Keep your fingers crossed for me guys.
I am waiting travel arrangements for a 15-20 day deployment down to the Gulf to work the disaster recovery.
It's gonna be craptastic! ;)
I think I'm going to Louisianna. I'll know for sure when they call with my travel orders.

Well if Gustav does become a major hurricane and direct hits NO you'd have to be brain dead to stay in the city. There is only 2 kinds of people who would stay, fucking idiots and looters in waiting. Oh, I take it back, there are 3 types of people. The third type is someone who lives in a part of the city that didn't flood the 1st time and wants to protect their property from types 1 and 2.
And as far as the levee's go, they could be built to take a CAT 5 and all it'd take is a barge busting loose and smashing into one and /BAM/ instant repeat of Katrina. Of course the DUmmies would say Lord Rove personally cut the lines but hey...:DMay the FORCE be with you!

That map shows landfall west of the city. No big deal. Even a head-on is doable. The path that Katrina took, just east of the city, is the killer. Bush, Obama, McCain, whoever; a hurricane just east of the city has it's rotation pushing Lake Pontchartrain into the city. That is a no-win for anyone.Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
