    Tempers must be high sitting in that traffic. Can't believe tomorrow will be exactly 16 years from the day of Katrina and now this storm is hitting. Crazy.

    Well the Gulf needed a hurricane to churn the water. A big dead spot was developing.

    I think this is a win for the fishes.

    It’s looking more and more like the eye is going to pass to the west of NOLA. Not a good thing!
