Gustav..."The storm of the Century"

The first "major" hurricane is making its way towards Louisiana again.

Gustav looks like it should hit sometime on Monday morning/afternoon

"Hurricane Gustav, which already killed more than 80 people in the Caribbean, strengthened quickly into a Category 4 and was poised to become a Category 5 storm, packing winds in excess of 156 mph. It slammed Cuba's tobacco-growing western tip before moving away from the island country into the Gulf of Mexico.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin used stark language to urge residents to get out of the city, calling Gustav the "storm of the century." "

Looks like I'm going to have to get CNN cued up and watch Anderson Cooper reporting on the hurricane!!

Getting out of Town

As much as I love hurricane season, you've got to hope that New Orleans gets spared. It's been 3 years since Katrina devastated New Orleans, and a direct hit from Gustav would cripple the city.
