    As a meteo guy... I don't like this kind of talk. Weather gets turned political way to often (on both sides of the aisle).

    Note: Global Warming/Climate Change are not weather, that is climate.

    All I think Caslon meant was the Gustav is an awfully timely reminder of how well the Rs dealt with Katrina. That was actually the turning point of public opinion.

    Of course, learning lessons is a part of life. While we won't forget the tragedy of Katrina - W has already declared a national emergency. Here in KY they have already prepared for over 5,000 displaced families and are awaiting their arrival in the event it necessary.

    I have a feeling they are going to be celebrating Decadence in New Orleans until about 12 hours before Gustav makes landfall.

    I don't think I sound stupid, but I really didn't explain myself well.

    A hurricane making landfall on Manhattan is over due, the last major one in the NY area was Donna:

    NY is over due, much like New Orleans had been before Katrina and Gustav (This now brings them back to their average of one every five years)


    Earthquakes, as some posted elsewhere, are also over due along the east coast.

    Tonados, all of NY state gets about 7 per year, these are mostly consintrated in extreme upstate NY, NYC and Long Island.

    Never been to New Orleans. I feel sorry for all the people who have to leave their homes, must be an unbelievable experience to have to leave, not knowing what you will find when you return.

    Hurricane Gloria followed roughly the same track as Donna in 1985.

    Do'h when I first started looking I was looking for Gloria in the 60s, but couldn't find her- and instead got Donna, and was really confused, but assumed I was trying to think too much to early on a Sunday. Still leaves NY overdue, they should get a storm once every 20 years or so.

    Already close to 200 people landed in Louisville yesterday due to the evacuation. We're taking food and clothing to the shelters today. I can't imagine being uprooted like that. We will not make them feel like they are alone this go'round. I ask that you all do what you can to help.

    Has Pat Robertson made his statement that Gustav is God's wrath against homosexuals yet? He seems a bit overdue on this one.icon_lol.gif
