Hurricane Katrina did a number on South Florida as you well know. But it’s nothing compared to what’s going to happen when it hits New Orleans. If you can, think about making a donation to the charity of your choice. Robert at Interstate4Jamming has a list of organizations and links to them where you can go and make a donation.
Here’s a link to the New Orleans Times-Picayune which is keeping up with the storm and the story.
I’m going to keep this post on top for the rest of the day and update as necessary.
Update – 7:37 p.m. It looks like New Orleans missed the worst of it, but still — it wasn’t a late summer zephyr that passed through the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, and the Elysian Fields. And of course this will effect gas prices and anything else that comes through one of the largest shipping ports in the country. Brace yourself.
