<p>Any inputs from anyone on how they are riding out the storm would be appreciated.&nbsp; If Michoud is damaged, all questions about preserving Shuttle ET tank tooling could be moot!&nbsp; Anyone know what parrish Michoud is in? Fox and CNN don't know from Michoud, only by parrish.</p><p>Ad Luna! Ad Ares! Ad Astra!</p>

<font size="2">It is in Orleans Parish, NE of town and about 3 miles from the southern shore of Lake Ponchatrain.&nbsp; It looks like Katrina passed closer to Michoud than Gustav, so there's reason for optimism.<br /></font>
