Canadian Blue-chip Industrial Forum
  • Here We Go Again: Apparently, it's just one of those years. We here in the Greater New Orleans Area now find ourselves "in the cone" for the 7th time this year. And while we more or less dodged bullets the first 6 times, it looks like this time Zeta is going to hit close enough to do damage. We can only hope it stays a relatively minor Cat 1 & weakens upon approach. But preparations are once again in order for those of us living along the central Gulf Coast. Members with family or other interests in the affected area are welcome to post on the new Hurricane Zeta Self-Help board we just set up. Good luck & stay safe!
