Katrina's edge in Pensacola

I spoke to TGOO. He was up at 4AM, checking the winds. All is well inland in Pensacola. He said the local weatherman said something along the lines of, "After enduring the winds of Ivan and Dennis, Katrina will not prove impressive to us... although the storm surge certainly will be impressive!"

TGOO and Mom did lose power for an hour last night as some yahoo down the street decided to chop down a tree in preparation for Katrina and in so doing, took down a power line. Gotta love the idiots.

So while Mississippi and SE La take a beating, other than the beach on Pensacola, the folks of Pensacola will be fine. TGOO actually expects they won't lose power. What trees they have left have been cut way way back.

Good to hear your parents will be safe.

My mom (in Louisiana) appears to be out of harm's way; however, where she is now there is always the threat of tornadoes from these storms.

I heard this morning (Fox) they are fearing a tusanmi like wave hitting NO. With the waves hitting 50ft on the back side NO is screwed.

I talked with my oldest sister just a few minutes ago. She lives out near Pace. She said they have had TS force winds all day and the power went out about 8 this morning and just came back on. She lost what was left of her trees. Haven't been able to get in contact with the rest of my family.

Oh, yeah. She said Hwy 90 between Pensacola and Pace is washed out again.
