COM: Blogarithmic #21

John at A DC Birding Blog sends out a final reminder:

I and the Bird Reminder -- Next Thursday, September 1, will be the fifth edition of I and the Bird, the blog carnival for birders. If you have a post you would like to submit, please send it to John by tomorrow, Tuesday, August 30. Rules for submissions can be found here. Note that you do not have to be a birder or have a blog that is principally about birds; all that is necessary is a post that shows some enthusiasm for birds or birding or that describes an encounter with birds or birders. (Entries can be submitted to John or to Mike at 10,000 Birds.)

Here's Brendan Loy liveblogging the hurricane.

At 4:30 a.m. it looks like this:

There are some fast-moving doses of heavy rain on the radar loop, but the cumulative look only shows 2-3 inches in New Orleans so far. Rainfall total, coupled with storm surge will make the difference in a lot of lives.

Sent facebook messages to John Edward Hibbert (MS), Ben Thurber (AL), David Osborne (LSU), and Stuart and Scott Davis (MS) to stay out of the storm. Hopefully they're all safe.

Interesting article in today's New York Times about the trade in rare cycads. It's archived.
