Behold

Rising from the waters
I thought this sign was very appropos for a time when the city is rebuilding and come back. Katrina left high water marks on 80% of the houses and buildings in the city. That mean that virtually ever builiding is getting a make over. There are a lot of people not happy with the pace but the fact is that a recent study found that nearly 2/3 of the city's population is back.

A lot remains to be done. But as you drive around, every day you see signs of normalcy return.
And it feels good.

Happy 200th to me
New Orleans Daily Photo is 200 -- this is my 200th post. This adventure began back in April. Hope you have enjoyed the ride
