What makes you think central Louisiana?
Probably gonna be a cat 5 into central Louisiana.
but on the reality side,,,, with it's location and my timing,,, I expect landfall just south of the NC/SC border and a track straight through my house,,,
last time I went to Canada for Caribou (2007 - Quebec) Hurricane Humberto came in,,,, rain was all, but still Boss Lady (wife) wasn't impressed that I was off chasing animals for winter meat when a storm came,,,, since I head to Canada for Caribou (woodland this time) again in less than two weeks, that's about right for this Sam fellow to come roaring in,,,,
I am one week into an over seed. My irrigation will need a break next week! I will take it as long as there is no tropical wind!
Looks like a good potential for a flood every day this week in the Piedmont. Probably get another 5+ inches this week. The instant all the rivers and lakes settle back down it comes another monsoon or 3.
