Hope it does not turn on you like Sally did away from N.O. and towards the Redneck Riviera.
She really caused a mess.

We finished our work with the rig and went back to port last night. Currently were 30 miles from the center of the storm. Were still getting hammered out here. Sustained 45 knot winds with 25 foot seas. The problem is the wind and waves are at our bow and SLOWING US DOWN. Our normal speed is 12 knots and were only making 3.5, the storm is moving faster than our speed so for every hour were at sea the storm gets closer to us. It took us almost 8 hours to go 25 miles. Rain and wind hammering us all night. Only got a couple hours of sleep last night cause were rolling constant 15 degrees with occasional 25 degree. I'm seasick and feel terrible. Hold onto your butts boys, this one is nothing to full around with.

The update shows it hitting as a hurricane entering around matagorda bay, stalling then heading up the coast line.

“ coastal areas potentially seeing 6 to 12 inches between later Sunday and Thursday. That much rain over four days is manageable, so our concerns are very high rainfall rates—which tropical storms produce—and higher than anticipated totals. We can’t rule out some 20-inch bullseyes, but so far there’s not much support for this in our best models. I think the bottom line is that we need to prepare for heavy rainfall through Wednesday or so of next week, and the possibility of flash flooding. But it may not come to that.”

I think a lot of areas can handle that. 12" over 4 or 5 days has happened without a hurricane.

The staying on the coast,in warm water and beating up coastal towns is the worry

Were currently servicing the Shell Perdido platform in the direct path of the storm. Already having 25 knot winds with 5-7 foot seas and slowly increasing as it gets closer. Nothing to crazy yet but were hoping to get out of here tonight. Fingers crossed!





Stay safe out there. We were in the same boat three weeks ago with Laura. We crew changed a couple days early and able to make it off. Our reliefs were not to happy.

If it goes into Matagorda, would this be the first since Hurricane Carla in 1961? In 43 years I’ve never witnessed a hurricane, just a few dink tropical storms.

Claudette remained a tropical storm until just before making landfall in Port O'Connor, Texas, when it quickly strengthened to a strong Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. On Matagorda Island, the local weather station measured winds of 75 mph (121 km/h)—the only official report of hurricane-force winds along the coastline. However, several offshore oil rigs reported winds of up to 90 mph (140 km/h), and one unofficial reading in Seadrift indicated winds of 96.6 mph (155.5 km/h).

The 55 mph S's are a lot better than the 1,2,3's,. Get the rain coats and boats ready, we'll just have to watch out for flooding and tornadoes. Going to mess up opening weekend of bow season along the middle to upper gulf coast. Not the end of the world but heck we've already had our flood allotment. Just how many 500 year storms are you allowed in a decade. SMH.

Edit: Right now I guess we're seeing why our coastline is shaped like it is.
