You mean Tampa won't be underwater, drowning all the convention people? I hate to say I told you so. Well that's not entirely true.

This is all my fault

Yesterday, I dug the generator out of the shed, drained the fluids, checked the plug, oiled the cylinder, replaced all the fluids and ran it for a while. Running great.

I bought the thing after the '05 hurricanes as 'insurance'. So far, it's working well. No power outages longer than an hour or two since.

Life is like that, it is why I have spare parts for my furnace and air conditioner. Never had to use them.

Hunh, the hurricane doesn't even want anything to do with the RNC. Does this mean the God they all pray to has a liberal bias?

The Hurricane Center has shifted the official track to the west...The official track (top) is in the middle of differing models that predict landfall from Nola to Florida (bottom.) 10AM track likely to move again. NHC has 'low confidence' in the track right now.

It was shifted by a sudden increasing pressure wave of hot air over Florida.

if it can make it a few hundred miles further west, it will hit a lot of really drought-y
places.
ask those folks in TX and OK and that neck of the nieghborhood how much of an event even
a good soaking would be.

People of New Orleans - Remain in your FEMA trailers, paddle them directly to the Superdome for your $2500 cash prize. Kanye and Austin Powers are on their way to save you. Kardashian booty may be available to use for flotation or motor-boating.

FYI, when Katrina passed over extreme southern FL into the Gulf, it was a strong tropical storm/weak hurricane... which is what Isaac is now. I'm not saying Isaac is going to be another Katrina -- rather, rapid intensification is certainly possible.

I think you've got the Redneck Riveria confused with Daulphin Island. I believe the island use to be a nature habitat and now has large overpriced houses on part of ......well shiat you've pretty much got it right. :(

Update: New NHC advisory basically says "we don't know where the fark the thing is going beyond 48 hours"... which is not a good sign because a lot of people will probably have to evacuate

2012-08-26 11:06:29 AM
I don't really care about the coastal people, they're used to this, I'm more concerned about where the rain is going to be dumped once it makes landfall, a lot of people could use the moisture in their area.

It's a weird things because a lot of the models made a dramatic westward switch last night. It seems a little like the situation with TS Debby in June, where there's a bifurcation point that will determine whether the track is N or NW, and it's too close to call which side the storm will go to.

At the moment, the track is looking a lot like Katrina's. However, no one expects this one to be anywhere near Katrina.

If the track firms up, and New Orleans is in the path, can ya'll get the fark out of the way please?

Yeah, the models are also doing the whole windshield-wiper effect, and the NHC doesn't want to confuse everybody by having dramatic 300 km shifts in track every 6 hours... I still remember there was a point in Wilma's life where the NHC was stuck with guidance that had 96-hr (or something like that) locations ranging from Cuba to New England -- fortunately, this isn't as bad!

Won't someone think of the Waffle Houses?

Seriously, I was in Gulfport earlier this year and there's more beachfront Waffle Houses than real houses. Still massive areas that haven't been developed since Katrina.

If it's making a bee-line for NOLA, I'll be evacuating. Tape up some windows, move all my shiat to the middle of the room, throw a tarp over it, and head to Texas for the weekend. I'll not be getting rescued from my roof by Anderson Cooper if I can help it, thank you. Contraflow is fun, too! Evacuating for Gustav a few years back was good times. Brought about 6 joints with me and just blazed from here to Lafeyette. It's a good thing I did, because an 8 hour drive from New Orleans to Lafayette will make a motherfarker stabby.

What do you want to bet Mr. Obama has Mr. Fugate in his office with his finger all up in his face?

"Listen, you summabiatch, it's election time and if you screw this up like Brown did, you next post is going to be Thule, Greenland. You better have free beer on hand for everyone 2 hours before the storm hits. And I don't care where is going to hit, BE THERE!"

If you have to evacuate, tell your buddies too.

Jeesus tap dancing Christ, if this thing hit New Orleans, the media coverage is going to be fun. Republicans partying in Tampa while 'po people drown.

Of course Obama is smart enough to stop campaigning, will mobilize every farking resource in the United States, and keep the fark off the golf course and away from $5,000 a plate fund raisers a few days. If he doesn't he's not as smart as I give him credit for.
