NOLA: It could have been worse?

Hard to believe, but the reports are it could have been worse...
Devastating as Katrina was, it would have been far worse but for a puff of dry air that came out of the Midwest, weakening the hurricane just before it reached land and pushing it slightly to the east.
Yes, Katrina was huge. And, yes, it was slow moving.
Those circumstances made Katrina "nearly a worst-case scenario," said Hurricane Research Division meteorologist Stanley Goldberg.
If what we're seeing now is nearly a worst-case, I hate to think what the worst-case would have looked liked.
