As I worked for SSA all my circuits were initially AT&T "long lines" circuits and later they were part of the FTS (Federal Telecommunications System) but were still AT&T.
At one time I worked in a Long Distance Switch and at first we had lots of analog circuits, then they came out with the T1 digital and it was a lot easier. Went outside in the Data department and most of the work was lining up those analog data circuits to the customers premise.

It does look like the track is headed for Louisiana. Fortunately they do not expect it to gain much wind strength. I did hear that they closed flood gates in New Orleans. If it does hit there it may dump a lot of rain.
We have had sprinkles and brief showers today in the Orlando area; but mostly we have had sunshine.
Not much around New Orleans. Small shower this AM but been sunny and hot all day. There is one small band of showers just to the East but most of it is sliding North. At 4pm the NHC stopped tracking it since it has mostly deteriorated.

I used to hate hurricanes when I lived in Florida. Especially back in 2004, when Hurricane Charley, Francis, and Ivan (among others) hit us. While it was certainly not fun missing electricity for a few months (my mom estimated 2 months or so total without power), it was interesting to look out a window that wasn't boarded up and seeing the rain and wind.

I hope anyone down there is doing alright. I know it gets very bad down there.

Hurricanes are something that someone that lives in Florida (and other areas along the gulf) must contend with. I used to live in Kansas City, Mo and that was in "Tornado Alley" and had to contend with them in the spring. Other areas are floods, earthquakes, etc. Seems no matter where you live there is something to contend with, at least with a Hurricane you have enough warning to "get out of Dodge" if needed. With a Tornado many times there isn't any warning or only a very short warning.

Well said.

@Prisoner. Yes, 2004 was a rough year in Florida. I went through four hurricanes that year.

Another One to Watch

Here is the next one to watch. In about five days it is projected to run into some shear which may weaken the system, but that is a long way out. Also it is moving so fast it may self destruct.
