I'm glad to hear that New Orleans still exists. Still a bad situation for those in the city and also Mississippi and Alabama particularly. Thinking of you all.

I don't think it will be too bad, verte. It's already a Cat-1, and is decreasing in intensity by the minute. Hell, it might even be a TS by the time it gets to Birmingham. Stay positive and safe.

Well, it's late in the afternoon and we stiill have our power. I hope we can keep it. The wind is terrible, we are under a severe storm warning, but I hope we can keep our power at the very least.

I was watching Good Morning America earlier this morning, around 11:30 maybe 15-20 mins after the worst of the storm was leaving NE, and they showed some kid out doing his version of extreme sports sliding around on a dmaged roof on his duff, and being buffeted by the wind. WAS HE NUTS????
I know! I'm seeing people just meandering about the beach right before the storm came in, and seeing people surfing and whatnot, and I'm like, "You guys are idiots!" Seriously, am I weird? When severe weather's coming, I prefer to be indoors, and safe, not outside testing my luck. I guess that's not a common thought among people .

Scary picture of the Superdome's roof there .

More s for verte and other Southerners. It's good to know the storm is rapidly weakening, though...and I'm very happy to hear that New Orleans is still intact . My sister said she saw a clip on TV of some sign up on a building right before Katrina came in, and it said, "Please pray for New Orleans". She thought that was rather eerie, considering how, the way everyone was talking before Katrina came ashore, New Orleans would apparently no longer exist after this or whatever.

But thank god that it looks as though for the most part, they're all right. Hopefully the same will be said for the rest of you *Crosses fingers*.

Apparently the outer bands are causing tornadoes over here in Atlanta...my mom said about 30 homes were supposedly destroyed just 20 minutes from here.

I've been hearing rumors on weather sites of terrible destruction in Lousiana and Miss. that largely isn't being covered because it's impossible to get into the devastated areas. Hope the rumors turn out to be untrue.

They were showing the first overhead shots of New Orleans earlier...everything was underwater and they said that wasn't even the worst parts.
