    What town. I’m in Port Arthur. We’re only a few miles inland.

    Pulled the generator out and filled up cars and gas cans. Marco probably will just bring a load of water. May have to board up the windows if Laura stays West. Maybe it will skirt North of us but two in a row is nuts.

    Stay safe up there. I’ve not been since we played the red bus festival years ago. My wife is up they way a lot for her job.

    We took two licks in three weeks from Frances and Jeanne in 2004, but two in 48 hours is a little ridiculous.

    Stay safe, all:)

    This is uncharted territory.

    Difficult to know if accumulated rain can be got rid of, or if storm surges will accumulate one on top of another.

    I don't know of any modeling, for this scenario. I had planned to be down there about now, but I'm staying put in the Memphis area until the coast is clear - assuming it does clear.

    One might thing that one storm might scavenge the power of the other. But there's so much energy stored in the hot waters of the Gulf, maybe two or even more Hurricanes can thrive and they can function almost as pack animals. We've seen multiple tornadoes together - what do we really know about multiples of Typhoons and so on?

    Marco is getting ripped apart. The rain is going east and the center is heading west. That’s good. Laura looks to be heading between Galveston and Lafayette. And she will be a strong one possible cat 3. Be prepared.

    Marco is going to wind up being not much. It looks like Laura may go by us to the west, but we'll probably get a lot of wind and rain. You guys in East Texas better batten down the hatches.

    So strange, that perhaps the worst of Marco will be deluges of rainfall way over in the region where the Apalachicola River dumps into the Gulf - over where the Eastern and Central time zones meet. Hundreds of miles from Louisiana, or even Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties, Mississippi.

    But I'm not totally sure we're done with Marco. I keep thinking about Hurricane Juan.

    Dual acoustic cover band, though one might totally be a shredder.

    Looks like so far Port Arthur, Beaumont, and all of Orange County are under mandatory evacuation starting at 6 am. I'm going to sit around a few miles north and watch all the traffic go by. I just hope it doesn't get into these woods like Rita did. That was a mess. But I did buy a couple of chains for my chainsaw today.

    We left New Orleans last night and are riding out the remainder in MS. I hope all y’all are safe!
