The forecast track is particularly worrisome, as it has Gustav moving south of Cuba and entering into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend. This would likely result in Gustav being a major hurricane when it hits the Gulf.

  1. Great. Just great… Is it wrong to want it to hit one of the other 4 Gulf states instead? Am I bad person for wishing that Alabama, Mississippi, Lousiana, or Texas get this one? Because, frankly, I can’t handle another week of gray and rainy, Tallahassee-does-Seattle. It makes me want to play Russian Roulette while listening to Morissey.
