Hurricane Gustav: Yikes!

I've been looking at Hurricane Gustav. Right now it still hasn't made landfall in Hispaniola, but it's already made Category 1 and has a whole big, hot Gulf of Mexico in front of it. Given how flat-footed Katrina caught me, I just thought... what if?

So I'll be keeping an eye on this one. The gulf of Mexico is hot, right at 86F (you can look at this at http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/dsdt/cwtg/egof_tmap.html). Let's hope for the best! But one piece of advice: if you have to evacuate, don't just bring an extra shirt and your guitar like I did.

  1. Dude, you can't imagine. It's like a giant, angry dog in the room that won't stop pacing and looking at you. This will be the first major storm in the Gulf since 2005, and we all feel it. For some reason it seems inevitable that one would come back and finish the job.
