Based on Hurricane Ida's projected path, courtesy of the National Hurricane Tracking Center, I have assumed and completed the preps for HurCon 4.

Tomorrow, I'll check the NHTC's projection and probably go to HurCon 3.

Well, isn't that interesting ... thanks for bringing it up. I was completely unaware that a storm was present. I guess I've been concentrating on other things. Pretty far off but it does bear watching.

Looks like a dud to me. Maybe some rain in Fla or Ala but it'd likely to be not much more by the time it gets to land again.

I am now in HurCon 3 and the checklist has been completed,,,,we'll stay put, as in Bugging In, if it comes this way although that is unlikely.

I hope so James.

That would be lovely if she just sputtered out in to a quick rainmaker.

Though, going through the motions of preps can expose kinks that would otherwise go unnoticed until it was too late.

Any hurricane is good for an excuse to top off supplies like any of us need an excuse. As for Ida, late in the season and the Gulf is starting to cool off. We could use the rain in SOCAL.

It's looking better for Louisiana every Hurricane Update!!!!

My Hurricane Preps Checklist is up to date.

BTW,,,, why is it that a Hurricane shows up about every other time that my DD1 has surgery scheduled????

I don't know about you all but the slack hurricane seasons we have had the last few years makes me nervous. Too long without a good scare. People get complacent. Supplies don't get checked. Batteries don't get replaced. The memory of what can happen grows dim. People forget so soon.

"Too long without a good scare. People get complacent."

Here in western WA, we get at least one good wind storm every winter or so. And every single time the warning goes out, the stores are stripped of the usual stuff.

Now, I would like to think that everyone is just adding to what they've already got, but I have the feeling that they dumped or used the last of the supply and are now panicking that a bad one is on the way and they're starting from scratch again. *sigh*
