NEW ORLEANS - Hurricane Katrina strengthened to a dangerous Category 5 storm on Sunday with 160 mph sustained wind as residents of south Louisiana jammed freeways in a rush to get out of the low-lying region and head inland to higher ground.

Dear Friends,

I appreciate all the advice and well wishes and prayers. I don't know how this is going to turn out. I'm not going to lie to you and pretend that I believe this will be a cake walk. I mean, I don't even know what a cake walk is. Is that some kind of event where you walk for charity and eat cake when you're done? Or maybe you eat the cake while you walk. I just don't know how it works. But I know this: I won't be eating any cake, and any walking I do will be more of a patrol than anything else.

Everyone says I should leave, Part of me wants to. But, my parents are staying, and I know I'm going to have to rescue them.

I love you guys, and I want you to say nice things about me if I die.

a cake walk is where people bring in cakes that they baked and put them in a circle on the floor and then you walk around like musical chairs and if you stop in front of a cake when the music ends, you get to keep it. i've been thru a few hurricanes and i can definitely say they weren't at all like that.

i'll certainly be thinking about you (wtf we just met last week?) and my favorite city. how will we know if you die? did you shop for supplies? katrina knocked out my wifey's power in florida and the worst part for them was not having anything to eat but junk food. do you own a boat? an ark would be preferable but anything that floats will do.

Cake Walk originated from malnourished slaves dancing and performing tricks to please their masters in front of their guests, thes best one would earn a slice of cake.

I was gonna say that... lol! There was a Baby-sitter's Little Sister book about cake walks... XD.
