Tonight has been better than last night. I don’t know why, but then sometimes it’s best not to question these things too hard.
My evening has pretty much been dominated by the big, fuck-off storm heading for New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina is due to make landfall in the next few hours and it is a fierce one. Its category 5, which is as high as the scale goes. It’s the worst storm in a very long time.
People will probably die, though they have evacuated something like 3 million residents. Someone I work with is there, though he says he’s got a safe place to be. I hope so.
Where this storm will impact is economically. It will do massive damage to everything. It will also drive the cost of petrol up, up, up!
Here’s the warning from the local weather centre in New Orleans, and it’s one of the scariest I’ve ever read:
