    Yesterday evening was glorious here in north central Mississippi. Temperature when husband was grilling tuna? 71. That's a typical overnight low this time of year.

    Today it is raining. And I'm looking at the *models* forecasting rainfall and they are-- 'cuse the language-- full of fucking shit. They forecast rain to move straight up through Louisiana. I can look at the radar and storm rain accumulation on RadarScope from Shreveport and nothing. Look at Jackson or Columbus, MS, or Memphis and it's covered.

    Yesterday I checked out a Bourbon Street web cam. I did not see the 10-20" of rain falling.

    Re: generator. Only ethanol free gas. Crank it up once a month, plug in two deep freezers. Let it run. One thing we did learn the hard way was that it's nice to have a generator, but it's even nicer to have the correct number of various lengths of extension cords to run where you need them. When the lights are off is no time to be wondering where the cords all are!

    It appears that New Orleans did not get the amount of rain that the meteorologists forecasted. The North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain appears is still flooded and Baton Rouge and areas west and south of I-10 appear to be flooded.

    Mississippi seems to have taken the brunt of the storm and the rains continue according to the various weather related channels. Some are predicting that it may take a day or two as the rivers and tributaries start to drain potentially causing flooding.

    Who knows, but we will see...

    Well after that close call with a Tornado I can safely say I need to make a bag or something. I’m not as ready as I thought I was.

    I only use ethanol free gas on all my small engines. From generator to lawn mowers to chainsaw to weed eater, etc.
    The generator only gets fueled IF i need it. And if I do, then I'll let the gas sit in it until the end of hurricane season.
    Then, not only is the tank drained, but the carburetor float bowl is removed, cleaned out, and carb/choke cleaner is sprayed into the jets and the fuel inlet. The needle float valve is removed and cleaned.

    Well I think I have a small bag/caddy to put a couple things in like a flashlight and a book. I am thinking of getting a set of chewy bars or something of that order to put in there as well. But I get cold easily so what else could I put in it to help me stay warm?
