Katrina +3: Waiting on the Big Swede

Gov. Haley Barbour issued a state of emergency declaration for the southern part of Mississippi on Thursday afternoon due to the potential threat coming from Gustav, “The Big Swede.”

“Now is the time to prepare yourself, your family and your friends,” Barbour said in a statement.

Barbour also urged “all Mississippians to please take this storm seriously. One of the most important lessons we learned after Hurricane Katrina was that there is no substitute for awareness and self-help, especially in the days before a hurricane is predicted to hit.” link

We’re ready. I think. Still have a few loose ends to tie up, but most of the preparation has been done.

In the meantime, be sure to enjoy some great college football.
Go Dawgs!
