Three years ago today, I was sitting at my Mom’s house in Texas, eyes glued to CNN, watching them describe the destruction happening to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. I remember distinctly one weatherman saying "Whoops, we just lost Slidell" during a live report. Of course, he meant the weather feed, but it was not a great thing to hear.
Today, I find myself packing for another evacuation. I’ve been ordered to evacuate at 7 am tomorrow morning; the entire hospital where I work is going. Gustav is on his way.
This is not good for my continued mental health.
As a tribute to the events of three years ago, I offer my slideshow of images taken of the Signs of Katrina.
