This storm is much rougher than anticipated earlier.
It's so big and so frackin' slow.
Reports from friends via text is last night not good. No sleep. Periodically the wind shook one friend's house so hard that the newly built shelves came loose from the wall studs, dumping avalanches of books.
Power's gone in many places in New Orleans, including our friends', they text - as well as elsewhere -- 450,000 according to reports. Our friends' phones will be out of juice before the day's out, no doubt.
It's going to be a very long day for our friends on the Gulf. It could continue beyond today. Isaac's that frackin' slow.
