Livin' on the Edge (of the Cone of Uncertainty)

Since yesterday, Ike's forecast track has shifted dramatically to the left.

That's a good thing, and it leaves me cautiously optimistic about Ike. It's looking way better than yesterday, when the forecast had Ike pointed right at Galveston. Now it looks to be aimed more towards Corpus.

However, it's important to remember that Ike's still four days out and not even in the Gulf yet, so it's too early to sound the all clear. I don't expect to be able to do that until Wednesday night or Thursday at the earliest.

I'll be back tomorrow with another update.
