IMO, I think humor is a great way to calm fears and help one to deal with crazy life scenarios. ]

I have downloaded all dvorak images since this storm has become a storm. There are 119 total. I have build these into an animation. Here is the animation if you care to view it. Word of caution: It is a big download at about 12mb.
Additional Note: I will try and do the same later tonight with the IR images.

Am I correct in interpreting this chart (from NOAA) as forecasting a landfall as a Category 1 storm? I've been trying to follow it for the past few days, and that's what I've come to believe from it, but they way its being played up how catastrophic the storm is going to be, I'm beginning to doubt my interpretation. Granted, the forecast could change, or just be flat out wrong, but isn't this pretty much all there is to go on right now?
The graphic from the National Hurricane Center shows much less confidence in the storm's impact. This product is designed to be used by government and emergency management officials. Their forecast is for less than a 50% chance of hurricane force winds along the coast of northeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana. AccuWeather feels this forecast is virtually useless.
