    I hear that in the US if you are told that you have eaten Horse, it would result in a strong reaction.
    By the way, speaking of some unpleasant part of animal, I advice you if you ever eat something with the flavor of vanilla to check the origin as it can come from the castoreum.

    Well it looks like we're going to have another hurricane hit Louisiana. Right now the cones too large, going from SWLA (where my family is at) to SELA (where I'm at), but they're projecting it to be at least 110 MPH which is 1 MPH shy of a category 3.

    It has time to either gain that 1, or lose quite a bit more. It's going to be that kind of year, though. We're nearing the end of August, which letter are we up to by now? Will we get into the Greek letters? Are we going to have hurricane Sapator?

    Yeah, this is peak hurricane season. The landfall is on the anniversary of Katrina, but I believe this will be the I name, whatever that is. They predicted a busy hurricane season this year, but so far they've just been tropical storms. Poor North Carolina got pretty bad flooding from TS Henri though.

    Will you move for the time of the hurricane? In any case stay safe and hold tight !

    Re: Post Race!

    If it does intensify to a category 3 then we'll leave, otherwise I'll stay put.

    This was sort of a rule of thumb my dad took (and I carried on) around 2008 when we evacuated for Gustav and still got hit because it changed course, but then stayed stayed for Isaac and got hit because it kept its course.

    Rather than trying to "outsmart" the hurricane, I take a risk assessment approach where anything less than a category 3 will basically leave us without power for a little while but a category 3 can really mess you up.

    Crap. It looks like it will be right off the coast as a weak 3.

    I was about to post that the news here (Midwest, so what do they know about hurricanes) is saying it is likely to be category 3 and stay a 2 well inland. Stay safe.

    I just went to the grocery store and picked up some red beans, rice, and vienna sausage. I'm ready.

    I haven't had a vienna sausage since I was pretty young. My parents would take them on camping trips. My sister loved them, I did not.

    Well, I'm 30 miles east of where the storm is projected to hit at 130MPH sustained and 150MPH gusts. So I'm evacuating. Wish me luck!

    dday9 - News was saying cat 4 was possible. Glad to hear you are moving inland. That many cats can wreak serious havoc.

    Cat 5 would be better for networking, though.

    Re: Post Race!

    In all seriousness it looks like Houma and Thibodaux are taking a direct hit at a Cat 4. My wifeís parents live in Houma and grandparents live in Thibodaux. Hell we live 10 miles east of Houma.

    Iím incredibly nervous because her family stayed and plus I donít know if my friends and I will have a home to come back to on Monday. My family is still rebuilding from Laura last year and theyíre saying that this one will be just as strong as Betsy.

    I love where I live, and I know that this is always a risk, but it is still scary nonetheless. Especially as the head of the house; itís a different dynamic when youíre a teenager. But, lache pas la patate.

    That's one of the things I didn't like about living in the Florida Keys. We'd start putting pins in a map as soon as a storm was named. If it got into a certain slot, then it was going to hit us. You always have to be at least somewhat ready to go, though not at a moments notice.

    I just got some pictures of my house with the outer eye wall hitting and some shingles have lifted as well as some of the flashing.

    Apparently Ida developed two eyes, so we havenít gotten to the inner (stronger) eye yet.
