Legendary Voodoo Priestess Marie Laveau might've had something to do with last week's hurricane steaming up straight for Narlins, only to cut east and devastate the Florabama. If she did, she was either winking during the incantation or she left out a crucial utterance because Ivan is back from the dead.

hurricane tropical storm from hell is due south of the Louisiana coast, headed mostly west toward a projected landfall in Galveston tomorrow.
This link to the NOAA website shows Ivan's tracking maps in a loop. There's a rather big gap where NOAA thought Ivan "petered" out in northwets Georgia (and you have to follow the tail of the projection - the little yellow circle - because the bulbous white part is where they thought it would go).
Rumor has it that a crew of doughty cajuns have peeled the bark and branches off of a huge cypress tree, strapped it to a barge and headed out into the storm to pile-drive that giant wooden stake through Ivanovich's watery heart.
