In every situation there are always at least a few idiots out and about. These two are representative of several who went swimming in the heavy surf, or who tried to “fly” in the high winds, or who otherwise proved that some people really are dumber than a box of rocks.

Every time I see pictures of people walking in flood waters I cringe. If someone has to go out in them to move to higher ground that is one thing. But if they are just walking around they are being very foolish. They are walking in sewage. yep E. Coli out the ying yang. I wonder if public health officials are going to discuss the possibility of epidemics.

Is that really the hurricane?

Apologies for the skepticism if it's real. It's just that I've seen similar pictures of non-hurricane clouds, roll clouds, I believe, that are passed off as hurricanes.

If it's real, it's a scary picture.

Found this interesting... from Rich Galen's Mullings column this morning:

In the September issue of Discover Magazine (regular Mullsters know I like to read Discover because it provides me science in single syllables), there is a "Discover Dialogue" with a meteorologist named Dr. William Gray whom the mag's editors say "may be the worlds most famous hurricane expert."

Discover is big on global warming and generally falls into the column supporting the notion that if George W. Bush would only support the Kyoto thing we would be worrying about an impending ice age starting about Columbus Day.

The issue of whether man-made global warming is causing this spate of hurricanes is part of the interview:

At the end of the interview Gray is asked if his position on man-made global-warming has influenced funding for his work:

Let's review the bidding: The most respected hurricane expert over the last half-century holds a view on global-warming which is contrary to conventional wisdom and so his research money was cut off by Al Gore.

SirKit sent me a link to this video footage of the aftermath. I believe this is the downtown shopping district of Gulfport which is near where Hwy 49 intersects with Hwy 90. The big church is the First Baptist Church which, if I remember correctly, faces the beach and Hwy 90, just east of that 49/90 intersection. Check out Katrina Damage video

None of the Mississippi posters from the coast northward are online.

Howlin linked some pics earlier from Jackson Mississippi showing extensive damage at Mississippi College just west of Jackson.

The winds have done tree and structural damage. I have a lot of kin near the college.

I imagine the prolific freeper Onyx is out.

Steve Schwartz on the Weather Channel said earlier that the death toll in Mississppi was estimated at over 50 so far.

It's staring to pick up here in Nashville too. Calling for 40 mph winds even here and 70mph gusts...I lose my power in these hills even when someone farts too loud down hollow.

I believe the winds in Jackson were 100+

Amphib 2001 Brittany

Ducks come from DUKW, a military acronym that designated the vehicle as amphibious military personnel carriers. D Stands for the year it was designated, 1942; U for its amphibious nature; K for its all-wheel drive; and W for its dual rear axles.

I drive or maybe that should be drove over that bridge from time to time and it is the Africatown-Cochran Bridge, US 98 in Pritchard. Just this week or so I had notice that massive oil rig being worked on very near the bridge. It only had to be pushed up stream a short distance once it broke free.

If I understand the story correctly, he got caught by a gust from the hurricane as it was slamming into the gulf coast. If the guy was traveling, say, 65 ot 70 mph, and got caught by a wind gust of equal or greater force, you can easily see how such a devastating accident could occur.

Not that it's their primary concern at this point, but hanging out with your feet in the water is best done without thinking about what's in the water.

Plumbers rule: "$#!t runs downhill."

Except during a flood when all sewer lines are saturated and everything diffuses everywhere. Just food for thought.
