Sometimes it’s the little things

Sometimes it’s the big things, like the Saints winning the Super Bowl and electing a new mayor.  Other times, it’s the little things.  Katie’s in Mid-City has finally reopened.  Jennifer and I had our rehearsal dinner there in 2004.

Yes We Can!

Wow.  Feel so happy about this day. I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all […]

In the Midst of the Financial Crisis

Florida is just kinda out […]


Actually, we’ve been back for a while but much too mentally drained to post. We felt an enormous wave of relief opening the door to the house and seeing everything just as we had left it. That moment of opening the door on return was so vastly different from our last evac and return. The […]

3 years

As if it’s impossible to forget. Especially today with the deja-vu Gustav playing with our fragile heads.

Matt McBride is the man

Courtesy of Loki, this open letter from Matt McBride to the Corps requesting that they release the results of surge model runs to public view in the interests of “effectively communicating risk.” We have tons of tools for modeling wind and direction of storms and those all help us make our plans. But having these […]

“It seems like the water keeps following us”

Man, this would totally suck. Of course, watching changes in the spaghetti models of Gustav has us worrying about pretty much the same thing.
