    Good afternoon all,

    Per ...

    As of now it's scheduled for Thursday 8 PM to Friday 8 AM to arrive.

    Preppers are in decent shape.

    Others ...... social Darwinism.

    .......

    It's a very minor point but I am hoping that soonest, hurricane names are stopped. Numbers work well. Name use is so politically charged, it's just not worth the time - and money - conferences are not "free" - to have discussions on names.

    Good morning all,

    Above is an update from Clinton News Network.

    At some block on the calender it must be accepted and acted on re hurricane events such as > "6,600 people who evacuated ahead of Laura are still being housed in hotels...". There is a public sector cost to this.

    Now try to figure out why we Americans have a reduced standard of living.

    Good morning all,

    Above is the update re Tropical Storm / Hurricane Delta arriving Lake Charles area of US Gulf Coast.

    ......

    Couldn't find the link, so will add something indirectly related to hurricanes and coastal living here;

    Old Geezer posted something about living in dangerous areas such as tidal flood plains and what a hurricane can do making a bad situation worse and worser.

    My complete agreement. I'm in this type of danger zone but age has me working on other stuff - actually volunteer emergency responder stuff because we have an unprepared and lazy population.

    In a 5 October editorial in a rag called "Virginia Pilot Online" (Rag on both pulp and cyber), there's something titled "Keep offshore drilling off coasts".

    The title is legimate enough. There people can get their energy elsewhere, circumstances allowing. Yet, they won't allow.

    In the editorial's rambling: "Drilling off the coasts will only delay the time when we must find other energy sources".

    This area's land access to other supplies, current or future, if not from the water would be via land. This means pipelines. The pipeline route has already been stopped by the environmentists (I hold myself out as a conservationist to distinguish myself from the socialists).

    Lenin's term "useful idiots" must be enacted.

    Unbeknown to readers of that rag, the energy costs will skyrocket concurrent with incomes declining.

    The tidal flood plains of the mid-Atlantic will depopulate.


    Foot Note:

    I do try to place comments / article in appropriate sections of website. Sometimes I find it difficult...but I do try.

    Good morning all,

    A followup weather report re gender-neutral Delta...

    Above report mentions impact also to southern / central Appalachia.

    A typical zombie living here on the coast about 200+ miles from central Appalachia would say it's safe from Delta even affecting central Appalachia.

    A car arriving here from Louisiana via central Appalachia, with ruined brakes an pre-existing little tread on the tires has an accident in a coastal Virginia area. Blame it on the Basa Nove, or Bush 43 or anything else other than one's own neglect to prep for realistic, worst case scenarios.

    people who fail to prepare are your typical zombie(small z).
    hurricanes from the US often travel across the Atlantic to Britain but by the time they hit the South West coast they are downgraded to Storm status.

    Good evening all,

    Hurricane Delta made land ~ 6 PM, Louisiana's CDT...about an hour ago.

    Note link's "nearly 10,000 ... without power ...on Thursday PM".

    Note the picture of downed power lines / poles.

    Had read or heard somewhere that southwest Louisiana is still without a functioning weather radar.

    I'm trying to monitor the evacuations focused to how "social distancing" is handled. If disease-infected flood waters don't get ya', it's not desirable to be stressed out and tired and in a crowded environment.

    The ONLY good thing that I can say about Delta is that maybe they have not yet rebuilt from Laura in August. The people in Cameron and Lake Charles are having a ROUGH year!!! It is strange how this sort of thing happens. You get slammed several times and then may go 10 or 15 years before you get hit again. The problem with the Gulf Storms is they are fed by a warm gulf stream that makes them grow fast and become monsters. Delta broke all records in how fast it went from a tropical depression to a cat 4 hurricane. Fortunately, it weakened before making landfall.

    A category 4 hurricane has the same wind speed as an F-3 Tornado. A Cat four or a five can literally peel up a highway. The damage is unimaginable. Remember Sandy that went in on the East Coast that was such a monster? It made landfall as a category one. Where I was raised we used to go to the beach and have a hurricane party when a category 1 rolled in. The fishing was great and the waves were actually big enough to surf. A Cat 4 and above are not shelter in place storms. You need to LEAVE because any place that you try to ride it out in that isn't solid as a bomb shelter and 18 to 20 feet above sea level may not be there when the storm is done.

    Good morning TexDanm,

    I'm one of those who remembers Hurricane Sandy and the follow-on Super Storm Sandy.

    It's a rhetorical question; Where can a Gulf Coast resident leave to ?

    Social distancing public health regulations mean that the traditional emergency shelter of a school's gym floor with cots is restricted. Pets, from dogs, cats to horses must have arrangements also.

    I believe the tidal areas of the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts will be depleted of population other than critical category personnel. My only 2 questions to this is the time line and how metro New York City will be handled.
