I lost the sending unit in Katrina and replaced it for about $250. I have seen them on E-Bay for about $500+.

The Lake is about 3 foot seas and about 2 feet below normal.Pressure 29.66 and falling.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My sending unit is atop the house at about 50 ft about sea level. We are at 42 mph sustained and a 29.64 pressure falling.

Covington, LA


Same here in Ascension Parish. Just sent husband out to let a few inches of water out of the pool so it doesn't flow over. He is a 27 year paramedic with Baton Rouge EMS and is on nights tonight. Don't want to go out there in the rain to drain water from the pool. Bad enough my dogs won't go out to do their "business" without an umbrella! Anyway... steady rain since 6:00 this morning and we've had some gusty wind, but all is good over here.

BTW... "lovelyweather", thanks for the hook up to NOLA radar. I will hang on to it since we seem to always be caught between Baton Rouge weather, Livingston Parish weather and New Orleans weather.

That might be too fancy... The one I have is made by Oregon Scientific. It's wireless and I think my wife picked it up at Sam's for about $150.00 the Christmas before Katrina. The only thing wrong with it is the wind sensor has a lot of play in it so that measurement is now very inaccurate. Other than that it has been a good unit.

Anyone else thinking this thing is headed back offshore? Sure looks like it's headed that way. Will be interesting to see what happens overnight.

I know but if it's headed South, I said IF, at 6mph it's only 16 hours from the coast. I don't know that it's moving anywhere that fast, but it looks to me like it's drifting S or SW. Or, maybe I'm reaching Smile

Looking at NWS N.O. radar, it appears as though the COC is just North of Angie, LA (North of Bogalusa on the LA/MS border. West of Hattiesburg.

I will have to agree that it seem to be doing something further south. I am in Mandeville and if you look at radar I am just getting back into what seems to be the west eyewall. And right on cue it is getting windy and rainy again. We were in a lull sitting right in what almost appears to be the eye.

Now that being said, this thing has had some really weird things going on with the eye almost from the start. At times it seemed to have had multiple eyes. Or maybe little eyes within a larger eye.

I just wonder if whatever circulation is moving south, (and there is a circulation going SSW) can hit the gulf and try to form or re-form into something. Just something to think about.
