I'm concerned about New Orleans and Louisiana overall with Hurricane Ida.  From what I understand it's entering as a No. 4.  Haven't been following closely enough though.  Any updates?  And don't know about where it's supposed to go from here.  :(  How are other states/areas fairing?

     I've been livestreaming it on YT. It's pretty bad south and west of New Orleans around Houma and Thibodaux. It was drifting northwest but now it's just sitting there.

Thank you for the information.  I'm trying to catch up now via CNN.  I saw something earlier about the Mississippi River actually flowing backwards at one point!

Fantastic morning and cloud scenery here on a rarely frequented beach on Møn island. The water is still fine for swimming, following prolonged summer warmth. The hills in the far background belong to famous white cliffs.

A local businessman is planning a very big holiday park in this rather pristine area that just has farms and fields, causing a lot of local uproar. They've put up signs saying 'tourists welcome, holiday factories not'. Political decision-makers seem to be benefitting from larger municipality units, that make local protests less important, but we'll see.

Denmark currently experiencing a short-lasting storm with some hurricane-like winds of 30 m/s, much to the enjoyment of local dare-devil kite surfers at Klitmøller "Cold Hawaii' and Nørre Vorupør coastal villages - at their BIGAIR gathering, allegedly with flights reaching 30 m altitude and 200 m between splashes into the ocean ...

I had to work outdoors today in Copenhagen, but the winds weren't really dramatic, and only 20 m/s. Just 11 days ago it was still possible to swim comfortably in the sea at Møn island, now the colder autumn is here and the days are surely getting shorter.

Strangely enough, it was surprisingly windy here for a while today too.  Those are scary heights and distances!  I saw this article not terribly long ago.  Sometimes things don't always go well:  https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/25/us/kite-surfer-dies-fort-lauderdale-home/index.html   :(

Happy fall to all by the way...except for those south of the equator....in which case "Happy Spring"!

Yes, I'm a bit amazed about the unworried press coverage here too. Some of the daredevils are teenagers. Apparently nothing went wrong today, though.

And a nice Autumn (or last part of 2021 :) ) to everyone from here too.

Glad that all went well.  The gentleman who died in Florida was in his 50's.

And thanks (re autumn/seasonal wishes) too!
