Just wanted to wish all my fellow Southerners good luck in the days to come. Looks like Ivan's going to give us quite a shiner in a few days.
I live about 100 miles up from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and already my town is running out of gas at the stations, and my local Wal-Mart is completely out of bottled water. I talked with the lady that manages the Ramada Inn here, and she said all their rooms were booked. Looks like folks know this massive storm is a killer, and are taking no chances.
Hope everyone impacted by this storm makes it through, with their families and homes (and Star Wars collections, of course) intact.
