Can't imagine living like that. You guys are bowling pins and it's like a drunk is lobbing balls your way for months.
It goes in cycles. We had it real bad 12-15 years ago, but until Micheal, it had been quiet. This year is way up on numbers, but nothing bad yet.

Yesterday we got a little rain from the first one. Most of it was to the south and west of me, and done by dark. I was able to do my usual walk last night without getting wet. Today there is no rain, but the humidity is off the chart. Only low 90's but damn it's hot. The crazy thing about storms in the gulf, is they pull all the rain to them, so we have clear sky's until the weekend.

This gal is getting stronger. Water temp is high enough cat 5 is not out of the question. As flat as the land is, storm surge is going to be bad. Prayers to all in the track.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 700 PM CDT (0000 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Laura was located
near latitude 28.4 North, longitude 92.9 West. Laura is moving
toward the north-northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h). A turn toward the
north is expected overnight, and a northward motion should continue
on Thursday. A northeastward to east-northeastward motion is
expected Thursday night and Friday. On the forecast track, Laura
will approach the upper Texas and southwest Louisiana coasts this
evening and move inland within that area tonight. The center of
Laura is forecast to move over northwestern Louisiana tomorrow,
across Arkansas Thursday night, and over the mid-Mississippi Valley
on Friday.

Reports from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that the
maximum sustained winds have increased to near 150 mph (240 km/h)
with higher gusts. Laura is an extremely dangerous category 4
hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some
additional strengthening is possible tonight before Laura reaches
the northwest Gulf coast overnight. Rapid weakening is expected
after Laura moves inland.

It's been smoky in the Colorado Rockies of late because of all the wildfires. Air quality got really bad earlier this week but it's better now, at least for the moment.
I heard the fire on the west slope was the largest in state history. Stay safe out there.

Light rain, 76F with 89% humidity. 90% chance of rain. We've had pretty steady light rain with a few thunderboomers mixed in. A little over an inch of rain since midnight. Next few days don't look to be as much of a washout.

Whatever happened to Larry the gardener ??
Long story short, a laptop killed Larry (the) Gardener, some other stuff happened to kill the next Larry, and now Covid is doing a real number on this version of me. Since March my job blew away and with it, my free time. I am coming in one day a week, but I'm having to do real work. Often when I can sit in the office, there are other folks around, which doesn't lend itself to RIU. But today I do have a little time to kill.

I got out before sunrise and got in one charge worth of lawn mowing done. Not too bad then. Now at 955 it's sunny, 87F (HI of 95) with 66% humidity. Forecast high low of 94/73F with 0% of rain today, 10% tonight and 30% tomorrow. 10 day high low of 94/70F with 5 days of possible rain. Traditionally the first couple three weeks of September is the hottest time of year here.

This year in Colorado things are getting crazy, weather wise;

Labor Day weekend is mid to upper 90s, that's record heat for this time of year.

Then Tuesday night and Wednesday morning we're supposed to get a Canadian Express and SNOW!

LMAO

I'll believe it when I see it.

Cooler day today. This morning it was 0800 before I got out to mow. The grass was dryer and I didn't sweat up in 10 minutes. It's 88F with 60% humidity now. Low of 70 tonight.

1.3 inches since midnight. But I was able to get out and drag some posts out of the creek this morning. (you only get wet when you're out of the truck) Rain got too hard to handle about 1130. This was just before that.

Sally not doing much this morning, and she's doing it slowly. 2mph has to be killing those folks waiting for her to come ashore. Top winds are down to 85mph. That will help with storm surge, but the slow forward motion is going to be a flood machine.
