Here we go again ... the Key's have been evacuated, the schools are closed in Dade and Broward Counties and the transit system is not running today as Rita like Katrina moves towards us.
With her strong winds, heavy rains and tornado threats this small storm is expected to later head off into the Gulf to pick up momentum, before deciding where to make landfall along the Gulf Coast.
I guess if we lived somewhere else, we would just have some other threat to worry about, but ... another Gulf Coast hit, especially near New Orleans may prove to be just to much storm to weather.
What a mess ... just glad that Dad and Panda are already here and that many of that city's residents have been evacuated and are not just sitting there waiting this time.
The "From the Big Apple to the Big Easy Katrina Relief Concert" in New York is today ... Elton John, Fats Domino, Rod Stewart, Jimmy Buffett, Lenny Kravitz, Earth, Wind & Fire, Bette Midler, The Neville Brothers, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band,The Rebirth Brass Band, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello and more ... really wish I could be there.
