I just watched it....there was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING NEW that Ed Rappaport said that he hasn't said all day. Yeah, he kinda pointed a little more to the east as a possible landfall (not much) but he said it could be off 60-75 miles and that would make a huge difference as far as the affects to the north and east of the ACTUAL landfall point. Sheppard Smith made it sound like something was gonna swoop down and kick it straight into N.O. I hate when he does that... FWIW, having been that it's stayed on that NNW/sometimes N course almost all day, I would think we might see a very, tiny, eensy-teensy, wee shift of the track to the..........right? With my record, it'll go west. I am 0-5 in these path changes. Maybe I should say to the west, and I'd be correct. I'll figure it out before hurricane season is over.
Also....are they talking about a slowdown w/Ivan AFTER landfall or BEFORE? Please tell me it's not before...not that after would be any better. Just didn't catch that slowdown thing. Thanks!
