It's surprised a lot of experts. Even two days ago it was predicted to possibly reach category 3. Now it's a 5 and bearing down on New Orleans. The last time that city took a direct hit by a hurricane was 1965 with Betsy, a category 3... and it's looking like Katrina could be stronger at landfall than even Camille.
If you get a chance, this coverage will be amazing. The city will be like Venice, with police boats operating around-the-clock. The storm will also blow in "funk" from the swamps, including critters like 'gators, snakes and rats. This storm will be historic, so watch if you can.
And Godspeed to my friends in New Orleans.
Side note: Nine people were killed by Katrina in southern Florida... SIX of them by falling trees. Doesn't that seem strange to you?
I'm happy to say one of my vehicles is now in the garage. Yesterday I spent most of the day breaking down boxes, organizing shelves and moving shit. And by shit, of course I mean SHIT. Stuff I'll never again need, but for some reason moved with me.
I have a nice mower, gas string trimmer, electric trimmer, leaf blower, gas edger, hedge trimmer... which all need a home. If you're in the area and need any of these items, let me know. I'm in a selling mood.
Also a washer and dryer. Come one, come all!
I was just watching a Sudafed commercial on television... the one where the cashier is directing everyone to aisle five.
The commercial is outdated now in some areas, where Sudafed sales is restricted. At Walgreens in my area you must sign with the phramacist for Sudafed, and you're only allowed 2 boxes a day. Sudafed is a primary ingredient in meth, so this is an effort to control production in the area.
Sudafed should probably change it's commercial.
This headline is just shocking.
Hip-hop mogul 'Suge' Knight shot in Miami Beach
You could knock me over with a feather. A hip-hop person involved in a shooting?? That's just hard to believe. These are law abiding, decent people.
