splitsville

90% of the highway traffic in Jackson today was from Lousiana tagged cars. The volume of traffic was HUGE. I spotted a '60's Safari among the dozens of SOB's headed west on I-20, kinda hoping it was one of our New Orleans pals splittin'.
It's gonna be a busy next few days...I got selected to assist in 'post event damage review'

Unfortunately 'post event' means 'there went the eye, where are you?'

Good luck to all of my fellow Gulf Coast Airstreamers!!

Greg, good luck to you & your family. Looks like you may get more wind than us.

Good luck up North, it is going to get hairy in the next 12 hours or so.
Just sitting here waiting for that next 12 hours. The house is boarded up, the AS is inside, we at my business....a little safer building. Curfew starts at 10:00pm.

I was watching the Weather Channel this morning. You know it's going to be a bad day when Jim Cantore and a camera crew shows up in your front yard.
New Orleans looks like a ghost town.

Windy here in Kiln, not so bad - yet. Like a late summer thunderstorm that won't quit. Gustov shifted to the west a little and spared us the worst. Right now it looks like a yard clean-up day on Tuesday. Twisters all around but none here - Gulfport and areas out in the county have had reports of touch downs but none sustained for long distances.

Back to the TV to watch.

Mike

Brave has nothing to do with it. My 81 year old Mother and oldest sister refuse to leave. Before my Father passed away last year he had asked me to take good care of them - they are not to far away and so I sit just in case I can help. Not the best plan - I would have probably left yesterday if they would have gone but now I sit with the F-250 ready to roll out if necessary.

Gusty still, lost power for a few minutes but the backup generator for the whole house took care of that. Best money a person can spend.

Back to the fun looking out the windows and listening for that tell-tale sound of a "FREIGHT TRAIN"

Jim Cantore, who was in Biloxi, was the last person I saw on TV before the power & cable went out when Katrine was headed our way. I know that feeling. Not too bad here, windy-gusts up to 63mph, raising water on US Hwy 90 along the beach & low areas and some tornado warnings. The fact I have internet, power, cable, and water pressure shows it's not too bad here. Hope everyone else is OK.

Windy, VERY WINDY - 50-60mph. Lucy (Caravel) and Desi (CCD) are holding their own in the wide open yard. That was for those of you who may be concerned about the Airstreams.

We are not to bad either. Went into an internal bathroom space for about 10 minutes for the heavy winds. Still not so good outside. Weather reports that it may be 5 more hours of this stuff.

Mike

CCD vs. GUSTOV - So far so good. Stills just do not represent the terror.

The F250 is at the ready, trailer is ready to go - in the morning I set up and hook up the CCD and move the Caravel out into the yard to get her off the slope of the yard where she sits. My 5kw generator is ready and has been run, fuel for days, Mr. Remington (12ga) in the truck, and the wife and I will be gone.......

What a mess, too many temporary structures around here.

Ya'll keep us in mind - all the prayers are welcome, it's not going to be good for alot of people.

Be safe, Mike
Definately keeping all of you in the path in mind. Be safe, get out early stay off the interstates. They will be parking lots. If any one needs a really safe place to go we had snow in western MT last night.

Thanks to those who offered me safe Haven during evacuation.

I just finished washing the bugs off of my trailer and now have my internet access back.

I would like to thank the several members of the forum who offered me a safe haven for evacuation from Gustav. I received several messages offering refuge from the storm, not only from this forum but also from a Triumph site I frequent, it is wonderful to find such kindness from fellow Airstreamers and I hope I can return the favor if it is ever needed.

I ended up in,Tuscaloosa AL for a couple of nights. Came home to find some leaves in the pool, and my double 8 foot gates blown down, which always happens, no surprise there. Ran on generator for a couple of days and lived in the trailer. New Orleans is just about back to Normal which may not be such a good thing.

I am thinking of those who may be in the path of Ike, please be careful.
