad (CBBR). He said that he and his family were fine. Of course they're out of power but he sounded in good spirits.

    So now has anyone heard from nverenuff?
