Not Again!
Rita Gets PMS On Us

Right about now, Hurricane Rita has been upgraded to a Category 5 storm.

In plain English, that would mean that there's a potential for another New Orleans moment.

And since hurricanes love warm waters, expect Rita to do her damage around the Gulf of Mexico. By that time, New Orleans will really be sinking!

Bourbon blues on the street loose and complete
Under skies all smoky blue-green
I can Forksake the dixie dead shake
So we dance the sidewalk clean
My memory is muddy what's this river I'm in
New Orleans is sinking and I don't want to swim

- Tragically Hip, "New Orleans is Sinking"
In the meantime, three of Her Canadian Majesty's Ships are heading back to Halifax after a nice little stay in Biloxi, Mississippi. Will they be needed for another Unison? Who knows?
