Everyone on the Hurricane Coast, and most of all my people of New Orleans: I’ll see you on the other side. We are the people who came through, the people who remember. Whatever happens, we will rise above.
Toulouse Street is strangely quiet. I haven’t seen a bird today, but as dusk approaches they are callling from the trees. About half of us are still here, but by dawn tomorrow I expect our street’s population to be one or none. (That one is not me).
Toulouse Street is singing off for now. For more Odds Bits of Life in New Orleans, you can check me out on http://www.twitter.com/wetbankguy.
More back here perhaps after we unload in Memphis and pour the frist evac drink.
