No better news this morning. I just spoke to my parents and they are hunkered down. Even my usually stoic father sounded nervous. He didn't like hearing that this hurricane will be the second strongest to ever hit the northern Gulf Coast, second only to the legendary Camille, which if you've ever been to Biloxi you know that even 36 years later the city still shows signs of that storm's damage. Right now, it looks like an early afternoon landfall around the Florida-Alabama line, almost exactly where Ivan came ashore last September. Ivan has been called a "100-year hurricane." This one could make Ivan seem tame.
