Well, we are now out of the dreaded cone of error for Hurricane Ike’s path. Today was the first time in weeks I can say that people around me were relaxed and normal. You still have to be leery of the thing until it lands in some poor place. I feel bad for anybody in its way. We should take the time to send regards and help if you can to the folks in South Louisiana,
This may be an interesting weekend. All the refugees from

Actually if you go over the I-10 high rise and look to your right you can still see two of them they are trying to remove because they went too far out of the normal water level. Those big ass things can knock a levee down easy.
