I am in NOLA with 2 empty barges. We will button up everything tomorrow and ride out 3-4 days of rough weather.

2020 continues to be anything but boring. We have two hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico at the same time, and both are expected to make landfall within twenty-four hours of each other.

No hurricanes here in Montana but fire season is anything but boring! Thanks to smoke (mostly from the CA fires) I can barely see the mountains from my house! shocked

Saw this and seemed appropriate:

A New Orleanian walks into a bar, says "I’ll have two hurricanes and a Corona." Bartender says that'll be $20.20.

Sounds like some coast line over there is going to be hit hard.


"Unsurvivable storm surge with large and destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage from Sea Rim State Park, Texas, to Intracoastal City, Louisiana, including Calcasieu and Sabine Lakes. This surge could penetrate up to 30 miles inland from the immediate coastline. #Laura"

My associates in Columbia, LA were hit hard, even though winds were down to Cat 1 by then. Power out, likely for days, trees down, roads blocked, etc.
