LMAO at NOLA..this is not WU where every storm must hit NOLA:)  
but seeing how our atmosphere is forever changing fluid dynamics ,darts has a good of chance as any...

So,you may as well follow through and pull out a hurricane tracking chart and step back 7 paces add a blindfold and toss the dart, lmao  where ever it hits could be your city!!

My roommates/baseball teammates had a dartboard in college.  I loved playing 301.  Go for the trip 20's then nail the low number at the end to zero out for the win!
