Woke up with it last night, having a horrible, horrible dream about the hurricane (and 10 hours later, it's still low-grade in the background). I am in northeast Florida, far from the potential path, but I grew up in New Orleans. I missed the start of first grade because of Camille (and that wasn't a direct hit). All my life I grew up hearing stories about the Big One that was coming -- the one that would put N.O. under 25 feet of water and wipe it off the map. My prayers are out there for all of you in the storm's path. I have so many friends still in the area, and I just hope they are not so stubborn as to try to avoid the mandatory evacuation if they truly have a choice. Please be safe.
