Stormy Weather

Hurricane Katrina seems to play a role in Colorado, with some of the players.. Scott included. This is from Rocky Mountain News:

"....WEATHER CHANNEL: Hurricane Katrina is more than a curiosity to Rockies pitchers Mike DeJean and Scott Dohmann and catcher Danny Ardoin. The three Louisiana natives have family living in the state and they are tracking the path of the hurricane closely.

Dohmann said so far, things look good for the three Rockies. Their families all live far enough west of New Orleans that they are optimistic the brunt of the storm will miss them. Dohmann's family lives in Morgan City, 50 miles south of Baton Rouge, which is 80 miles northwest of New Orleans.

"They have said they might not see rain, just wind," Dohmann said. "It's not mandatory (evacuation)."

DeJean's family lives in Baton Rouge.

"Talked to my parents," he said. "They just left church and were headed to get something to eat. It's not like you are going to tell my dad to do anything."

Ardoin's family is from Ville Platte, La., which is about 95 miles northwest of Baton Rouge
