    Here's hoping it's not another Katrina....doesn't appear to be (Ida's only a Cat 2), but it's better to be safe than sorry.

    I'm glad to see Gov. Jindal being prepared early. Having just lost our home and most of our stuff in the GA flood zone, my heart and prayers are with the folks in Ida's path.

    It's horrible to live through this...but as long as you have your health and your lives, you can rebuild. I hope we don't have others joining us as a result of this storm.

    Good move, Gov. Jindal. Don't wait until it's too late.

    the gulf waters are fairly cool. I don't think this will pack too much of a punch. Hope not.

    Happily looking forward to December 1 and the end of Hurricane season.

    Hopefully with NO major landfalling hurricanes this year.

    Having gone through Katrina (well up to 24 hours before landfall and then from January 06 on), I hope Jindal is more competent than Blanco if the the worst happens (God forbid).

    LOL


    On a serious note. Here is hoping that Nagen's navy is out of the parking lot and ferrying people to high ground this time around.
