This storm is expected to reach Cat 5 before landfall tonight around midnight. It looks like Lake Charles LA is going to get hammered. I am about 75 miles NNE of Lake Charles and I sure hope it doesn’t move in this direction. 

I have my lanterns and stoves ready but I am not looking forward to it. I went through Katrina and that was enough for me.

Good luck.  I think the storm is indeed supposed to turn NNE after landfall.
We'll all hope you and others are spared and safe.

I spent six weeks re-building after Irma did a direct hit on us in Florida three years ago.  Not fun, nor an adventure like some fantasy bush-craft made for TV cable non-reality show.  It was gruesome and devastating and gut wrenching to see folks who lost everything.  The first few weeks you are on adrenaline, the next months are painful reality.

My experience was that those who helped others and shared did better, especially in the months afterwards.

Stay safe, I hope the hurricane loses energy before landfall.
Can't sleep, squirrels will eat me....

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

I’d like to, but my job requires me to stay here. I work in Administration at our local hospital and have to be available if needed.

Bob, maybe someone could say it better, but I'm in doubt about that.

It’s about 1:30am here. The storm seems to be staying on a more NW’ly course.  Roughly paralleling the Sabine River.

Winds here are in the 40s, tornado warnings all over the area.

Lake Charles is getting brutalized.

I wanna make a joke to bring some cheer but it’s kinda hard when it’s 3 in the morning and I’m doing homework I should’ve done earlier today.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,

Thank you all for the good thoughts and prayers. Made it through the night with minimal damage. Power is out but no big deal. Winds got to 60mph sustained, with gusts up to 75.
Closer in to the storm it’s a lot worse, I feel very fortunate.

So glad to hear everyone is safe Brian. Like you said, the power outage is a minor deal. You have the equipment to overcome that😎. I have a cousin in New Braunsfel Texas that I always worry about when storms come out of the Gulf like that. Again, glad to hear a good report.

I hope everyone is safe.  The aftermath is devastating to those affected by the storm.  Do your best to stay positive and assist those who are less fortunate.

Lots of wind damage where I live, although my house made it through seemingly unscathed.  Will know more once I get back home.  Estimating to be without power for two weeks....  maybe more.

Oh yes, we evacuated!  Last time we got stranded when we stayed and I didn’t want that to happen again (or have my roof fly off while we’re inside) as I have a 7 year old.  I think we’ll head back today, because we all miss home, but I think it’ll be miserable in the heat and humidity without AC.  Such is life.

I will be stretched between work and my sisters house.   Both places sustained damage.  A tree fell on my sisters house.  Part of the roof and wall came off at my office.
