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.
