Better hurry up and make this joke before that changes.
As you can see by looking at Entergy's outage map there are over 60,000 plus people in Orleans Parish alone without the ability to see the GOP Convention on TV right now so... thank you for that, Isaac.
Other than that there's not much to report. We're hunkering as hard as we can possibly hunker right now. Every now and then the wind blows pretty hard and everybody goes, "Ooooh" and whatnot. NOPD is driving by regularly with lights flashing in order to "show presence" Here they are momentarily hunkering at the laundromat.
Isaac, meanwhile, is just kind of sitting there. In fact I'm just seeing WWLTV report that it has moved back offshore for the moment. So we're in for an extended period of hurricane force winds, lots and lots of rain, and probably more surge.
All in all the storm has turned out to be a much more serious event than we anticipated this week. But it's still well within the bounds of what South Louisiana should expect to periodically deal with. If the power stays on, I'll try to update later on.
