Dennis to me the difference is Gustav moved, so I only sat under the worst of it for a little while. This thing is just spinning on top of us. I am hearing a lot more things hit the roof than I did during Gustav. Katrina was more intense for me but I may not be saying that in another 6 hours.
Several power flickers in Reserve since 0425L, but as of now, still on. According to WeatherBug, ENE-E wind at 37mph (higher gusts) and heavy rain. I think the door to my shed blew off. Getting louder.
Short-sleeve pants, no-sleeve shirt, bare-feet shoes = WARM GOOD / COLD BAD = SAY NO TO ICE AND SNOW !!!
