Just learned that the Mayor of New Orleans has ordered a mandatory evacuation as a category-five hurricane, Katrina, bears down. I'll be thinking of all of my friends down there! (Marrus, might as well just head for Atlanta now! :-\)
What a concept... I-10 has been set up so all of the lanes head away from the city. I hope no one is trying to get down there to pick someone up or whatever. Detours must be clogged.
(I'm drinking from my Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop go cup in your honour!)
