Hurricane Ida
« on: August 27, 2021, 08:03:27 PM »
The weather predictor is showing Ida will pass directly over us here in Brookhaven.  Among other things we have our generators ready and hopefully plenty of gas because we certainly will loose power.

My sister’s deciding in the morning whether she will leave NOLA and come up here to TN. 
I remember vividly having to make these decisions all the time.  I grew up in Morgan City, LA. Last I saw, they are right in line for this one.

Our weatherman said the rain will hit Tennessee in a few days. Just talking 3-4" but said it could track right over the disaster area from the flood.

It looks like the weather guessers have shifted Ida's projected track toward the West and actually over Eastern Louisiana.  This will probably give us less wind but a massive amount of rainfall.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes.

16 years to the day since Hurricane Katrina devastated us.  The prediction now is that Hurricane Ida will still be a Category 1 when the eye passes about 45 miles West of us.  This puts us on the 'wet' side of the storm and will  give us a predicted ~9 inches of rain.

The eye is projected to pass directly over my Cabin/property. 

Our weather event will be tomorrow so all of the generators will be exercised today.

MM, I hope you and all of our other Forestry Forum friends who are in the path weather the storm with minimal or no damage.  I hope the amendments that have been made since Katrina are effective because this storm may put them to the test.

My son in law and his crew are on the way to Louisiana right now.  They spent about six weeks helping to rebuild the electrical service from the sub stations out after Michael.  He will likely be gone two weeks this time as he now works for the City of Lakeland and not an independent contractor.

It is not his first rodeo.  Last night at supper we were discussing that he would take an extra pair of boots, a boot drier, bug dope and I forgot to suggest that it is always good to have a good supply of Gold Bond lotion/powder for the nether regions.

Hope you are faring well, Magicman. I've lost touch with most of my acquaintances in Brookhaven since Keystone-Seneca shut down some years ago. (I remember sleeping on the floor of their conference room after Katrina hit, since all of the area hotel rooms were full of powerline repair folks and other emergency workers along with people displaced form their homes in other parts of the state.)

Yup, the Forestry Forum is my 'home page' so even if I log on to check the weather I have passed through here.  

All is well here.  The Power companies and their contractors are doing a magnificent job restoring power.   Marty and I have removed all of the generators (4) that our families were using except one and we expect that it can be removed before dark.

PatD and I made a quick trip to the Cabin and all was OK there except the power was/is still off so we removed what little was in the frig.  

Tomorrow will be a clean up day and hopefully I can saw Wednesday for my customer and Thursday for myself.

No in da oven.  Actually dat skillet thing is probably more accurately called a griddle, 'cause it's only maybe an inch deep. 



It holds da heat well and browns da bottoms very nicely.  I like 'crusty' biscuits.  This is a different batch and it's easier to see the height of the sides.

Glad you came through not too bad.

I had an old Carpenter working for me in the 1970's, who was pretty overweight.  He went to the doctor, and the Dr. told him he needed to back off eating biscuits, and lose some weight.  

The next time he went to the doctor (he was having heart trouble), the doctor told him he thought he'd told him to back off the biscuits. 

Mr. Pierce said," I did back off eating biscuits."

The Doctor asked him how many he ate last night, and Mr. Piece said, "I didn't eat but a dozen."

When I make biscuits I gotta peel the wrapper off the can far enough that it goes "PLOOF!" If I don't go poppin' right away, I gotta bang it on the corner of the counter. ;D

I seen a recipe online for cookin' biscuits in a skillet on a stovetop (or campfire) covered like a Dutch oven, wondered if you were "roughin' it" and makin' 'em dat way.

  Dumplings and fried apple/fruit pies are the the only valid reason for having whoomp biscuits in the fridge. They are an abomination when served in lieu of the real thing. Unfortunately I think they are what Cracker Barrel is serving which is sort of like watching a great society in sharp decline. :(

We’re gonna get hit by it but it’s just a tropical storm, 60mph wind gusts, 4 inches of rain during the day, thunderstorms. Definitely won’t be a work outside day

My sister from NOLA finally made her way up here. Power and water are out for an undetermined amount of time. Water will be an issue for a while. The waste water system is down, too. 
Her house and neighborhood made out fine with no real damage. 

The up side is that she emptied her freezer into a couple of ice chests to bring up here. Lots of trout and
Red fish! 8) 8) :D

How is the fuel situation up there?

I thought that we were done with generators, but we still have one running. 

Gasoline is available but not readily.  Close to the interstate and the major highway, there is none or log lines but a half mile away there is no wait.   We made a round trip to the coast area today (funeral) and even though I knew that I could make the round trip without filling up, I still topped off about 80 miles from home so that we would not have to deal with the fuel situation when we got home.

I filled my non-ethanol and Diesel containers Saturday before the storm.

Thanks for the reply.

Everyone in NOLA and surrounding areas are heading up I55 to get gas.  I am good as of now and hope to get electricity soon but I have some friends that might not get it for awhile.  There is a lot of trees down in south Louisiana.  The electric crews and tree crews are doing an amazing job getting things back in place but it is just a mess around here.

Ida came through my neighborhood on Wednesday, wet and windy but not "terrible". Thursday I picked up sticks and branches out of the yard and I have a few bigger branches that will need a couple cuts over some of my woods trails. Today I made a few passes up the driveway with the tractor and scraper box. We never lost power so I feel fortunate.

My begonias took a direct hit. Photo for insurance purposes. 



 We had a tornado touchdown 2 miles south of me. 7 homes demolished, 9 with major damage and 40 with minor damage. 

Volunteers swarmed in and tarped  damaged roofs, chainsaws buzzed all day and debris hauled away leaving some homeowners near tears. In Oxford that’s how we roll.

A friend had his farm place south of me hit by a small tornado. It tore up a fair amount of stuff. Tore the garage clear off of the house, took part of the house roof.  Made a mess of the out buildings, and trees. I left the office and ran down there. There were already 15 or so folks there helping clean up when we got there.  In a short while there were 60 or so there. A TV news crew showed up from Omaha and the young reporter  was dumb founded at the sight.. He asked me if this was some sort of village on this little farm (like a commune).   He couldn't figure out where the people came from.   I said no this is the country we take care of each other. We had Gary's place pretty well cleaned up  in 3 hrs.

I was deployed to Louisiana for the last week in response to Ida with my FEMA urban search and rescue team.  I was in place in Lafayette just before the storm made landfall.  It was predicted to come right over us, but it went East.  The next day they sent us closer to NOLA.  They had been projecting that damage could have been just like from Katrina, but luckily that wasn't the case.  Still, the whole area was very hard hit by wind that took down more powerlines and poles than I could have imagined.  I just returned home today.

We drive.  Our convoy consists of 3 tractor trailers, 5 flatbeds F550's, 1 eleven passenger van, 3 Ford Excursions and 2 large busses.  We pull 3 boat trailers that carry 2 boats each, 2 gooseneck trailers, 1 bumper pull enclosed trailer and one flatbed trailer carrying a Kubota utility vehicle.  One of the tractor trailers is a flatbed carrying several large pallets, a large generator, a forklift and another Kubota.  While  we can load our equipment cache on C130, usually its better to drive.  We have much more flexibility that way.  With hurricanes, we have enough notice that we leave ahead of landfall and are in place ahead of time.  We do a lot of training with helicopters, namely Chinooks and Blackhawks.

Those tornadoes are nasty but they are sorta random as to what they will destroy. Seen results of one here a few years ago. Took out a trailer home, nothing but insulation scattered in the yard. And there was a family inside, unharmed. Right across the road is an old farm house, never touched it. Went across two heavy transmission lines, no damage, then tore a path down through the maple woods and died out before it got to the St John River, probably a mile from that trailer home.

Glad everyone is safe and eat'n good. ;D

One of the last storms I worked before retiring I worked with some Line crews from Canada.  They were all retired from their first jobs.  This storm work was a part time gig as I recall. They did a great job.  I do not speak french so on a few occasions I had to use a translator app to communicate.

Yoopers also speak a language all their own but it sure isn’t French and to foreigners it may as well be. 

Necessity is also the mother of understanding a language you weren’t taught.  Yesterday I was driving Amish and he asked to stop at the end of the drive to speak with his neighbor. She was up a bank so hollering commenced. When he got back in the car, I asked who’s birthday had she mentioned and he temporarily had a look of horror cross his face that an outsider was capable of eavesdropping. Very quickly he recovered and began to chuckle and said that I always amaze them.

Don't know if Ida was the cause, but we had some very nice slow rain here in Kansas, Thursday nite we got 3/4", and then Friday nite we received 2" more, nice and slow.  Now the beans are soaked up and we will have a nice fall harvest, as long as we don't get an early frost.  Just in time for the beans, they were getting crisp, but seem to be recovering nicely.

I have two brothers that speak pretty fluent German, when either of them are around the language most often spoken is English!
They were both dumbfounded a while back when they (the Amish neighbors) were speaking German and one of my brothers broke in and said "Ah, spreken ze doich"!  :o

Still no power as of this morning.  I am all good except for the power situation.

The following is drone footage of Grand Isle, LA.  Lot of damage to the western side of the island as it is lower in elevation which allowed the storm surge to break through the protective berm and wash over the island.  Everything on the ground floor and camps that were not 10 ft off the ground were wash away.

 @2 Jugs I'm so sorry.  That damage is devastating.  We had folks telling us that we were needed in Grand Isle, but of course we can only go where FEMA sends us to help and that was not one of the places.  I do know that another Task Force was eventually sent there.

MM,

May the Lord bless you on your trip next week.

ffots,

No offense, but you lucked out on not going to Grand Isle.  The living conditions down there are brutal and will be for a while.

I have several friends with camps down there and spent many weekends fishing and relaxing on Grand Isle.  I have seen it come back from Katrina and Gustav and many other smaller hurricanes.  The devastation from Ida is in a whole other category.  Normally, it will take a week or 2 for services to be restored and cleanup would end but normal is years away.  For some, all they had done there is gone.  For them, there will be a new normal

Today the wife and I made a run to La Rose, LA(60 miles north of Grand Isle) to visit one of her co-workers.  The damage is really bad down there and we are 2 weeks out from the storm.  I can only imagine what it looked like the day after.  Electric companies are rebuilding most of the grid.  

The further you go, the worse it gets.   :( :( :(
