Default Well, we're packing up.



I'm a little bit gun-shy after Katrina. I don't know where we're going, but I know we're going.

I appreciate the generous offer. And I'm serious about that.

Hopefully it won't get to that. It's just so damn hard to tell right now.

Isn't is supposed to make landfall on the 7 year anniversary? August 29th?

Crazy stuff, yeah I think I would pack it up too. Hopefully it makes a turn to the west and hits a lightly populated area of Mexico.

Maybe he wanted it to come to Canada instead? I didn't get it either!

N.O. is not looking good and they just said there is a high/low??? pressure are that will pull it north to northeast at some point so you can't count on it moving farther west. I think I would go west.

Honestly, that's a best case scenario. It will give those folks some relief from drought. In the mid-west, too.

If it keeps trending west, going west makes me real nervous. I think we may light out for atlanta tomorrow night.

We'll drive all night, but it's better than getting into contra-flow on tuesday. Everybody has to work tomorrow. Tuesday is when they will start moving. Tomorrow is the day to jump.

You are probably doing the right thing. I would imagine after the chaos of the last storm anyone with a brain cell would be getting the hell out of there.

Just canceled my reservations for the Bar Investigators conference in N.O. Good thing I didn't buy my airfare yet.

So has the Mayor of New Orleans ordered all school buses to stay in the storage lot yet?
