...HUMAN SUFFERING INCREDIBLE BY MODERN STANDARDS...
At least NOAA isn't sugar coating it.


BTW - My apartment in the French Quarter has a gabled roof, and it is typical of French Quarter buildings -- eaten up with formosan termites. I wonder if it will be there next Wednesday.

We moved from south Louisiana 2 weeks ago. Still have friends and family there. Best of luck to you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Just watched Jim Cantore on the Weather Channel.....there's no sugar-coating this one. I saw a lot of camera shots, I'm kind of disappointed at how many people I saw still there. The pressure's down to 902, winds continuing at 175+. I-10 is a parking lot.

Good luck everyone.

I hope everyone gets out on time. No way in hell I would ride this one out.
