My friend Rob is living the Hurricane Isaac experience from a little ways north of New Orleans and has posted some updates since his power has stayed with him so far. Knock on wood, he and his wife seem to be doing okay so far. Everyone wishes it would just get a move on, but it appears Isaac is moving so slowly that it is practically stalled.
Isaac isn't packing the wind punch that Katrina did, but a wide area of sustained heavy rains brings its own punch too. That whole area isn't out of the woods yet, so we should keep Rob and everybody else down there in our thoughts.
