Posted on 08/28/2005 2:38:16 PM PDT by NautiNurse
Extremely dangerous Hurricane Katrina is bearing down on the North Central Gulf of Mexico and New Orleans metro area. Thousands of people did not evacuate New Orleans. Outer bands of Katrina are reaching the Louisiana coast.
Due to the size and intensity of this storm, all interests in the North Gulf of Mexico should be in their safe locations.

Thanks for doing such a wonderful job with the live threads, NN!
Shep sounds worried, albeit even scared for himself.
A sentimental memory from our last (ever?) visit to NO, Christmas 2005.
Thank you for your dedication keeping these threads. You're providing an invaluable service and I appreciate it and know that others do as well.
Lucky number 13?
It took him long enough...
