With this event on our doorstep, I figured I'd run an informal poll to see who's staying up all night to monitor Katrina, and who isn't.

Me personally I'll probably be in category #3 -- up extremely late and then a little sleep around dawn. Already have a pizza in the oven and a brew on the desk. Not that I'm celebrating or anything, but meteorologically, this is quite a show.

Yep, I'll be up probably pretty late watching this... Then catch a couple hours of sleep, and resume watching in the morning... I just hope I don't fall asleep as it makes landfall, that would really bum me out.
 
I'll stay up. Got class at 9:30 and then a meeting with my advisor at 11. Then I have to sned some stuff mail... so I'll prob get to sleep around 2pm lol.

Well, I typically stay up pretty late every night... Of course, tonight will be no exception - and I'll probably stay up even later to see this.
 
Yes it is an amazing show...the largest and strongest that I've ever seen in the Gulf...not that I'm any expert on the subject!

Hmmmm beer and a pizza...doesn't sound half bad:)

Advantage of being in Tokyo: it's only noon here, and the storm should make landfall this evening local time. So, I'll be wide awake.

Disadvantage of being in Tokyo: finding live TV coverage as the storm makes landfall will be difficult. I'll probably have to stick with the internet.
 
I'm coming down with a cold again, otherwise I'd definately be pulling an all-nighter. I can't have this cold spiral out of control due to lack of rest, I've got too much going on for that. Back on the Zicam. Will probably go to sleep around midnight and wake up early close to landfall.
 
My roommate and I are staying up all night watching Fox News and the Weather Channel on our 86" screen. Class tomorrow at 9 but done at 11 so maybe I'll get some sleep after lunch.
 
Well, I just got up from a nap in preparations of this event and will be up for the duration.
With a storm of this historic proportions I couldn't miss the pre-dawn hours and landfall of Katrina.

Well, I've got some beer in the fridge, but I need to get some pizza. Good idea!
 
My roomate and I are from Venice, LA (right in the path) and live in Oklahoma City right now. We'll be watching it all night as tomorrow our families houses might not be there anymore.

I've been up here for several serious hurricanes, this is the scaredest I've been about it yet.
 
Probably stay up later than I should...

I'll probably be up later than I should. The Diet Pepsi will probably see to that. A few hours' sleep and it's off to school and the weather center to catch up -- three guesses what the profs will be talking about tomorrow...
 
With the way things are going, maybe I will get some zzz... Katrina looks to be pulling a typical meteorological letdown. (Good for NO though!)

The timing of this couldn't be worse for me. I have the first part of the Ph.D. qualifying exam tomorrow (6 hours from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M.), and I'm trying to get some final bits of studying in and watching the hurricane at the same time.

Of course, what are my concerns in comparison to the evening that the folks of NO and surrounding areas are dealing with?
 
Normal bedtime is about 12:30, so I'll be up a bit longer. Got class in the morning and work tomorrow evening, so got to get some sleep :wink: . Getting ready to set the VCR 8)

On a normal nite, I wouldnt head to bed until 3 or so... but I have class at noon tomorrow, so I'll likely head to bed sooner than usual, and get up earlier than normal and watch before class.
 
I'll have 30 ninth graders in my Earth Science class waiting for me share all I know about Katrina in the morning. So I'll be staying up late gathering data, maps, etc. This is why I love teaching Earth Science, there are always current events to talk about. It's just that this one will be talked about for a long time!
