Gustav--Watch for Flooding in East Texas

We'll go out on a limb now: Gustav will largely spare New Orleans from major damage, only to create massive flooding in East Texas by the end of the week.

The five-day forecast from the National Hurricane Center (below) has Gustav stalling once it goes ashore. By Friday it has barely moved for nearly three days, which raises the possibility of devastating flooding from heavy tropical rains parked over east Texas and much of Louisiana.

Maybe George Bush's Crawford, TX ranch will be washed away in the process.
