Gustav storm watch
Update, 7:37 PM
We're starting to feel the outer bands -- roiling clouds, gusty rain -- and I am starting crawfish stew. Chris is fretting that I won't finish it before the power goes out, but I think we'll be OK until late tonight, anyway. Great radio entertainment on WWL. Deke Bellavia taking calls from people in the throes of evacuation, people who are staying, and old guys who want to pray for us reeeeeeeallllllly slllloooooooooowly. They just said there are fewer than 10,000 people left in New Orleans. So far, all is peaceful.
