The  television talking heads seem disappointed. As of 9am, NOAA still hasn’t declared Isaac to be a hurricane. It can’t seem to get organized and there is a real problem even identifying the eye. At this point, maximum wind gusts are 70 mph. 74 mph makes it a weak category One hurricane. However, there is […]


For those of you who follow me, I suspect I will be a little incommunicado for the next couple of days or maybe more as I leave New Orleans while Hurricane Isaac approaches.
