On Hold

Wishing and hoping and thinking and praying on the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's landfall.

The long holiday weekend looms ahead. It will not be a relaxing one thanks to Gustav and Hanna, the newest arrival on the tropical weather scene. Juannie and I will decide on Saturday evening whether or not we are packing up and shipping out to Jackson. In the meantime, I am gathering up insurance paperwork and making lists in my head of what we will need to have with us if we leave.

I'll be thinking of you this weekend, and hoping that everything turns out alright.

Thank you! The weather right now is hot but quite lovely. Hard to believe we'll be facing big rains and winds in a few days.

Thanks Lisa! We are trying to be patient as Mother Nature takes her time deciding on the activity in the Gulf of Mexico.

Maybe Some Good News for Us
Check out this link... Shows that many of the tracks have shifted further westward with the closest one to us going through Baton Rouge. Three services are now showing landfall in Texas which was not the case when I checked this morning.

Re: Maybe Some Good News for Us
On the news they just said it was coming right at us, and it's not just the westbank anymore, that's what nagin said anyway:(

Re: Maybe Some Good News for Us
Carl Arredondo just showed that the National Hurricane Center track (which is the median of all the tracks) has shifted westward closer to Lafayette. I think Nagin and the parish presidents are presenting the worst possible scenario because they have to prepare for that. Here's another link that shows even more tracks and these have shifted west as well. Things are still in flux, of course, so I'm not breathing a sigh of relief just yet.

Hope your shoeboxes are in good, working order. I'll be flapping my arms wildly up here in Alabama. According to chaos theory that should shred the hurricane apart. I think.

The shoo-box is in fine form and the candles are lit. I'm somewhat heartened by the fact that many of the projections are moving landfall further west toward Texas. I don't wish this on anyone but we are still not ready for a Cat 1 much less a Cat 3/4 here.
