The Big One

Well, it finally happened. We always hear about “The Big One.” The earthquake that will make California fall into the sea or the super volcano that will blow up a few states…. But it never happens.

This time, it’s happening.

As you’ve probably heard by now, barring 2 consecutive acts of God, Hurricane Katrina is going to dub a plot of land, “The place that used to be New Orleans.”

~1,000,000 people will be homeless or dead. This will make 9/11 look like child’s play.

Even as I type this, is seems like a dream…. (BTW- Pardon me if I ramble.)

New Orleanians have a sense of humor… Less face it, to put up with our politicians you need to… But that was on display in the hotel lobby where people were greeting each other, “So, where did you used to live?”

I met a woman who used to live uptown. I told her I used to live in Metairie.

I used to often think “Darn, nothing worth blogging ever happens in New Orleans.” Now I’d just setting for blogging from New Orleans.

We’re going to eat.

How do you say "don't mess with Texas" in Spanish?
So Long, Thanks For The Memories
