Hurricanes/tropical storms suck large donkey balls.

That's all.

It will suck for those of us trying to get to that area on Friday. I'm hoping it's gone mid-morning (please!).

Somehow, I see myself calling you and giving you hourly updates as I sit in airports trying to get to NYC.

Every June most of us down here do a mental inventory about what we need to lay in a supply of. Candles, matches, bug spray, liquor (lots of that) batteries ... things to get you through until the power comes back on.
I have a friend who's mother lost a freezer full of meat during Camille. The minute a hurricane hits the Gulf her mother starts cooking all the meat in the house so nobody will starve for the 3-4 days that are usually spent with spotty utility service. Almost everyone has some wierd hurricane custom or another. (Mine is to have stuff on hand and enough of it because I have this belief that if I prepare for a disaster, it never happens.) Sometimes when you take a direct hit or are on the Eastern Edge of the storm you get some serious damage and flooding.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor ( altar located in the St. Louis Cathedral ) is reputed to have turned away a huge hurricane years ago and when there is a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico, the candles are lit and usually they bring in extra racks of them for the faithful.
