Doesn't look too bad. I lived in Melbourne Beach (just south of Cocoa) for 12 years and have been through quite a few. As long as you're not in a trailer it's actually kind of exciting. Power outages can get old fast though.

See you at the beach!! Haha! There's a few times surf buddies dragged me out to Playlenda Beach to surf during the Hurricain. I never could get past all the white water, I don't know how they did.

Haha, I was just working on a promo for the weather channel called "It could happen tomorrow." One of the lines in the promo was: "What if a category 5 hurricane slammed into New Orleans?"

 

How much you wanna bet that line gets cut?

What is that I saw, like 100,000 people holed up in the Superdome? With no air conditioning and only the food you brought in your own Coleman, all while the water slowly rises inside the building to make the playing field a six foot deep lake?

 

There are 144 hopefully functional bathrooms. That's like 700 people per bathroom if everyone needs just one visit (good luck with that), and god let that be 144 bathrooms with multiple toilets, not just 144 toilets total.

 

I've never been happier with our little 30-second-long earthquakes.

I think this thread won't be any fun 10 hours from now. (and that will certainly keep me from making bad "katrina and te waves" jokes)

Fortunately it's been downgraded to a category 4 hurricane. Hopefully it won't be as bad as expected. Good luck!

Our prayers go out to Amydot, mograph member located in lower Alabama.

We hope Amy evacuated or at least she's in a safe place right now.

this took a turn for the worse... good luck to everybody and all the familes that are stuck in new orleans and surounding areas, never expected this, never really expected it to hit miami as hard as it did.

Hurricanes are actually quite nice for North Dakota (and the upper Midwest in general). They push warm air northward, typically with lots of moisture for precipitation. Helps keep that nasty metric Canadian air where it belongs, eh.

Unbelieveable!!!

 

Over 50 people are dead and the numbers will continue to rise.

And you're happy to have a few days of warm rainy weather?

 

Clintvideo - the cold you're feeling is coming from within.

This song goes through my mind every time I turn on the news (pre-Zep original by Kansas Joe McCoy--just saw it on digby.blogspot.com and found I'm not the only one who can't get it out of my head):

 

 

If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break

And the water gonna come in, have no place to stay

 

Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan

Thinkin' 'bout my baby and my happy home

 

If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break

And all these people have no place to stay

 

Now look here mama what am I to do

I ain't got nobody to tell my troubles to

 

I works on the levee mama both night and day

I ain't got nobody, keep the water away

 

Oh cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do no good

When the levee breaks, mama, you got to lose

 

I works on the levee, mama both night and day

I works so hard, to keep the water away

 

I had a woman, she wouldn't do for me

I'm goin' back to my used to be

 

I's a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan

Gonna leave my baby, and my happy home

That's funny because at this very moment, supposedly, someone here is trying to clear that song for use on a "pod" about NOLA's levees.

Since I already ripped off half the post at Digby, here's the rest, about a woman who talks to a New Orleans fortune-teller Sunday.

 

"I called Mama Marisol, got her on her

cell phone. She had her crystal ball in the

front seat, and she was 'leavin-leavin, cher.'

 

Heading up Basin Street past St. Louis 1, she saw all

the skeletons sitting on top of their tombs, rolling their

bones and readin' em, shakin' their heads at her.

 

This won't end well."
