On Saturday morning, I was worried that IT was going to kill tens of thousands, maybe tens of tens of thousands, and wipe out NO totally. I was making post after post about using military and other assets to get them out, now. On Sunday morning, I was in a veritable state of panic that goetterdamerung was at hand (cat 5, headed head on into NO), with still not real substantive reaction. And then the hand of God as it were, shot a breath of dry wind into the storm, weakening the monster and diverting it, and while NO is largely destroyed, and most everything under sea level will have to be bulldozed, the worst case scenario was averted - this time. "God" has warned us. We had better take heed. So says this near atheist.
Very well said.
