This is a bad one. The computer models had been all over the place but now are in better agreement that the storm will get fairly close to the Metroplex. One respected model even shows Gustav stalling over North Texas through next Saturday.
Meanwhile, out in the Gulf, it is predicted that the hurricane will briefly hit Cat 5 after passing over Cuba, then revert to Cat 4 before landfall. While there is a part of me that digs wild weather, there is also a knot in my stomach, knowing how many lives will be changed forever by this monster.
