Looks like one might need a rowboat for this mountain this week. Hope everyone is safe and evacuated down that way. SOunds like the Superdome is going to be renamed the Supershelter

NE Miss is predicted to get 3-6" rain and winds to 45 mph. We're seeing evacuees from South Alabama in Huntsville. Maybe all the beer cans on Driskill will either wash away or blow away.

In addition to such well-known mountaineering hazards as avalanches, landslides, falls, blizzards, whiteouts, lightning, hypothermia, and frostbite, we can add hurricanes to the list of hazards that mountaineers may encounter when ascending state highpoints. It appears that several state highpoints, such as <a href=http://americasroof.com/la.html>Driskill Mountain</a> of Louisiana and <a href=http://americasroof.com/ms.html>Woodall Mountain</a> of Mississippi, are in the direct path of <a href=http://www.weather.com/newscenter/tropi ... >Hurricane Katrina</a>. See the weather forecasts for <a href=http://www.weather.com/weather/local/US ... Arcadia</a>, LA (closest city to Driskill Mountain) and <a href=http://www.weather.com/weather/local/38 ... >Tupelo</a>, MS (closest city to Woodall Mountain).

Based on my view of the <a href=http://www.network54.com/Forum/message? ... 7510>storm track</a>, it appears that <a href=http://americasroof.com/la.html>Driskill Mountain</a> is west of the storm's northeasterly movement and will be spared. However, it appears that <a href=http://americasroof.com/ms.html>Woodall Mountain</a> of Mississippi is in its direct path. Also, look for very wet conditions at <a href=http://americasroof.com/oh.html>Campbell Hill</a> of Ohio later this week as the remnants of the storm move across western Ohio.

I went hiking last year during Hurricane Francis. I was on the western ridge in the Blacks, about 3 miles west of Mt Mitchell. I have never been wetter, except in a pool. The winds were howling.

Expect Mt Rogers, Black Mt, Hoye Crest, Campbell Hill, Spruce Knob, and Mt Davis to get alot of rain this week.
