The thing that bothered me most about hurricane Gustav was the fact that it turned out to be a big non-event.  I know that its good for the populace of Louisiana & Texas and such.   When days and dollars are spent on such an event you build this expactation of the raw power of nature being unleashed apon you and in the end, when that doesn’t happen there is this sense of dissapointment.  None the less Gustave did leave me with a few rare colors in the sky and for that I am gratefull.
