Hurricane Katrina appears to be very, very bad, for those that don’t yet know. It’s a Category 5 storm at this point, with a storm surge likely to be in the twenty-feet-high range when it makes landfall.
The Mayor of New Orleans has ordered a general evacuation of the city, which lies thirty feet below sea level.
Time to pray, folks.
In the meanwhile, Leah and I celebrated our second anniversary together this weekend in a borrowed house; we went out to Viva, the fresh-pasta place in Northampton, and we are now recovering from various overindulgences.
