As if things didn't suck enough yet in New Orleans...

We have had two tornadoes and a major fire in the past several days.

The tornadoes ripped up the airport and added insult to injury in one of the worst-flooded parts of town, shredding some houses whose owners had already begun to gut and repair.

Now they get to start over.

The fire took out a historic movie theater, a theater where I remember seeing "Godzilla" as a child. Low water pressure in the city required the intervention of helicopter bucket brigades, bringing back shudders from the days immediately after Katrina, when we watched our home town burn and flood at the same time.

I'll write about knitting next time.
