THE BLOG IN EXILE CONTINUES: or "Og on the Run"
It is hard to concentrate with a 300 pound gorilla in the room. His name is Isaac but our worst fear down here is that he will act like his sister Katrina. As we explained on Sunday you can call me "Og". Isaac is roughly the size of Texas. Personally, like most people I'd fit in a six foot by two and a half foot pine box. So I don't argue with Texas sized Isacc because we all know what those pine boxes are used for. So I'm on the run with my wife hiding from the brute while he has his way with our house. Being on the run seems strange after long service in the Coast Guard, we normally head toward storms and fires. But that's not my job anymore and if I want to make less work for those whose job it is, my duty is to get out of the way. We won't know until we get into it how well we can keep this up while on the run. We just have to try and see what happens. It is at times like this that we really appreciate our daily readers I'd hate to think I'd go to all the effort of trying only to be writing to myself. So lets start.

We don't know how much we'll be able to cover today but if you want to follow live the close approach of a Texas sized storm to the largest bulk commodities port in the world click here:
and then if you don't mind scroll down every now and then and see if we were able to add anything. We were able to post a description of our trip, our reasoning for Why the Port of New Orleans is worth saving and lessons relative to all this in terms of our much mentioned but under discussed Namazu School. Thanks for checking on us we are now 150 miles inland and maybe 80 feet above sea level. We don't know if we are out of the storm's path but we are in a much safer place than yesterday. Thanks for checking in on us.
