Katrina, Katrina, Go AWAY!

In case you're wondering, I'm in Jackson.

UPDATE: Wow. This place looks like a war zone, but thankfully everyone of my friends and family are ok. I'll post more when I get a chance. I have some things to share, but it'll have to wait.

UPDATE...Latest satellite picture. We're getting lots of wind now. Forecasters are calling for gusts in the 70-80 mph range, which is enough to knock over trees and cause roof damage. My company is closing at noon and then I'm headed home. I have batteries, canned food, candles, two flashlights, water, and a full tank of gas. Oh, and two fifths of Crown Royal and one fifth of Kettle One vodka.

Keep your fingers crossed, this could be ugly. And say a quick prayer for folks on the Gulf Coast and in Louisiana. They're getting hammered.



Too close for safe Howard!

Harold, take care of yourself! I'm thinking about you...

Sending lots of good thoughts your way, Howard.

Can we have another update?! I hope you're OK!

I just got an email from Howard and he asked me to post to let you all know he's OK!

Yeah, I'm good. No power, but other than that, I'm ok. At work now trying to bring stuff back up. I'll post when I get a second.

Would you mind leaving a comment that says I'm good, just busy? I need to let my 10's of fans know.

South Mississippi got hit really, really hard. It'll be tough when I fly home in October

Thinking about you, Howard. Hope all is well and that you can keep your powder dry, so to speak.

Thinking of you Howard. Stay safe.
