Gustav Watch, Day 4, Back Home

Made it back home last night on an empty plane from Philly to New Orleans. Everyone got to lay down across their seats in coach. Pretty interesting. It looks increasingly likely that Gustav is headed for Lafayette but since the storm has yet to enter the gulf, I am holding out hope for an unforeseen shift in the projection.

Right now the path takes it pretty close to Vermilion Bay. For those of you not from around here, that is about 40 miles south of our house (point A below). I think that it is actually projected to hit a little east of the bay (point B below) but it keeps shifting back and forth with each new track.

Looks like we might be headed to Arkansas to play some golf this Sunday.

Looking at the models, only 2 of the 6 are projected to hit LA. Both of those show landfall between BR and NO. But it's not even in the gulf yet. No worries.
