Thoughts and prayers

My thoughts and prayers are going out to all victims of Hurricane Gustav. Luckily Gustav was only a SS-2 storm when it made landfall west of New Orleans yesterday… damage, from what I’ve heard, appears to be minimal and flooding has been due to heavy rainfall and not as a result of systemic failures in the levee system…

The eastern seaboard of the US is now holding its breath for two troublesome spots: Tropical Storm/Hurricane Hanna and Tropical Storm Ike. Per National Hurricane Center official forecast, Ike appears to be making a beeline to the Bahamas and any forecasting beyond that would be purely speculative venture. Hanna, on the other hand, seems to be parked over the Bahamas, wobbling before setting about on its predicted path, which, per NHC forecast, is towards the SC coast, potentially as a major hurricane. I have doubts about the forecast strength of Hanna, as it looks like it’s still undergoing significant shearing in its northern quadrants.

The RNC is going to get rolling today, taking yesterday off to show “solidarity” with citizens being affected by Hurricane Gustav… and getting them off the hook of having W speak. Incidentally, over the roar of Gustav coverage, news broke yesterday that Sarah Palin’s 17-year old daughter is pregnant and will be marrying the child’s father….
