I know - I meant today's path is right for NOLA, but Gustav could landfall anywhere along the coast. Remember Elena? Nothing in the Gulf is set in stone. Although I got caught in Pensacola during Opal and that particular storm did make a beeline toward poor Pensy the whole way up from the bottom of the Gulf. It was a single minded storm!

No tryin' to reason with hurricane season!

Thanks Melisende.

And you're right Leyland. So far it looks a little bad for us but not a direct hit. Still, we shall see.

[quote=""Rowan""]Nah. It's too early to say for certain where it's going. If NOAA is saying that path is written in stone, then they should be banned from forecasting. Still, we have a plan to head to Atlanta if necessary.[/quote]


I hope that the hurricane doesn't affect you. Sometimes I feel very blessed that I don't have to worry about hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes etc etc!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hope New Orleans doesn't get hit by Gustav, Rowan. Stay safe.
(Give me earthquakes any day over hurricanes, blizzards, ice storms and tornadoes!)

Am going to do my best. Am hoping - as we all are - that it shifts more to the west. I hate wishing such devistation on another city, but we are not ready for this. *sigh*

Glad you're here Rowan. I, too, would have difficulty coming up with new books to read.
