The bulk of Ida is hitting Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL. And although Pensacola isn't so far from here, I guess because Ida isn't real big, we'll miss most of it.
So we'll see through the night, when she makes landfall in the wee hours.
I did get to the beach after sundown (about 5:15PM) and snapped these. As the Gulf is usually smooth (and the "natives" call it "the lake") waves about eight feet are substantial. But I didn't have much luck capturing them at their height (click to enlarge):
Having slept only five hours last night, arising to catch Ida's progress and decide whether to stay or leave, I'm fading. Time for a movie in bed.....that is until I fall asleep in ten minutes.
