Poor New Orleans.  Ida is projected to be a Category 4 Hurricane when it hits the Louisiana coast. Nature appears to have it in for that state and city.

The only person I know in New Orleans is making plans to move to Canada because they're uncertain of what climate change will bring to the city in the near future. Pretty fricking scary and sad.

Despite a clear sky with sunshine, it is -1° today. The predicted snowfalls are unlikely.

Today is a very windy fifty degrees F. I'll be out on the water soon enough. Hopefully there isn't too much spray.

drove my steel into dallas. got done at about 1930, and had to drive 70 miles to oklahoma before i could find a place to park. i do not like cities.

but i spent the night in the chickasaw nation, where i have 180 years of ancestors buried. and it was refreshing to be back in tbe prairies aga8n. drove out through the sac and fox, the seminole, the creek, and the cherokee.

loaded a 32000 pound coil of aluminum in arkansas and im headed for kentucky tomorrow
