It's getting darker. Wind picks up, then dies down to nothing. It started to rain, and then stopped.
The eye, I see on the news, is 32 miles wide - and the storm has veered a bit more to the West (closer to us).
Thousands of people are loading up into the Superdome (which, thankfully, can withstand winds up to 200 mph). Everyone else is trying to get out. I-10 is now down to a crawl, but it is moving.
Baret got called in to work, so I'll be facing the first part of the storm alone. He'll be back at 6am, two hours before actual landfall.
It's an amazing storm; perfect actually. The eye is *perfectly* formed, the storm is amazingly well put-together and cohesive. It's going to cause some major damage.
