Hurricane Gustav

We won't really know where it's going until it gets in the Gulf of Mexico, but it's a formidable storm. I'll go out late tonight to get some supplies, but I'm not getting groceries since I lost so much (freezer) during Katrina.
My car is full of gas and I've made arrangements to head out of town tomorrow if it looks like it will come towards Mobile. We're under the gun untilll further notice.

Thanks VP.. All things considered, I won't leave. I'm not getting on the interstate and sit in traffic unless they say it's going to hit here, or very close. Then I really begin to worry.
I think we will know in the morninig.

Stay safe.

This is getting really scary for the Gulf Coast. It is similar to Katrina in that has gone from Category 3 to now being projected to be Category 5 so quickly.

Well, at least you don't have to worry about watering your lawn for awhile ....

Where exactly are you located?

The radar images look terrifying. Good luck to you Sue and everyone else in its path.

I'm supposed to be in NO in October to help with some reconstruction. I wonder if this will still happen.

Best of luck to you and your family. Gustav will be a hell of alot more destructive than Fay, which hit my part of town a week or so ago. Gustav even sounds like one of those mustache-twirling villains trying to fuck shit up on the railroad tracks.

They are evacuating New Orleans now. I wonder if they'll use the Superdome as a shelter again? The Saints are supposed to play there next Sunday.

Mobile, Alabama.
About 60 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. I'm about 10 miles west from Mobile Bay which feeds in from the Gulf.

I believe I've heard them state they will not use it again because of how poorly that went during Katrina.
