Shacked up in a hotel with my uncle east of Baton Rouge

It's our turn. The bayous, marshes and deltas did their job giving Ida a gut punch. Disgusting how that natural defense is being destroyed.

It's knarley out there but nothing like folks to the south. Took my uncle out for a ride for a few hours earlier which was interesting, my uncle I mean lol. 93year old Korean War vet and his bottle of Cutty Shark. He gets and can do what he wants for the most part as far as I'm concerned. He's still smart as a whip and in no way feeble.

Were getting some good 80-90 mph gusts. I think he knows he may not be living on Grand Isle anymore. I love this old guy.

Grand Isle does not sound like it's faring well at all.

Still no word from the people who were riding the storm out there. Presumably they'll fly over and try to spot them when the weather's calm enough.
