Been watching a little TV; playing a little catch-up.
Baton Rouge is expected to sustain 50-75 mph winds. The eye should be making landfall in the next hour and a half to two hours. She's coming.
Shelters are full, as well as hotels all the way over to West Baton Rouge Parish, and as far out west as Lafayette to Texas - and just about everything in-between.
The wind is picking up here. It's pretty steady, though nothing terrible, with some gusts, I'd say around 10-20 mph at times.
One more hour 'til Baret can come home (his 12-hour shift ends at 6am). We're both hoping they won't need him to stay, or the weather won't stop him from leaving.
I haven't seen Gia, though I keep calling reassurances out to her, and Jo is still very restless - sometimes meowing and giving me a questioning look. He can't seem to decided where he wants to park himself and is mostly roaming around the house. They're aware something is up; I've read animals can sense a hurricane coming.
Of course the big fear is tornadoes. I've had recurring nightmares my entire life of being chased by tornadoes - usually on a particular highway in my hometown. I'm terrified of tornadoes. I can handle the rest - just don't let me have to live through a twister. -shudder-
