All's well here. Just without internet, and only on because I visited someone in town.
It's flooding to the northeast. Not the northwest, where the sinkhole is.
And reasons I know of that it "felt stronger", for some, was because the eye wall was huge, and it stayed in 1 place for hours. Also, since the eye
"reformed" or formed for the first time right before it hit the coast (I didn't notice a previous eye, due to not caring until the thing was in the
gulf), that's the point when it intensifies. It became a more stable storm, and did not die off the way most do when it hits the coast. A lot of
times when any of them hits the coast, it dies off a little. Just like Katrina wasn't a Cat 5 by the time it hit NO, although it was a 5 when it hit
Anyway, I was in the eye, for the 4-6 hours it stalled over us. We experienced the north and south end of the eye wall. It felt like a tropical
storm, through almost all of it. The part that always feels the worst is the northwest. New Orleans got the northwest wall for the amount of time it
stalled over us. They got the 2nd band out from that when it stalled over Grand Isle. They got the hell this storm had to give. No wonder Slidell
