Too Weird: Katrina, Meet Ernesto

Projected 5-day track of Tropical Depression5 as of 5am EST, Friday
Tropical Depression 5 isn't a hurricane or even a tropical storm yet and hopefully won't become either.
But as the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches, a storm that will be named Ernesto if it gains enough strength is taking a nearly identical track through the Caribbean as did the ferocious Catagory 4 storm that struck the Gulf Coast and New Orleans last August 29.
Meanwhile, Slate has a terrific package of Katrina stories and photographs. Click here and be amazed.
