The Nightmare Begins

As of 2pm EDT, Hurrican Gustav hit Category 4.  With the storm making more of a northward movement than the models predicted, the landfall line is starting to move eastwards again.  And with the forecast after the storm passes Cuba having it becoming Category 5, we are now officially in a Katrina redux mode.  Meaning all hell is about to break loose again along the Louisiana/Mississippi/Alabama/Florida Pandhandle coastline.

Three years ago, Katrina roared ashore.  Now, Gustav is looking like he's going to do the same.  After this one, the Gulf Coast is never going to be the same again, guaranteed.

Not sure your situation, but I hope the sneaux meaux has beet feet the hell out of N.O.

She is officially leaving tomorrow morning. She and another friend are heading northwards towards Vicksburg in Mississippi.

Meanwhile, I've seen the latest model plots. The NHC is going to have to make a hard decision, and move that projected path EASTWARDS toward the mouth of the Mississippi. I expect that by 10pm. I'm still betting on landfall in Mississippi, east of Biloxi.

Me, I'll be fine, we'll be far enough away from the eye and will see some tropical storm winds. But it's going to be touch and go the whole weekend.

Slightly better for New Orleans, but that means Biloxi is about to get raped all over again instead. Yeesh.
