I was really hoping it wouldn’t turn out this way, but it’s almost certain the MS Gulf Coast is going to take a direct hit from Nate.

The good news is that it’s flying (moving at 26 mph per the 10am advisory) and that the hurricane force winds don’t stretch out very far. The bad news is that it’s now projected to be a Cat. 2 by landfall tonight.

I know other areas have had it way worse this year, but it still sucks that we’re in the path of one. By the time Nate comes in it will mean every Gulf Coast state has been majorly effected by a landfalling hurricane.

Thankfully with us being an hour inland my family and I should be ok, but I feel bad for those further south.
