Those “God Hates Fags” dudes are wrong. It’s not gay people that God hates. It’s apparently Louisianians.

It definitely seems to being targeting your birthplace. It looks like it may have found New Orleans this time. We haven’t even finished picking up debris from the last attempt.

It’s not the fact that this particular hurricane is targetting Louisiana. It’s the fact that it’s the third one this season that looks like it’s gonna do a direct strike on Louisiana. Sheesh!

I missed this comment until just after I posted about the records set this season. You missed the two tropical storms that also hit, and this one is definitely going to hit the Big Easy. The good news is that it is fast moving which reduces the amount of rain, but the winds are coming.

Zeta is at the top of the list of the six storms that have come ashore in the US this late in the season as far as wind speed goes.
