Hurricane Ida and Asian Grocery Stores


Recommended Posts

 I don't like this. It looks like Tennessee could be getting a lot of rain from this in the middle of next week.

Ida could make landfall as a Category 4 hurricane on Sunday when it hits the Gulf Coast with maximum winds of 140 mph, according to the latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center. 

Projected to become a Category 4 hurricane, the storm would strike 16 years to the day since Hurricane Katrina made landfall there as a Category 3 storm with 125 mph winds near the riverside community of Buras in Plaquemines Parish.

If y’all would start driving electric cars and stop farting this wouldn’t happen any more.

If it really is the farting, then I need to apologize to y’all. That one is probably almost entirely on me.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They made the decision not to evacuate the hospitals in New Orleans since there are no beds in Texas or elsewhere in Louisiana.

I get it, but that’s going to be a nightmare scenario if Ida does in fact make landfall as a Cat 4.

Current local TV forecast has it hitting somewhere around New Orleans as a Cat 4. Then the remnants running up the Mississippi and hitting  West TN starting Sunday night and going  through Tuesday.  Calling for winds up to 35 mph and possibly 4-5" of rain here. I hope they're wrong. 🙄

I thought this was a joke when I first saw it but it comes from Accuweather and is sometimes used by FEMA.

What is the Waffle House Index?

No joke, this became well known about 10-15 years or so ago during other hurricanes. Unlike our beloved gubbermint bureaucrats, private enterprises have aggregated their fecal matter for when said fecal matter hits the fan. In short, they know what the heck they're doing. (Mostly because they hire people based on performance & not because they check diversity hire boxes.) 

I'm afraid this storm may well make Katrina look like a summer storm by the time it's done, IMO.
