Good Riddance to T.S. Gordon!

Posted by Jody on September 5, 2018

“Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best.” That’s a rather common saying in Southern Mississippi. The traumas of Hurricane Camille and Hurricane Katrina are seared into the memories of our long-term coastal residents. Those were the worst!

Yesterday, in Harrison County, we prepared for the worst. Last night we got the best. Tropical Storm Gordon came ashore much farther east than had been expected.  We experienced moderate breezes, no rain, and (as far as we can tell) no measurable storm surge. The storm has already been downgraded to a tropical depression but the rains to come may mean flooding for some up north. Here, we will hope for the best for everyone in its path.

Greg and I headed out to the beach this morning as soon as curfew was lifted to see what we could see.

To the west, we saw the sunrise through the remaining rain bands:

The rain bands had also wrapped around to our east.

Good Morning!

Gooooood Morning, Gulfport!

There were a few more seashell fragments on shore than most mornings. Our seashells are generally oyster shells. Univalves found on our shores are almost always perfect homes to hermit crabs.


A few more seashell bits than usual.

Clearly, more happened over the water than on land in Gulfport, Mississippi. We found this navigational marker in the surf and reported it to the Harbor Master’s office.

Many thanks to everyone for your kind thoughts and caring words.

We are safe and sound!
