Strong opinions, weakly held

Hurricane Katrina

I’m much obsessed with hurricane Katrina today (and have been since I learned yesterday that it had gone from being a category 1 storm to category 5 while I wasn’t paying attention.) The good news this morning is that the storm seems to have turned northeast a bit and will probably not hit New Orleans directly, thus sparing the city at least some destruction. (You can see in this satellite photo that if it continues moving due north it will come ashore in Mississippi.)

I come from the Gulf Coast, so an obsession with hurricanes is my birthright. The two things we always wondered about were when a really big storm was going to hit my home town, and when a really big storm was going to destroy New Orleans. Hopefully the answer to both questions will remain, “Not yet.”
