With the models showing a little curve to the NW near LA coast, won't this mean the models are starting to pick up on a strengthing High? If Gust slows down a tad more on the journey, I think he may be heading WNW along our coast... maybe Lake Charles?

The helicopters are carrying HUGE sandbags down to Plaquemine parish to close up some "gaps/holes" in the private levee system down there that was only patched-up. Federal funds could not be alotted to their repair.
folks, you are much more experts than me... i just had the experience with dean last year... but what i know absolutely for sure, is that all this tracks are only a little help. take a look at the cone!
just one example: we were in vacancy about 50 kilometers south of playa del carmen (130 km south of cancun and about 250 north of chetumal). dean was expected for huesday 6 am to impact the cozumel/cancun area. we decided to move to chetumal saturday afternoon. then, wenn we saw the new forecast dean movimg south, we said "okay, motherf..." we will stay and decide monday morning what we should do". so wie did, and it ws a very good decision. dean went to the south to chetumal. we were save in cancun...
sorry for OT! i know that there is no comparison beetwen a vacancy trip and your lifes there.. your families, houses, jobs, etc... i just wanted to tell you, to wait until you can be sure...

Cheshire that turn to NE by these storms was not due to land interaction, but because they had rounded the upper and were feeling the westerlies. From what we are seeing the models it does not apper this will happen with Gustav.
