Isaac Thread #1 From New Orleans

20:00
Like most here in the path of Isaac, having some trouble sleeping so I thought I would makes some observations of things prior to Isaac's landfall

Starting to look like a the beginnings of a Science-Fiction movie down here in New Orleans. I keep thinking of "Independence Day" for some reason...

The populace here are very calm and collected, everyone is busy updating each others contact points.

In the stores bottled water is now gone from the shelves (I went to two stores), canned food is running low.

Lines around the block at gas stations.

I am pretty well stocked, water is a bit low will make another run for some tomorrow and gas. Also want to get a five gallon back up. Will go for all that tomorrow after work, along with another bottled water run.

I am looking warily at the fact, that I am on the first floor and the apt complex I live in is bordered by canals that lead to lake Pontchartrain on three sides. The closest canal in not 75 yards away.

Govt (I work for the Govt) just sent me a 2nd alert testing my cell phone.

They are starting to check all the hurricane shutters at the Michod Shuttle facility but everything is still go for work today. They might let us off early considering the situation.

Michod is a fortress, and rode Katrina out with the National Guard stationed there. It is high value, since over a third of the govt agencies gets paid through it. Not to Mention on the NASA side it looks like that's where the Saturn stage booster will be built for the replacement for the shuttle...the new SLS.

An acquaintance who is in the Navy and stationed here, says he likely will be evacuated today with his family.

Looking at being in my first on land hurricane (was in the Navy). I just moved to New Orleans from New Mexico.
