Northwest Avoyelles parish (close to what was left of the eye) report:

I left my house and stayed at my brother's outdoor kitchen last night because Laura knocked out power at home. We kept power at the kitchen throughout the night. I woke up and came back home to check things out since the Cleco outage map showed I was on the edge of an outage area. I figured the power was out. Nope, it never went out, not even enough to make the clocks reset. I had a few leaky spots around windows and roof from Laura, but I had prepared those with towels. Didn't even leak despite all the rain. The kids and I did say a prayer of blessing for the house and sprinkled holy water before we left, so I thank the Lord for answered prayers. I hope everyone else has faired okay.
Did you put a wreath of garlic around the door frame? You know just to cover all the bases. But I could, I’m glad to hear everything was hunky-dory

In Lafayette, I lost power at 7:30, back on by midnight.

Wife made very good decision 32 years ago. House we live in is in subdivision with all utilities underground, and we are on same grid with a hospital so when power does go out, we are first back up.

We were out 4-5 hours last night. Last time we were out for that long was with Andrew in 1992. And that was about the same amount of time.

And in NO we had the power go out like 6x in 2hours

So basically the only areas left capable of supporting a major hurricane in the gulf is from Tampa to Miami or perhaps a small area from Corpus to Brownsville. 2020 says hold my beer again. Long range models have been showing this storm bouncing around from Florida's West coast to a hit on the keys and Bahamas and still a long way off but it's still not "over".

At this point, I don't even want to see a wispy white cloud in the sky here in central Louisiana. I'm about 5 miles past the exit for wanting to get off the 2020 hurricane train.

have no idea what that land mass is supposed to be
It's the whole US and the gulf, not just Florida. Look right above the yellow in the storm and you can see Florida's panhandle. Go left and you can make out Louisiana. The northern part of the state isn't covered by weather at all.

Oh hell to the no!!!!!
If we get one more freaking hurricane this year, I'm selling my house and moving to Arizona.
I was thinking the Moon. No atmosphere, no hurricanes....right?

Is this the same system coming off of West Africa that they were showing last week as a yellow "chance for development" zone?
