Hurricane Katrina Now Category 5

Hurricane Katrina was just updated to a Category 5, with winds of 160 mph, and it’s heading straight for New Orleans.

The people in the path of the storm need lots of prayers right now, and they’ll need lots of assistance once the storm is past. It’s a relief here in Alabama just to worry about losing power. I can’t imagine having to deal with 15′ – 25′ storm surge.

This is named storm #11 in a hurricane season that doesn’t usually heat up till later in the year. What is going on? It couldn’t possibly be some kind of global climate change, could it? Pat Robertson would probably say it’s God’s punishment on the perverts in New Orleans and the gamblers in Biloxi.

    We have a friend who is evacuating. I hope you are safe!

    I hope your friend gets out okay. We should be fine here; I’m guessing we’ll get lots of rain, and if history is any indication, our power will go out for no discernible reason.

    Do you think you’ll get any bad weather where you are (I don’t know where you are — this might be a really stupid question)?

    I’m in Maine! So although it’s breezy here today, I don’t think it’s related to Katrina in any way. Thanks for asking, and I hope your power will remain with you.

    Maine sounds heavenly, especially when it’s 90+ degrees here and we’re expecting a power outage. Maybe we’ll get lucky this time. I just hope the people who are stuck in New Orleans survive. They are all being sent to the Superdome.
