Holy cow....

That's some hurricane.

Good luck to all of my New Orleans and Gulf Coast friends and acquaintances, as you get the hell out of Dodge.

I really worry about all the people who have no means to evacuate the city of New Orleans. They're being put up in the SuperDome apparently....but I have a feeling that if a 25 ft storm surge hits...the SuperDome isn't going to be very super after all.

UPDATE: My friend Jen called me from her car as she's evacuating. In 5 hours, she has managed to drive 14 miles. Her voicemail informed me that the radio station she was listening to for evacuation instructions, traffic information, etc. had taken a convenient station break for prayer. So she called me, instead.

I first found out about the severity of the storm from Fox News today. I wasn't sure what to believe. To their credit, they didn't blame it on the Clinton administration. Now that I've seen it reported by Flamingo, I know it's a Big Deal.

Seriously, I hope all of your friends are safe. Whatever you and Jen believe about the efficacy of prayer, I may just say one.
