^ What NDG just said in the last thread. Large wind field like irene thus even with the low pressures were not seeing extreme winds. Another point about the inland flooding issue..no matter what the intensity, we have a very large circulation that will take days to really wind down and isaac will be moving slowly.

I can report that the bayou is as low as it has been all week, due to the wind coming from the north. If it stays that way it's all good for me. If not, I've done all I can do and will play the cards dealt to me. I am expecting a couple of rough days for sure.
