Looks like it wasn't as bad as Katrina. Just hope that those levees hold, some of them looked a little strained on the news.

Luckily, it was a less powerful storm and New Orleans was better prepared. Let us see what this does to the Republican Convention.
Cori, I wish I had a solution for the hurricanes.
Re: Hurricane Gustav by Ellerd on 2 September 2008 2:23pm
Cori, perhaps we could transport giant chunks of Arctic ice and drop them in the Atlantic Ocean off Africa. The polar ice caps are melting anyway, may as well put them to good use. ;-)

Doesn't look like much relief in sight. Hanna should get a wriggle on now that Gustav is in his final hours; Ike is lurking out there; and a new hurricane is forming out near the Cape Verde Islands. Hopefully these three will be a little kinder to North America than Gustav was...

Do you know any scientists/politicians with an environmental/scientific bent (Al Gore?) you could actually lobby, Cori?
Re: Hurricane Gustav by sighthound on 4 September 2008 12:58am
There are people working on that iceberg idea, Ellerd. Just saw something about it on the preview of an upcoming Dircovery Channel show.
Re: Hurricane Gustav by Ellerd on 4 September 2008 12:45pm
Really? And I was only joking - LOL! They're going to need a pretty big ice-cube! :-)

Maybe they should dump it in front of Hurricane Ike's path. Category 4 Ike is forecast to be sitting on top of the Bahamas by next week. With any luck, he'll disappear in the Bermuda Triangle...

It is paradise where I live, but I am getting very fatigued...
Re: Hurricane Gustav by mrsthing on 6 September 2008 10:18pm
Best of luck next week with Hurricane Ike, Cori.

Look like another hurricane (Ike) heading for the Gulf of Mexico again. Bloody 'ell!
