Holy Moly!

I am watching nonstop coverage of IKE pounding on my old home turf. All the images are so familiar to me. Had I still been a resident there, my ass would have been gone. I hope all my buds are gone. Even as far inland as I live now, we will be getting tropical storm level winds. That's enough to kill the power here. Even Gustav knocked out a lot of power last weekend. It's funny to listen to those weather channel people pronounce those Louisiana parish names. Most of them are derivatives of French and uncommon names. I cannot believe so many people chose to stay on Galveston Island.
