The first rain band hit my house about ten minutes ago. No wind over maybe ten MPH. I did minimal preparation since this one is not supposed to be very strong - we already had plenty of emergency supplies from the last couple of storms that missed us.
One very annoying thing about Nate is that the two rivers that I like to fish had just got back down to where I like them, after four months of high water. This storm will probably get them high again. Good luck in Mississippi!
Hey Mel, hope y'all are doing okay with the storm. Being in the central Panhandle, we've only had a few light showers. There was a tornado down in Bay County earlier. Maybe the rivers won't rise too much and mess up your fishin'. Treefarmer

It is plumb miserable here in Marietta, GA. A constant downpour with a driving wind. I just went to Wal-Mart and sat in the parking lot for about 20 minutes hoping for a break. I finally just gave up and came back home. Mate is a bother.

Sorry to read about your power, Larry, and the downpour, Greg. It is kind of strange, but at my place near the Alabama/Mississippi line not a lot happened with Nate. Some wind that brought down a few trees, and a few hours of intermittent rain, some heavy. It has not rained a drop since before dawn, and just a little breezy. I think we were right at the edge of the really heavy rain.
Here what happened to my favorite river. Notice how the water went from about 3.8 feet to 13.8 feet real quick.
The spectacular Sunup's. Only one of the many things I will miss when my move is complete. For perspective Portland International is near right edge in the top photo(approx.150 degrees) maybe 75 miles direct. The right edge of the bottom photo is very near due south(180 degrees). moss
It has been a few days since anyone posted here but today we had a record high of 88º this afternoon. My air conditioner ran off and on during the day and I am back in shorts and a tee. Deer season opens tomorrow and I am sure the hunters are moaning and groaning about the heat.

I'll give this post a kick, in the 60's here in the panhandle of Ne. yesterday but windy! we will have all of our kids and grandkids here for Thanksgiving and it's supposed to be nice, thank God. Our oldest son is in the snow removal business in south Denver and if it storms he wouldn't make it. This is a big deal for my wife, because she plans on giant meal and it's good! So hope everyone has a good turkey day, Terry
